One of the foodie new year's resolutions I suggested for 2012 was that we all make more pancakes. Pancakes was really just a stand-in for any slightly involved, completely delicious breakfast treat though, the kind of delicacy that can actually make getting out of bed on a lazy weekend morning sound like fun.
And of course we didn't suggest it so we'd all enter 2013 all chubby from eating coffee cake instead of yogurt every morning. If you're a cook, it's fun to spend longer in the kitchen than the time it takes to pour milk over cereal, and a little effort goes a long way in terms of sustenance and time spent hanging out with the people you like on Sunday mornings, whether or not those people are the Car Talk guys who live in your radio. If you're an eater, it's fun to eat egg sandwiches, homemade muffins and warm coffee cake.
