Ashley Lately

1. What is your favorite genre of music?

Oh my. That's a hard question but I really do enjoy listening to Old School R&B. Bobby Brown, Rick James, Cameo! Brings me back to the days in The Club!

2. What is your favorite genre of movies?

These days, I really love action movies. I just want to be entertained, see some amazing CGI and escape for a bit!

3. Do you watch reality TV? If so what was the first show you remember watching?

No, I finally have ended my relationship with reality TV. I find it extremely boring, repetitive and setup.

4. Who is an actress you’d want to be BFF’s with?

I would love to hang out with Judi Dench, Diahann Carroll and Helen Mirren for a few days. They look like they know how to have a good time!

5. Who is an actor you’d be happy to be stuck on an island with?

Mmm...well, my husband acts like he's really interested when I talk about nail polish colors so I'm going to pick him!

I think there'd never be a dull moment with Helen Mirren. She seems like such a classy lady...full of interesting stories.
Teena,
I know what you mean. It's definitely difficult to give them up.

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 …
