The thing about food blogging is no one gets to eat until you’re done with your photos. And of course that was the case this morning when I made these Ricotta Cornmeal Pancakes. I mean trust me, I get annoyed too when I have to reheat my food after a “photoshoot”–and I REALLY get lost in the moment.
So all this morning I had to hear my hubby’s mouth about not getting to eat a hot breakfast, and that “they are getting cold”, and by the time I asked him to hold my camera while I fixed my setup he was BEYOND annoyed (although he helped me out anyway). I’m saying all this to say that food blogging ain’t easy–between ticked off husband’s, cold food, recipe mistakes, and hungry insects–most people just don’t get it. But I know you get it (rant over). Anyway let’s talk pancakes!
One of my favorite breakfast spots in ATL serves ricotta cheese pancakes. I’ve been eating there every weekend, and I have no clue how they make them, but they are always SO light. I love them. This morning I wanted to make ricotta pancakes myself, yet with cornmeal mix and that’s exactly what I did. The results? Very good, not so light because cornmeal is a bit heavy, but delicious anyway. They are a tad bit grainy but in a good way as I LOVE cornbread and it’s grainy texture. My dry mix consisted of cornmeal, salt, flour, baking powder, and a little buckwheat pancake mix. The Ricotta in this is noticeable, but not overbearing. Please enjoy!

Over the past few weeks I have come to realize that I need a lotta help with WholeYum.com. I need help with posting recipes, articles, and there isn’t enough time in the day to accomplish all that I want for the site! The site is growing, and I want to add a passionate health junkie and food blogger to the team to work with me! Let’s push this thing to the next level! I am seeking someone who is health conscious but not crazed, loves to cook, is personable and friendly, loves to write about food, health, and fitness, has an open mind, has photography skills (and a dslr), and a good sense of humor. Wow, this sounds like a match.com profile… 🙂 I would prefer to work with someone who is interested in growing in this position–maybe a potential partner for the site.
Is there pay? Yes, you will always get a percentage (half for partners) of the earnings for this site as long as you work this position. There will be other incentives as well! Also the larger and faster we grow the more you will ultimately make! I’m thinking Huffington Post status for 2014! Are you dreaming with me?
More on Writing:
I am seeking someone with good writing and grammar skills, but one who can include personality, style, and humor in their writing. Nothing fancy, but informative, (again) personable, and friendly posts! Also someone who doesn’t mind posting delicious, healthy, and unique recipes specifically for WholeYum.
More on Photos:
Good photography skills are needed. Creativity appreciated 🙂
