Place half a pita bread (or a tortilla) on a griddle, over medium high heat. Layer thinly sliced mango, brie cheese, cilantro, and green onions. Cover with the other half of the pita bread and cook on both sides till the cheese is melted.

One of my favorites.

Banana Pancakes

3 ripe bananas

3 eggs

1 C milk

1.5 T brown sugar

2 t vanilla

1 t lemon juice

2 t baking powder

.5 t salt

2 C flour (I used half Whole Wheat and half Oat)

In a large bowl mash the bananas, then beat in the eggs.  Add the milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice.  In a smaller bowl, mix the dry ingredients.  Add the dry to the wet and stir to combine – don’t over mix.  Drop batter onto a heated, greased skillet.  Flip when small bubbles appear and remove when they stop steaming.

I like to serve these with:

Berry Sauce

3 C frozen berries

1/4 C water

2 T cornstarch powder (mixed in an extra couple teaspoons of water)

2 T honey (or to taste)

Heat the berries and water over medium-medium high heat. Once the berries are defrosted and simmering, stir in the cornstarch mixed with water.  Turn the heat down, stir in the honey and let the sauce thicken.

3 Tbls. Olive oil

4-5 garlic cloves, chopped

51 oz.  canned chopped sea clams (already cooked, ready to use)

2-3 Tbls. chopped dulse

1/4 Cup fresh parsley 

In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil then sauté the garlic until it is soft.  Stir in the  clams (along with their juice), dulse, and parsley and bring to boil.  Simmer on low for 8-10 minutes.  Serve over spaghetti with parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.  

(For the dulse and parsley, I use my kitchen scissors and cut them directly into the saucepan.)
