An Open Letter to Sourdough Blueberry Pancakes

Dear Deliciousness,

Before coffee, chocolate, or fruit tarts - you were there for me Sourdough Blueberry Pancakes.  You have never wavered.  Thank you for comforting me when I'm down, making weekends brighter, and providing continuity to a strange and wandering life.

Your sweet, tangy wonder wakes up my mouth and reminds me that there are adventures everywhere and that one persons "yuck" is another person "yum".

As you sizzle in the pan I smell the wood smoke and see the lamps flicker.  You are my sweetest and most sorrowful moments in one bite, most delightful Sourdough Blueberry Pancakes, I love you.

Hearts & Hugs,
The Expat Table

Lately we have been using this recipe from

Make your starter and wait.  Give it a week to get going and it will taste lovely pretty quickly.  Once you have your starter you are set.  You can have sourdough pancakes whenever you want.  We also make sourdough crepes.  A recipe we need post already.
