If I ever had to describe myself in just one sentence I would probably state: A believer of the Socrates’ thought. To the same extent another phrase would work as well: Just a (another?) foodie.
Merging the two sentences: a Socratic foodie. It being understood that I know I know nothing – as Socrates legendarily stated - I happened to acquire a sort of knowledge in the kitchen because I went through quite a few failures, disasters and lousy recipes unworthy of being published or just shared.
I am a pancake lover. As such I play with flour, milk and other genuine ingredients as often as I can. My passion for pancakes, both savory and sweet, made me build confidence in handling the tools of the trade. Before trying my hands on these Yogurt pancakes I even thought I could brag about some culinary skills. Surprise-surprise I ended up making an all wrong batter able to deflate my confidence.
In the attempt of getting low carb pancakes and live happily “slimly” ever after, I almost entirely replaced flour with Greek yogurt. It did not work out: flour and its hated carbs are needed to structure both in shape and flavor the recipe.
These images I am showing you here, were taken after a second attempt as a proof of a revised, tasty, discretely good-looking recipe. Adding more flour made my pancakes gain consistency and shape. It’s again Flour 1 – Daniela 0. And thus I come back to the fact that I know I know nothing. Yet again it is a matter of trial and error, inside and outside the kitchen.
