Pancakes, Crepes, Waffles & French Toast Recipe Book
Hardback. By Hannah Miles
So, you like to start your lazy weekend with a stack of pancakes, dripping with maple syrup and topped with crisp, smoky bacon? But what about flavouring those pancakes with fig and ricotta and topping them with an orange syrup? While Crepes Suzette makes a sophisticated French dessert, would you have thought to fill your crepes with the quintessential English combination of rhubarb and custard, instead?
It's a fact that whichever way you choose to serve them, simple griddled treats are the ultimate comfort food. However they are so much more than a leisurely brunch or quick dessert option; pancakes, crepes, waffles and French toast can be endlessly reinvented for any occasion, and Hannah Miles has some wonderful ideas to get you started, from thick American-style Pancakes, such as Blueberry Buttermilk to classic French-style Crepes. Hardback. Written by Hannah Miles. Published April 2014.

Want to celebrate her birthday with a bang?
Adventure is her middle name. Shes always game for a hike, bicycle ride, surfing session, or something wild! But how do you find adventurous gifts for women who make excitement their middle name?
Start off by finding an exciting activity she has yet to cross off of her bucket list. Think about what type of adventurous activities she likes. Is she a stereotypical adrenaline junkie? Or does she enjoy outdoor adventures?
When you find the right activity for the birthday girl, tie in the right gifts for women who love adventure.
So how do you start her birthday off on the right foot?
Whats one classic gift you can give first thing in the morning thats almost always appreciated? Breakfast in bed, of course! A waffle maker and a creperie set make great gifts for women who love to cook. But present these gifts to her only after youve used them to cook her a luxurious breakfast. And dont forget, if you do serve her breakfast in bed, make sure you dont stick her with the dishes!
Want to surprise her with an adrenaline-filled adventure?
After youve woken her up with her favourite breakfast treats, whats next? If you want to surprise your special someone with an adventure that will get her adrenaline pumping and her heart racing, start with a helicopter ride or take her skydiving!
If she loves spontaneity, dont reveal the surprise until moments before. When making plans to go out of town together, try to reveal as little as possible. Tell her what shell need to pack and when you all will be returning home. And for a little extra fun, give her a hint. If youre taking her skydiving, give her a paper plane making kit.
What about taking her on an outdoor adventure?
If the special woman in your life loves the great outdoors, consider planning a whole day of outdoor adventure. Start by planning a picnic. If appropriate, this is the perfect time to make a sweet, romantic gesture. Pack some champagne, strawberries and chocolate.
Before or after the picnic, take her to see something shes never seen before. Does she love waterfalls? Find one shes never seen before and surprise her! What could possibly make better gifts for women who love the outdoors than a whole waterfall? Well, if you have other small, light, and portable gifts for her, bring them on the trek with you.
A final tip to help you celebrate her birthday with a bang:
When buying gifts for women who love spontaneity and excitement, show your wild side by planning an adventure for the two of you. Then after your grand adventure, throw a surprise birthday barbecue with all of her friends.
