Savory Zucchini Pancakes

These are very simple to make. We eat them as a snack but they would also make a great appetizer. The recipe below is for 2 people.

Om nom nom.

Sexy Nerd has been growing a lot of zucchini in his garden.

Why he wrapped the larger zucchini in plastic is anyone's guess.

 Beat 2 eggs.

Personally, I think photos of beating eggs are fun.


Coarsely grate 1 zucchini. There is no need to peel it.

If you're looking for a review of my Kitchen Aid food processor, just know that I am not a fan. (It leaks!)

Mix 1 cup of zucchini in with your eggs. There is no need to drain any moisture from the zucchini.

Mix in 1/2 a cup of pancake mix. Does it concern me that Sexy Nerd and I go through several of these 10 pound bags a year? A little.

Oooh, drippy.

Mix in a pinch of onion salt, a dash of garlic powder, and a generous sprinkling each of curry powder and italian seasoning. I love curry powder so I tend to add at least a tablespoon. Sexy Nerd, however, is not much of a curry powder fan.

Drop spoonfuls onto a hot, nonstick pan. Cover.

These are set to about medium-low so that the zucchini has time to become tender.

Personally, I like to use my Proctor Silex griddle for things like pancakes.

Ours was a steal at Bed Bath and Beyond because it had a broken leg. It cooks the same, with or without 2 legs!

Check them in a few minutes. They should be ready to flip.

Toward the end of making pancakes, do you ever get impatient and just throw all the remaining batter onto the pan? I do. I'm the same way with cookies.

Really, they taste the exact same and you can always cut them into smaller pancakes after they start cooking.

Like the photo above? Bonus points if you spotted Pica lurking in the shadows.

The perfect snack for Sexy Nerd's painting break!

Kitchen Pig is a fan.

Ta da!

These Amerisleep reviews are NOT a sponsored post. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my Liberty Bed for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.

If you buy through my link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus that I can use toward purchasing other memory foam products for the house we're about to break ground on hopefully any day nowwe're finally building (!!!), so placing your order through my link would be so helpful, especially as we're a bit (a lot!) over budget already.

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?


The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...

6/25/17 Update: The fireplace is stone, but it's ver…
