Carrot Basil

Author Notes: I had an idea to make a crisp pancake. My first mistake was to start cooking with no experience in making pancakes! As I looked into the pan as it cooked, I knew I wouldn't be having anything close to a pancake. But surprisingly, I loved this flavor and texture combination I ended up with...another lesson in being open to whatever happens!CafeAnna
