Sunday Social ~ The Final Edition

Per the hosts of Sunday Social, this one is the end. They will be launching a new linky party in November. It's been lots of fun participating in Sunday Social. I hope you have enjoyed it as well.

Now, onto this week's final Sunday Social Q and A!

How did you come up with your blog name?

Not a lot of creativity in creating the name of my blog. I knew I wanted to incorporate my last name because it's unique. Also my blog would be about lots different interests of mine, hence bits and tips came to mind. So now you know how I came up with BerryMorins Bits and Tips.

What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now cant live without?

If I can only mention one thing that would be PicMonkey! I just love it!~I first read about it on 5 Minutes for Mom, clicked on the links and the rest is history!

Facebook or Twitter? and why?

I totally love Twitter because of the great benefits it has brought into my life. I've been able to appear on various HuffPost Live segments, speak with celebrities, experts and fellow chronic illness sufferers has truly broaden my horizons and opened up my heart.

Reach out to our favorite brands, TV shows, home cooks and chefs with my questions and comments has been lots of fun. And many times, I do get a response. Love that!

Oh, I can't forget discovering Twitter Parties! Great opportunities to network, learn about new products and services and occasionally win a prize or two!

And I can't say enough about the friends I've made on Twitter. A few of us even chat on Skype or Google Hangout a few times a month.

And of course, one of the highlights of the year, was when I got to meet Sherry Lee Meredith, host of Go Curvy, when she was in Las Vegas, for the 40 Plus Diva Fashion Show this August! And appear on The Red Carpet!

Yes, Twitter rocks!


Hi Rona-

During Sunday Socials break, we’d like to invite you to Sunday Stealing. It’s a great meme (or survey if you prefer) and was started in 2008 and has a great lineup of players. Check it out for yourself. You can even play today if you are up to the challenge!

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 …
