Rome report

Rome in just one day 


Our travelling girl, Paulina sends us her report from the capital of fashion, Rome. You can usually count on good weather and to visit everything by foot. Sometimes it seems like you walh through the 16th century, with grandma hanging the clothes out the window and six-year-olds chasing each other across the cobblestones. The 6 things you have to do and taste there..are the following.

1. Have a cappucino in La Licata, with the Colosseo view cappuccino

2.Have a slice of heaven…in Pizzeria Loffredo


3. Make a wish in Fontana di Trevi


4. Ice cream time in Gelateria Grom


5. A proscuitto in Roscioli


6. The Eternal city

cinnamonj oatmeal pancakes


1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

2. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.

3. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until combined. Let pancake mixture sit for at least 20 minutes. You can cover and put the mixture in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours before making the pancakes.

4. When ready to cook, heat a griddle or pan to medium low heat. Coat with cooking spray. Drop about a 1/4 cup of batter onto heated skillet. Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Continue making pancakes until the batter is gone.

5. Serve pancakes with fruit and maple syrup, if desired.

Note-these pancakes freeze well. Let them cool completely and then wrap in plastic wrap and put in a freezer bag. When ready to eat, remove from freezer and reheat in microwave or the toaster.
