Today (well, June 18 to be precise) we celebrate Modern Martha’s 2nd birthday. Over the past 730 days, I have written about creating storage space in a pocket-size apartment, glitter, glitter again, oh.. and glitter again, pancakes, pancakes again (ok, so I love glitter and pancakes), the most adorable snowmen cookies you’ll ever eat, decorating around a green couch, and oh. my. gosh. look how long my hair was. Today I thought I would share with you Modern Martha’s top viewed posts. Enjoy!
So you all know I am neither vegan nor vegetarian, but I like to go on vegan kicks every now and then. As much as I enjoy dairy, it is not my friend (nor is it yours!), and it’s really best to avoid. It was a very magical day when I discovered Bisquick (in the US) is vegan, and even though the recipe calls for egg, they are absolutely unnecessary. Just use the milk substitute of your choice (right now I’m loving Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk blend).
I promise, I didn’t photoshop the before and afters, I am just that GREAT of a photographer! Don’t worry.. my friend Amanda has since shown me the way of white balance. These whitestrips work, and they work incredibly well. WORTH IT.. but you know, wait for a sale or something.
This is not the same as the fluffy stuff you make in the oven, but it’s bready and bananay, and it’s simple to make. I still prefer the real thing, but the whole single-serving, microwavable trend really got the best of me.
By now it should be quite obvious that I like bananas and pancakes, and vegans must really love their pancakes, too. My top search terms of all time are “vegan pancakes bisquick,” “vegan bisquick pancakes,” and “vegan pancakes with bisquick.” So, yeah.. And please do not overlook the peanut butter syrup. It’s the bomb.
This is a tried and true recipe from my grandma. She made this a couple times when I paid a visit during college, and I didn’t forget it. I know it seems odd, but it’s not Jello like you’d normally think of it. In this recipe it becomes more of a pie filling. You just have to try it to understand.
Here’s to another two years.. or more!
