I wanted to make a special Valentines Breakfast for my family. So I went on the hunt for an EASY recipe. I knew I wanted Red Velvet, but didn’t want to make a whole “from scratch” thing. This was the perfect recipe!

They are made using a box Red Velvet cake. They were SO fluffy, moist and delicious! I was going to top them with a regular cream cheese drizzle, but decided to amp it up with a Nutella. SO DELICIOUS!! And the perfect Valentines treat for the family! Next time you want to show your family that you really love them…make these:)
Red Velvet Pancakes:

1 1/4 cups flour
2 cups red velvet cake mix
1 T sugar
3/4 t baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1-2 cups milk (I used closer to 2)

Whisk together all ingredients except for 1 cup milk.
Add remaining milk 1/4 cup at a time until you’ve reached your desired “pancake consistency” (thinner batter for thinner pancakes, thicker batter for thicker pancakes.)
Pour pancake batter 1/4 cup at a time onto a preheated (about 300º) and buttered griddle or skillet.
When bubbles form on top, flip and cook for another minute or two on the other side.

Nutella Cream Cheese Drizzle:

1 t vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
4 T Nutella
4 T cream cheese
milk as needed

Put cream cheese and Nutella in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds to soften. Once you can stir with a spoon (it will be thick), add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add milk little by little while whisking until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Drizzle over pancakes. You don’t need a lot. Now ENJOY your special day!!!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
