Time for Baking Bonanza Part 2: Flax Pancakes. (And for those of you thinking that you have to have an oven to bake, please note that Dictionary.com defines baking as “to cook by dry heat in an oven or on heated metal or stone.”) I made these for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. We needed a special treat for the holiday since we ate in the living room and watched the Macy’s Parade, but I wanted something kind of healthy since we were going to indulge later in the day. These are pretty good—I was afraid they would be kind of chalky, but they’re tender and have great flavor. They’re not really sweet, which was nice, too.

This week was a great week- mostly because I wrapped up work travel for awhile. That leaves me with free time to start my weekly tradition of trying at least one new recipe. This week’s pick is Chicken Adobo from the January 2011 issue of Cook’s Country. It really is a great magazine filled with great tips and fantastic recipes.
Chicken Adobo is simple, inexpensive, and spicy! The flavor has a lot of layers as a result of the molasses and instant coffee, and the use of chicken thighs instead of white-meat chicken.

This is really yummy-what makes it so good is you mix cranberry sauce into the stuffing, and the stuffing is put on top of the chicken, so it gets crispy and brown on top. Mmm, mmm, mmm!!! (And you can justify eating all that stuffing becuase it's made with lean meat and has antioxidant rich cranberry sauce).
