RED VELVET PANCAKES – 7 DAYS OF RED VELVET

I’m listening to James Ingram as I write up this post. I love classic music escape especially the 80’s and 90’s R&B. The music was timeless, evoking emotions that you never knew you had. His songs remind me of being in love, puppy love. When you thought a certain boy was your world and the very essence of your being was him existing. I chuckle at the memories but I miss such kind of love, filled with innocence, pure bliss and devotion to being each other’s only admiration. Love has changed, I think, it has become to some extent selfish, indulgence and “me me me” kind of expectations. Even R&B of nowadays is filled with too much vulgar language, swear words that you wonder are you being serenaded or being insulted? I did not mean to rant, I promise, maybe its all these memories bubbling to the top. Now back to reality, food reality. Today is the first of my 7 Days of Red Velvet series and what better way to start it off than with the most delicious, perfect and romantic breakfast of all time, pancakes! Red velvet pancakes! Wake him/her to the smell of this delicious treat and you will be on your way to having a perfect morning and the perfect rest of the day. Shall we?
