Something you may not know about me, Lucca. My favorite food is not kibble, or dessert kibble (cereal), or treats, or whatever my mom is having for lunch. My favorite food is PANCAKES. On my birthday every year, my mom makes them for me, but I just discovered there’s a whole other special pancake day and it’s TODAY, National Pancake Day. I think my mom has been hiding the existence of this day from me, which is rude and I’ll deal with her later. For now, though, I present to you 20 pancake recipes that I would totally make in celebration of this momentous occasion, if my paws were able to manage a griddle. Stupid evolution.

Need further convincing to buy one yourself or make use of the one you have? Click through to see just 13 recipes — from breakfast to dessert — that you can cook in a cast iron pan…

We’ve already discussed the merits of chili as a brag-worthy comfort food. I love pretty much all incarnations of chili, as do most well-adjusted people, but some folks out there (ahem, Ami) still insist they don’t like chili. As a chili affirmation therapy exercise, I asked Ami to pick out some nontraditional chili recipes that appealed to her chili-hating tastebuds. Because when it’s this cold and yucky out, no one should be missing out on the comforting deliciousness of a warm bowl of chili. Click through for recipes!
