Winning Recipe: Jalapeno-Cornmeal Pancakes

We thought we'd had our fill of pancakes after completing this month's bonus booklet, 50 Pancakes and Waffles. But then Bonnie Stallings of Martinsburg, WV, entered these jalapeno-cornmeal pancakes in our January/February 2010 chile pepper recipe contest, and we found ourselves hungry for one more batch. Bonnie transformed her 30-year-old recipe for Mexican cornbread into this sweet-and-spicy breakfast with a double dose of jalapenos: She puts them in the batter and in the orange syrup. "Depending on how hot you like it, you can always add more!" she says.

Summer Fest: A Day of Potato Recipes

Potatoes definitely weren't my favorite veggie as a kid. Give me a pile of mashed potatoes, and I was just in it for the gravy. I turned my nose up at baked potatoes, and forget about French fries. Now that I'm older (and a little wiser) I see what all the fuss is about: Besides being delicious, versatile and cheap, potatoes are packed with nutrients and fiber. Sure, they're good fried and mashed, but spuds have more to offer. Here's how to eat potatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Using a batter-filled squeeze bottle, Smith drew the outline of each face and let the lines cook slightly, then filled in the gaps with more batter. The outlines cooked longer, so they were darker than the rest of the pancake.
