Holland in Bellingham

Saturday's around 3105 Vallette St. are leisurely. I'm an early riser, usually up by 7 am at the latest. Coffee is brewed, paper retrieved from the front lawn and my current book is placed within arm's reach. Later....much, much later....Wally greets the day! :) Usually I've already had my breakfast, but this Saturday I decided to whip up a recipe that I wanted to try from my newest favorite book, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes From My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg, author of the wildly popular "Orangette" blog. Each story is centered around a special recipe. The stories are entertaining and the recipes are mouth-watering. I just had to try this one: Dutch Baby Pancakes. How can you resist with a name like that? It was easy to make and over-the-top fun in its presentation. Traditionally it's served just with a dusting of powdered sugar, but I added the fresh blueberries. This was fun on every level and will be repeated often!
How in the world did this ever fall under the jurisdiction of "pancake"? Looks like a bowl, acts like a bowl, fills up like a bowl!
