Wild Blueberry Pancakes

One of the best thing about camping is making breakfast outdoors.  The first morning we were camping in Cape Cod, we kept it simple.  Coffee in a French press while I fried eggs and bacon.  Thick cut maple smoked bacon from the butcher counter at Whole Foods.  It was the best.

But on our bike ride we picked some wild blueberries and I knew that they would go in my favourite pancake recipe.  I received this recipe on a recipe swap and it is just the best recipe for no fail light and fluffy pancakes.

Cooking up pancakes.

NOTE: For camping I had measured the dry ingredients into a container. At the site, I just had to whisk the egg and milk (preferably in a pourable container) and add the premixed pre-measured dry ingredients.



Lucky's Truck ▪ Around Montréal

This summer has been really good for Montréal and its food trucks at the multiple festivals but we're still hoping that the laws will change soon and allow trucks to hawk their food all the time.  I had a chance to check out Lucky's Truck at the Omnivore Festival.  While the website advertised four food trucks would be present, only Lucky's and Nouveau Palais were there.  Since I wasn't in the mood for a burger I opted for the duck confit poutine and I was not disappointed.


At 9$, the portion was small, but the duck was moist and well seasoned, the fries were perfectly crisp and held up well to the rich gravy and cheese curds.  I'm not sure where the curds are from but they were not my favourite. As a whole dish it was excellent, a must try!
