2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately – then fold together. These take a little longer to cook than regular pancakes – but they are totally worth the wait! You can eat them plain (that's what we do) or for an extra special treat – top them off with some caramel syrup!
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Stir everything together except the soda and vanilla. Bring to a boil, and cook for 7 minutes. Turn off and add baking soda (this makes it fluffy) and then vanilla. We recently found out that this is fantastic over pancakes or waffles with fresh peaches! So yummy!
This is a really fun site where people go and air all of their "bookfessions"…I think this would be one of mine…I actually love the smell of books!
Remember how much fun it was at sidewalk sales? All of the books, tables, and collectable furniture? We had so much fun we are doing a garage sale with our "overstock" of collectables and of course books! This will be on Friday and Saturday starting at 8:30 at 147 North 100 East in Farmington.
We have tables, this awesome couch set, desks and lots of fun stuff. Stop by and find something you can't live without!
This is a great way to use those kids books that have been ripped or colored in or otherwise "loved" beyond repair…brought to you by Craftster.
I love writing letters and have been looking for a multi-pack of different colored envelopes for a while now. An epiphany happened! I can just make them myself (just unfold an existing envelope to lay flat and trace it as a template. cut out, fold and gluestick…VOILA!). The first day, I used magazine pages, but found the end results to be too flimsy. Paper stacks can be so expensive! So I went to a yard sale and bought like 10-15 picture or kids books that were in really crappy shape for 20 cents each.
I now have an unreasonable amount of envelopes (I think almost 300)!
What is "trade credit" anyway? My favorite thing is when readers come in the store and they are trying to explain how it works to their friends. Usually they just say – I'm not sure how it works…but it does…just let them figure it for you.
For those of you who would like to know the exact science behind paperback trade credit (not to be confused with cash credit) here you go…
70% of 1/3 the cover price is given on acceptable trade paperbacks as paperback trade credit. (This means it has to be in readable, non stinky condition or a book that we don't already have 20 copies of). When you buy a book using your trade credit, 1/3 the cover price is taken off of your trade credit account and we charge an exchange fee of .50 per book, plus sales tax. The computer calculates the 1/3 using the current retail price. Any remaining credit will be kept on file. Hardbound fiction books receive $2.00 trade credit.
The best practice for paperback trade credit is to treat it like food storage. You don't want to start making cookies one day only to find out that you are out of chocolate chips! You always want to have a little extra put away to use the next time.
