    Dang you Jimmy, you beat me to the punch! I saw this on the NPR page and was blown away. So much so that I used AudioHijacker to make MP3’s of the streaming audio. And holy crap, watch the video. She’s absolutely awsome… her technique is unlike any I ever seen.

    On a random note TyTy… I finally got around to making sourdough pancakes this weekend. Whoah they were uber yummy. What a trip they are to make! I followed Stu’s instructions and mixed the baking soda and water seperately, then I dumped it in and watched her explode into activity. That’s almost as much fun as making sand volcanos in the sandbox with baking soda and vinegar.

    I had no idea that the baking soda and yeast would be so incredibly active. Man, I don’t think I’ve ever made such fluffy pancakes!

    Interesting. You must have had a far more actice started than I… when I made them, they were really good, but not very fluffy. Kinda flat, actually.

    You might find interest in this recipe from a friend of mine…

    Sarah’s Tasty Oatmeal Leisure Cakes.

    Tasty Leisurecakes:

    1/2 cup old fashioned oats

    2 eggs or 4 egg whites

    1/2 container of yogurt / or about 1/3 cup milk / or cottage cheese (basically some dairy to give it something special. I prefer vanilla yogurt.)

    1/2 banana / cooked sweet potato / or a few extra-big spoonfuls of canned pumpkin (yum)

    cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar or splenda to taste

    _(Makes one big cake.)_

    Put it all in a blender and blend to make a nice pancake batter. Cook this big, beautiful pancake on medium for about 5+ minutes, until edges are bubbly and flip and cook for another couple minutes. Top with the rest of the yogurt or peanut butter and jelly :) or honey or whatever you like. If you’re feeling extra saucy, you could top off the banana cakes with some dark chocolate shavings.

    Chef’s note: I normally put the 1/2 cup oats in a bowl, then sort of just pour in some egg whites (the carton is the best invention) and put the yogurt in until the consistency looks about right. Then I put it in the blender and add the banana. Experiment till you love it. They are good for dinner too!

    Tyler here again… I like these cause they’re easy, good for you, and you don’t really need the recipe. Just as long as you understand the basic proportions of everything, and you know how to cook pancakes. Sarah says to blend it in a blender, but I forgot that step the first time I made these and they were fine. Had more of a French toast consistency than pancake.

    dude, did any of you guys listen to the interview on this chick? She’s 25. That’s how old we are! It makes me think: what the hell have I been doing with my life?

    Thank you TyTy for this very very cool link.

  10. TyTy responds with:

    Yeah… I sometimes think back to my high school guitar playing, and how rapidly I seemed to be learning the instrument. Then I went to college and still played, but started to focus on the bass. But since Splice, I haven’t played music with anyone. I still toodle on the guitar by myself, but I haven’t really advanced my abilities much since high school. I wonder how much better I’d be if I really applied myself and focused on the guitar.

    Oh well. Woulda coulda shoulda.

  11. Future mother of your children responds with:

    Just a quick note to remind everyone how very much I love Harpoon’s Winter Warmer. While I’m at it, I should mention that I just discovered Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome, from England. It’s only sold by the bottle, and it’s quite lovely. And if you hadn’t guessed, I’ve had a couple. So on that note, I love you all. Very much. So much in fact, that I want to have all of your children. Simultaeously.

    It could happen! Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving! This’ll be my first Thanksgiving without the family. I figured I need to stay home with the fiance this year. I’ll be home around New Year’s, although it hasn’t been decided where I’ll be on the actual New Year’s Eve. I’ll catch you up. Eat, drink good beer, and be merry! Love Ty.
