Blog Updates!

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve finally updated my “Blogs I Read” page.  I think I’ve included everyone, but if you asked me to list your blog and I forgot somehow (or if you’ve got a pertinent blog that you think belongs on the list), please let me know!  .

And if my blog appears on your blogroll, I’d really appreciate if you updated my blog address as well! (the new URL is http://dietdessertndogs.com).  🙂

  • I think I remembered to update the URL to your site, but I’ll check to be sure. since I’m a bit loco en el coco these days…


  • heads-up: several sites don’t work when you click on them, in your list.


  • What a long list – must spend some time finding new blogs there – and thanks for the reminder about changing links to you on my blog – I had changed it on my blogreader but not on blog!


  • Thanks for the mention. You just filled my Sunday with a ton of new blogs to read. 😉 Great stuff!


  • THANKS, Celine! I’ve made the corrections (was really tired when I put up those links. . ). 🙂 If anyone sees a link that doesn’t work, please let me know and I’ll fix it asap!


  • I was clicking through the list, visiting lots of amazing blogs, when I decided to check my link — and it didn’t work! What a huge job it must have been to include all those links.


  • Andrea,

    Yikes! I was sure I’d caught them all. I just went back and fixed it (and checked to be sure it works). So sorry–and thanks for letting me know!

    Hi Ricki,

    I tried making your Almond Pancakes and they didn’t turn out. I had to throw them out they were so bad. What did I do wrong?! The batter was pretty thick so I added a bit of water, they were just a big flax gel mess on the plate. Could it be because I added extra water? Also they were a bit puffy when I first put them on the pan, but after a while they deflated. Any suggestions?


  • Thanks for including me, Ricki, and I’ve updated your site on my blog.


  • Jessica,
    I’m so sorry the pancakes didn’t work out! I can think of a couple of things (though since I didn’t see the batter you used, I can’t guarantee that I’m right).

    The pancakes are usually still a bit moist inside, even when they’re cooked. I always make them small and spread the batter quite thin so they will cook more evenly and become a bit dryer. I agree that the extra water may have created a moister texture as well.

    I think it also depends on how finely ground the almond meal is when you use it–the finer the meal, the less likely the pancakes will be too wet. If the first pancake comes out a little too moist, I might add a tablespoon or so of extra flour to the mix–you might see if that helps. It also helps to let the wet ingredients (including the
    flax) sit for a few minutes before stirring in the rest of the ingredients, so that they can absorb some of the excess moisture.

    The pancakes don’t usually come out very puffy (if you look at my photo, you’ll see they’re not that high), but mine do hold together and can be picked up like a piece of bread once they’re cold. I find that they do dry out a bit by the next day, if you keep them wrapped in the refrigerator. I’ve been using them for sandwiches the second day.

    I would guess that you didn’t do anything wrong, but that it’s just the usual variations that happen with recipes from one cook to another, one kitchen to another, one set of pans and measuring spoons, etc. I’ve had this happen with recipes from acclaimed or famous cookbooks–I try a recipe and it doesn’t seem to work for me, even though I know people who swear by it. Even the humidity in the air
    can affect a recipe.

    I don’t know if you’d want to try them again, but if you do, you might try letting the batter sit first and adding a bit of extra flour if the first pancake is too moist. (But maybe you’d want to do only half a recipe, in case you’re not happy with the results again–!).

    Thanks for letting me know about this. I’ve made these a couple of times already and will be making some more this week, so I will let you know if I encounter any of the same problems. I’d be interested to know other peoples’ experiences, too.


  • Looking at your list I had NO idea how many great vegan blogs existed. What an amazing resource!


  • if you ever learn how to avoid doing stuff when beyond tired, teach me? we should know better. how is life treating you these days, Ricki?


  • Sue

    Hey Ricki, thanks for adding me to your blog list. Just to hang off the end of the pancake train, I must say that I have had some fantastic experiences with vegan pancakes… and then the next week I’ll do the same recipe and I end up with soggy lumps and wanting to slit my wrists with the waste of ingredients and effort! Pancakes must be like mood receptors… freaky little things 🙂


  • Ooo thanks for the reminder I just updated your link! 😉
