rice cooker pancake

Yumm-o. This really is more like a cake. A big delicious breakfast cake. This is the lazy way to do breakfast. Just my style! Breakfast with just the push of a button. One and Done. Adding chunks of chocolate, sliced bananas, and blueberries would be a scrumptious idea. This way makes fewer dishes to wash and will put my negleted rice cooker to work.

DIY Strawberry Honey Jam (4 Ingredients And No Sugar Or Pectin Added)

I had no idea that in traditional jam, for every 2 pints of strawberries you need 7 cups of sugar. That sugar is a part of what makes it delicious. But what about those of us who don’t want that much sweetener in our diets? I can’t just abandon jam altogether! Our relationship is time tested and has endured so much. This recipe from Old World Garden Farms uses only 4 ingredients and I can’t wait to try it!
