No one seemed to care that N.Y. Times columnist and heath guru Jane Brody pooh-poohed evidence to not wash chickens, but several people wrote to say, what is that recipe for buckwheat pancakes? This is a modified version of a recipe in a book – those paper-based things that used to exist – by Jane Brody. The family likes it (that’s my Benjamin Button-like mom, who seems to look younger as she gets older, along with 20-year-old daughter, Braunwynn, and the other usual suspects). 1 cup buttermilk (which is so bloody expensive in Australia I just add lime juice to lite milk) I egg 1 tbsp vanilla oil, if you want honey, if you want 2 cups buckwheat flour 1 tbsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda dash of salt Garnish with fruit (they liked the mango) and maple syrup (from Canada, eh? Thanks mom).
It’s a recipe I adopted from the N.Y .Times’ Jane Brody about 25 years ago, when I started making them for my eldest daughter, Madelynn.
1 cup buttermilk (but I just use milk with Tahitian limes because buttermilk is ridiculously expensive in Australia)
lots of frozen berries
Canadian (eh) maple syrup.
And no licking of the batter; Australia has an egg problem.
At 75, Jack Nicholson mentioned pancakes as one of his life lessons.
“What I wish I knew at 18? Everything — from wishing I learned a foreign language to becoming a good chef. I was a short order cook for a while in New Jersey in between acting jobs. One day, a woman came in to ask for pancakes and my pancake came out about 3 inches thick. She said: ‘What the hell is this?’ I lost my temper, hit the pancake and said, ‘Make your own damn pancakes!’
“So you can add wishing I knew how to control my temper to that list.”
Nicholson also added, “I no longer have the energy to both work and fool around. So the last few movies I’ve done, I have hardly left the hotel at nights.”
Dr. Barbara Brookmyer, county health officer, said in an e-mail that 18 cases of infection were reported, nine confirmed by stool sample testing, and nine probable.
The infections were linked to sausage and meat pudding consumed at the benefit breakfast, Brookmyer said.
The meat products were originally from a Frederick County 4-H Camp and Activities Center butchering event held Jan. 27 at the Mount Pleasant Ruritan Club.
The camp center is a nonprofit not directly affiliated with the 4-H youth development group, 4-H Extension Educator Mike Kuster said.
Neil Gaffney, press officer with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, said its investigation is ongoing. The USDA investigation includes tracing the pork products’ origin.
