Editorial: A Pancake On Father’s Day

I have never made pancakes. I can admit that. I’ve made steak, cooked beefy orzo, linguini with clam sauce, among other things, but not the circle shaped deliciousness that I prefer as a short stack. However, I will try in preparation for Father’s Day.

My inspiration came from the Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast held by Boy Scout Troop 45. They will hold its annual event on Sunday, June 17 at Knights of Columbus Hall on Jericho Turnpike in Mineola from 7:30 a.m. to noon.

My dad hates when I buy him gifts so this could be the only path I can take. If I can’t buy him a present, I will have to make him one.

I have only cooked for my mother and she said I did okay. Maybe it was a mother’s love that stopped her from being honest.

My dad is a chocolate chip nut, so maybe I’ll try to get fancy and make those type of pancakes…or should I play it safe?

Send me suggestions at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it this week and maybe, just maybe, your pancake recipe will make my father proud…or not, of me.

My dad shoots from the hip and never misses; but in a good way. Will I be successful? Or will I burn the batter? Stay tuned.
