How would you rate your skill level in the kitchen?  While I consider myself to be proficient overall, there are still tons of things I'd like to perfect, especially when it comes to baking.  Nielsen-Massey's Better Your Bake tip series is a great educational tool, walking you through various techniques and then giving a selection of recipes to choose from to test out what you've learned.

The first tip is how to separate eggs and how to properly whisk eggs.  The recipe I chose to showcase my whisking technique is the Honey Vanilla Pancakes. Look how light and fluffy they turned out!  I used the Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract, and served them with blueberries from our new bushes.

Tip #2 focuses on how to brown butter, and the Browned Butter Cereal Treats are calling my name.  Browned butter is amazing in both sweet and savory applications, giving food a "nutty" flavor.  

 Tip #3 is how to roll out cookie dough.  That's something that I've always struggled with, and I'm looking forward to practicing and then making the Berry Swirl Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Nielsen-Massey would love to see your creations, and so would I!  Share pics using #BetterYourBake on Instagram, and be sure to follow the hashtag to see what others are making!

Honey Vanilla Pancakes

Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, plus more for buttering the skillet and topping the pancakes
  • 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Ugandan Pure Vanilla Extract


How to cook Honey Vanilla Pancakes

  1. In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; whisk to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk two eggs until the yolks and whites are blended.
  3. In a separate, small microwave-safe bowl, add honey and heat in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Add the whisked eggs, honey, buttermilk, melted butter and Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanilla Extract; whisk to combine. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until just combined.
  4. Preheat a skillet or pancake griddle over medium heat. Coat with 1/2 tablespoon of butter and let it melt for a minute or two. Use a ladle or measuring cup to scoop about ¼ cup of batter into the pan. For larger pancakes, ladle 1/2 cup. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side, or until each side is golden brown. Lower the heat if necessary. Repeat this step with the rest of the batter and add more butter as needed to coat the pan.
  5. Garnish with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
Whisking the eggs prior to incorporating with your other wet ingredients ensures the eggs will mix evenly with the dry ingredients. Learn how to properly whisk eggs here

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
