the best pancakes
via somewhat simple

(to make 8 pancakes)

1-1/3 cup all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar (i used 1/3)
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk (i used unsweetened coconut)
2 tbsp oil


1. mix all dry ingredients in a bowl

2. mix all wet ingredients in a separate bowl (egg, milk, oil)

3. pour wet ingredients into the dry and be careful not to over mix

4. bake on griddle/stove top until brown on both sides



accompany is a beautifully curated boutique filled with unique items meeting the standard of at least one of these three key areas : artisan made, fair trade, and/or philanthropic (read more about their mission here and here) so you bet i was extra excited when i found out i won the little white whale/$200 accompany gift card giveaway!!! (ahh!!)

it took me a while to decide what i wanted (there are just so many things!), but once i made my selection the goodies arrived extra fast..


i was surprised to receive my package early and i couldn’t help but peek inside even before i made it home (it was delivered to my office)! i was happy to find my goodies came with a card and a sample of argan oil too – sweet!


and of course the first thing i did when i got home was open the rest .. as part of the giveaway, i selected the lapis sadik cuff  (above) and the lilac swatches tunic dress (below).


and i’m loving both!

thank you, thank you, little white whale & accompany!
