Christmas in Harlem

I don't know why I'm getting excited about moving into an apartment considering that I still have another year and a half to stay on campus, but I guess it's never too early to start getting ready for real life. I also decided that it's time to start learning how to cook for real, so I now officially proclaim myself as an at home chef in training. I got myself a notebook and everything, and I'm writing down any and every recipe that I consider worthy of my noting. IT'S OFFICIAL.

Winter break is going good, and I'm happy to be away from the campus for a little while. COLLEGE IS A DRAG. Speaking of winters, Christmas is right around the corner so I should probably go start wrapping some gifts. Hold up, am I even done shopping yet? WHY AM I POSTING THIS SO OFF SCHEDULE? Shouts to STEPHK for blunting the creative process. Got a love them cyber distractions though.
It's called a high rise pancake/German pancake/it's-not-really-a-pancake-but-it's-good-as-hell-though. All you need:

1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
a few pinches of sugar, salt and nutmeg if you've got it 
[less salt more sugar].

preheat the oven to 425 and let the butter melt in an ovenproof skillet. Once melted, remove and add all the other previously mentioned ingredients [whisk them together before hand]. Return it to the oven and let that b***h bake until golden brown.  Remove and serve immediately with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a bit of lemon juice, or if you're me, scratch the lemon and go with honey instead. It's really easy and it makes you look like a boss, so go for it. HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
