Coffee, Pancakes, and a lil' bit of News: Highlights from this Morning's Show

Costly Coffee: (Article)
Would you pay $23.60 for your morning java?  Yeah, me neither.  Technically, Logan Warren didn't either, but that was the grand total of his bill before his free drink coupon kicked in.  This expensive concoction consisted of 31oz of crazy and 1,400 mg of caffeine.

Here's what he ordered:
31oz Java Chip Frappucino: $4.75
16 shots of espresso: $12.00
1 shot of soy milk: .60
1 drop of caramel flavoring: .50
1 scoop of banana puree: $1.00
1 scoop of strawberry puree: .60
Vanilla beans: .50
Matcha Powder: .75
Protein Powder: .50
Caramel & Mocha Drizzle: .60

The verdict: "Tolerable," according to Warren, "but not good. Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie that will put you in the hospital if you drink it all." 

The Big Flip: (Article Link)
890 students helped to break a Guinness Book World Record today by successfully and simultaneously flipping pancakes for 30 seconds.  The event has lovingly been dubbed, "The Big Flip."  It looks like they had a great time.

While I was recovering from gallbladder surgery, I saw someone on t.v. making a puffed pancake called a dutch baby.  It looked so incredible, I vowed to make it after I recovered.  So, to practice your own pancake flipping skills, I've posted a few recipes that look super yummy.  Of course, I included the recipe for the dutch baby, and I even included a healthy option!
