Lazy mornings don’t happen often in our house, with me usually waking up early for a run and then rushing out the door to make it to work on time, and Marc typically sleeping in after an overnight or evening shift at the hospital, but when it does happen we take full advantage of it.
When McCormick’s asked me to create a photo journal of a meal that symoblizes homemade cooking to kick off their American Homemade Program my mind immediately jumped to Sunday Supper, as that’s a meal that I think should always be homemade. The more I thought about it though, I realized how Sunday morning breakfast is also a great example of homemade cooking. Sure, you can jump in your car and drive to IHop for your stack of cakes, but is there anything better than sleeping in, drinking cup after cup of coffee, staying in your PJ’s until noon, and the smell of bacon and pancakes cooking away in your own kitchen? For me, that symbolizes home cooking more than anything.
Slippers and PJ’s are not optional when making Sunday morning pancakes, just so ya know.
Also helpful: having a pancake flipping assistant so you can get action shots of Sunday morning pancakes.
Coffee is also not optional.
In addition to McCormick’s American Homemade program, they’ve also introduced a fun way to find new recipes and meal plan, called FlavorPrint. You start out on the website by liking or disliking a number of ingredients and cooking methods and then McCormick creates your FlavorPrint accordingly. It’s the neatest thing and I’ve already made three things using my FlavorPrint!
Don’t pancakes eaten while in your PJ’s just taste better too?
So what is your definition of “American Homemade”? Is it a Sunday dinner pot roast? Your grandma’s famous sugar cookie recipe? Your favorite lasagna? I want to know!
