Pancake recipe to die for!

This morning I decided I'd make some company that I had over for the holiday some pancakes from scratch. I found this recipe off Food Network online, and it is absolutely amazing! The pancakes come out all nice and fluffy and not too many ingredients are needed to be incorporated.

Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 cups of flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 large eggs, room temp.
1 1/4 cup of milk, room temp.
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
mini chocolate chips

1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and nutmeg.
2. Then in a smaller bowl beat the eggs, then toss in the milk and vanilla. After this put in the butter.
3. Whisk the dry ingredients to the milk mixture then fold in the chocolate chips (however many you want) I put about a 1/2 cup.
4. Then you're ready to bake!

Oh My!

The direction I'd like to take with this is being Bree in everyday life. Not the stickler part, but the '50s housewife motif that she puts on in every episode of Desperate Housewives. The cooking every meal from scratch, cleaning everything in her home until it's spotless, and making sure your house has proper decor and is always tidy in case someone unexpectedly stops by! Oh the life of a redhead!
