Boiled Lobsters

2 medium-sized lobsters
12 or more cups water
1 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
3 to 4 dried bay leaves (break each leaf in half )


Bring the water to a boil in a big pot with salt, peppercorns, and herbs. Add the lobsters and lower heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes or until lobsters have turned red and cooked.   Serve with lemon-butter sauce.

*Serves 2 to 3

Basic Pancake

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons refined sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter or canola oil
1 egg, lightly beaten

*Preheat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Do not grease pan when cooking pancakes.

Put flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl and mix together.  In a separate bowl, combine  egg, milk, and melted butter or canola oil and mix together.

Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, a little at a time.  Starting at the center of the flour mixture, mix slowly with a rubber spatula or a hand whisk in a circular motion until you reach the side of the bowl. Do not overwork the flour.

Pour the batter to the heated non-stick pan using a 1/4 measuring cup (for dry ingredients). When bubbles appear on top (about 3 minutes), flip the pancake and cook the other side for another two minutes.

Makes about 6 to 7  four and a half  inch pancakes.

*Serves 3 to 4

*Serve with butter and maple syrup.

*Sprinkle some blueberries or sliced strawberries (optional).
