Sunday Social ~ June 1, 2014

1. Introduce yourself and your blog to us:

Hello all! Waving from hot Las Vegas! My name is Rona and this is my blog, BerryMorins Bits and Tips! As my profile states, I'm a wife, mom, Christian and a chronic pain and depression sufferer. I love taking care of my home, feeding people and loving my hubby of 18 years marriage, 20 yrs living together and 27 years in love!

I'm getting used to having a semi-empty nest now that our son, attends college and is in his 20's. (living that single life)

2. What is your favorite form of Social Media and why?

I just love Twitter because it brings so many things into my life. I've discovered Twitter parties, fellow chronic pain sufferers, and loads of interesting people and brands! It's a source of learning, entertainment and fun for me! Here's my primary Twitter handle @berrymorin! Come join me!

3. What made you start a blog?

I was following other homeschool bloggers and thought, "I would like to do that"! And so it began! That was in 2005!

4. What do you feel the most meaningful/special post you’ve written is?

It was when I've shared my experience with Major Depression and a suicide attempt. It's important for me to talk about it, for myself. For years, I allowed the stigma to keep me from accepting the diagnosis and getting proper treatment.

I'm glad that you are able to share your story! I will have to read more about because I have dealt with depression and it can be a very isolating feeling.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
