Growing up, my mom would use the same batter for pancakes and for waffles, so I thought I'd give it a shot with my buttermilk pancakes recipe. I only made a few tweaks, and I think these turned out lovely. They're slightly tart from the buttermilk, definitely buttery, and not on the sweet side so they're ready for loads of toppings! Serve them however you like; for me, I take them with a big slab of salted butter, fresh strawberries, and plenty of maple syrup.

Have you ever wondered what pop stars eat and who actually cooks for them? Bon Appétit recently interviewed Debbie Solomon, personal chef of Rihanna, and asked her everything from how she landed the job to the diverse foods she makes for the pop star. The Jamaican-born chef cooks for the singer on tour, at home, for parties, and for everything in between. Chef Solomon said Rihanna is "a moody eater" and craves specific foods every day, so she doesn't plan weekly menus and cooks on the fly. Rihanna eats "every protein that you can think of" along with "vegetables, rice, and pasta." Though you'd think Rihanna might eat rabbit food, the dishes Solomon has prepared for her look otherwise! "There shouldn't be shame in eating food . . . I won't waste my calories on bullsh*t," Solomon told Bon Appétit. Read the full, intriguing interview, and take a look at these mouthwatering dishes Solomon has prepared for Rihanna!

Nothing screams childhood like a heaping bowl of colorful Froot Loops, and it looks like our go-to rainbow cereal is getting an exciting (and even sweeter!) upgrade. Kellogg's is apparently releasing a birthday cake flavor, and we can hardly keep our sh*t together because this is basically the flavor of our dreams. The crunchy O-shaped cereal bits appear to be pink rather than the usual array of colors, which means one thing and one thing only: pink cereal milk!
This flavor will only be available in Canada to celebrate the country's 150th birthday this Summer - what a bummer! Though Kellogg's hasn't officially confirmed this announcement yet, we may or may not already be planning a Summer road trip to Canada so we can get our hands (and spoons) on this tasty breakfast treat.

On Lidey's Instagram, she wrote, "Had a blast filming with Ina today and got to work on my chevron skills! (getting there!!)" Though no official press releases have been posted by the Food Network, we've reached out for more details. As Ina says, "Stay tuned!"
