  1. This pancake sounds great! I do find it funny that you add chicken MSG. I can just imagine many bloggers frowning upon reading that. But me? I could care less, I don’t think it’s bad at all, and it makes things tastes amazing.

    When I was young I ate a lot of cereal and french toast. On weekends my mom make chocolate chip pancakes a lot too.

    wonder if i can make that gluten free? don’t know how the texture will hold up. as a kid, i ate cereal with fruit on top or oatmeal. my parents would sometimes make me cream of wheat and i hated it! now i eat breakfast salads, flax porridge, eggs or pancakes πŸ™‚

    that looks very similar to korean pancakes!

  4. That pancake looks delicious. I was a cereal kid-always eating cereal. But the one thing my Grandma used to make that I LOVED was french toast! Yum!

    Wow, that dinner looks amazing! How much time did you spent in the kitchen to make all those dishes? And how did you manage that they were all hot when served? (You don’t have 9 cooking plates, do you?)

    Btw I love that you’re doing tutorials for real Chinese cooking on here!

    Childhood breakfast usually was either a slice of dark rye bread with butter and honey or jam, or a bowl of oats or cereal. I’ve never liked to have breakfast early, though, I’m not a morning person and usually need at least 2 hours after getting up until the thought of eating something becomes comfortable.

  6. Great tutorial! My mom used to make me Cream of Wheat every morning for breakfast with maple syrup.

    Thank you so much for the tutorial! I am already planning to make it. Wow, what an amazing feast. You are a very good cook, I’m glad I can learn from reading your blog πŸ™‚

  8. That Chinese pancake looks delish! I love the scallion in there for flavor. As a kid I used to love oatmeal for breakfast…and I still do! πŸ™‚

  9. My typical breakfast was sweet potato and kimchi. But usually, I skipped breakfst. I was a bad person, hating breakfast. hee.

    Yay! I love these pancakes because they freeze so well, too.

  10. What a great feast! You must spend hours in the kitchen making it all! The pancake sounds so easy to prepare. I’d like to try it out, but for dinner. As a kid we usually ate soft boiled eggs with toast at breakfast time…

    I always had cereal with milk – so your breakfast looks a whole lot more exciting than mine ever did! πŸ™‚

    i grew up eating cereal + milk for breakfast pretty much every morning. i used to hate oatmeal!

    Hi, I made this today for breakfast. It was very tasty! I cooked for 6min on the first side and 4min on the second side. It is a little hard for me to flip and still a little undercooked in the middle, so next time I think I will make 2 smaller pancakes. I will definitely make it again!
