Review: Sweet Potato Pancakes

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was sweet Potato Pancakes from Cracker Barrel.


I was on my way to check out a movie on a Sunday afternoon and I decided to stop into Cracker Barrel for some grub. I originally wanted the Uncle Herschel's Favorite which is my go-to dish there because of its collection of eggs, hash brown casserole and catfish. A special menu item caught my eye. It was Sweet Potato Pancakes. I have never had them before so I decided to try them out.


 They were delicious. I am not really a pancake person. I will typically go for French Toast or a Waffle before I choose pancakes. Nothing against them but they can often be poorly done or taste processed. These pancakes were very tasty. It was like a combination of sweet potato pie and cake. The pancakes were a little dense but had a fluffiness to the, They tasted almost creamy in texture. There was a cinnamon butter on the top that was a little sweet for my taste. I mistakenly slathered it on the pancakes like I would regular butter and I regretted it soon after.



One reason I am usually hesitant to order pancakes is because they are usually too big and dense and I never finish them. This time was no exception. I had to tap out after the second pancake in the stack (of three) It helped that the last pancake was burnt so it tasted wrong. The other cakes were a delight so I overlooked the bitter char on the last one.

Overall I would give the cakes a solid 3 out of 5.

They were tasty but incomplete. I would like less of the sugary butter and maybe a more consistent presentation. I am not expecting much from a cracker barrel but it exceeded my expectations.

Recipe: Sweet Rice

Today's recipe was a family staple sweet rice,
Most people would call this rice pudding. Its about the same, but we tend to eat it warm, where others may eat it cold. We also consider it to be a useful addition to any meal, be it as a side dish or a breakfast. The recipe is pretty easy, so I suggest you try it for yourself.

Review: Lemon Ricotta Pancakes at Cheesecake Factory

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the French Toast Napoleon from the Cheesecake Factory

Today the wife and I decided to hit up the Cheesecake factory for brunch. We have eaten there once before for breakfast but that was so long ago that I did not have a clear memory of why we had never returned. A friend of ours really likes eating at the establishment and it had been forever since we ventured that way. The restaurant was of course packed to the gills but we discovered the secret of the bar area where, if you can grab a table, you can jump the line and get seated faster.

Sunday Brunch at Annabel's

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Annabelle’s Today the wife and I decided to try someplace close and new, mostly because we got a late start today. We ended up at a nice little place called Annabelle’s where the wait was long but service was wonderful and the food was delicious. Overall it set the standard for one of our best breakfast experiences so far.
