I've been meaning to post about this since Mother's Day....
For Mother's Day I ordered myself a Tastebook with recipes that I chose from this blog. Here are a couple of photos:
It came 'wrapped' with a sticker on the outside with my name on it... aahhh how cute!
Drum roll please.....
I love it! It's so nice to just pull it off the shelf and it have all of my favorite recipes in it! Easy peasy!
When you purchase one you get 100 recipes for the price but I only used like 30 so I can still add more favorite recipes and continue to add them to my book!
Here's the link if you're interested: Tastebook
You can search for our blog recipes if you want to add them to your book. When you get to Tastebook they are under - Do We Have To Eat This.

FYI - I doubled it using 8 eggs and put it in a slightly bigger cake pan. And since I was out of white flour for the lunch batch I used half white/half wheat flour and they turned out great!
This is the link to the recipe that I found: German Pancakes
1/4 c butter
4-6 large eggs
1 c flour
1 c milk
1/4 t salt
Lemon juice, maple syrup, powdered sugar, for toppings
Preheat oven to 400*. Melt butter in 9x13 pan (glass seems to work best) in oven; swirl around so it covers the pan; In a blender add eggs, flour, milk and salt and blend just until mixed... do not overbeat. Pour into pan. Bake 20-30 minutes, until puffy and deep golden brown. Serve at once sprinkled with lemon juice and powdered sugar, or maple syrup or whatever you like on your pancakes.
