Bubbles will burst on the top. Once they burst and don’t seal back over it is time to flip the pancake. I use a spatula. The second side will take much less time as the first. Cook until golden brown.

Stromboli

Stromboli
i mixed yeast, some corn oil, sugar and water. i then added like a couple cups of flour slowly and let it rise for like an hour and a half.

Stromboli
fried up some sweet italiain sausage (minus the casings), peperoni, salami, zucch, olives, mushrooms, some Italian seasonings in a pan. i did not use any butter nor oil.

Stromboli
i sliced the cheese. this failed, i recommend grating your cheese.

Stromboli
i rolled up the filling in the dough. the speckled one was a failed attempt because i rolled the dough too thin. its not a crepe. let the dough rise again and glazed with egg water. i baked at 425 for like 30 minutes or maybe less.

Stromboli
slice

Smoothie Recipe

Each time I make a smoothie it is a little bit different. Bur some things I have noticed help a lot as far as getting the consistency the way I like it and the taste interesting and bright.

I have illustrations! That makes everything better, right?

Ahead of time I use filtered water to make my ice cube in a tray. Good water in, better tasting ice. That’s what I like.

Fill the bottom fifth of the blender with ice.

Don’t attempt to fill the top fifth of the blender, that is strictly for professionals.

Ice

Then cover the ice with juice.

Juice

It could be any type of juice or liquid. If it covers the ice, it will blend evenly and quickly. Blend those two ingredients now.

Initial Blend

Add two bananas.

Bananas

Blend them now.

Including Bananas

Now add fruit. Today I have blueberries. I like to wash them in the sink before adding. Almost any kind of fruit serves here.

Blueberries

Now blend these.

Blueberries in there

Add Yogurt. I use like um half a cup or so.

Yogurt

and blend again.

Yogurt in there

Lately I have been adding a spoonful of Coco Lopez. I did not have any so I used a shot of Coconut Toriani. It is not as good but it is nice to have some coconut flavor in there.

Coconut

It probably is sweet enough already but sometimes I add honey.

Honey

Blend once more and serve with a straw.

Serve

Voila.
