Daily Newsletter for Sunday, January 8, 2017
Dear Almanac readers,
Sundays are made for pancakes—a great way to start a winter's day. Homemade pancakes from scratch are so simple, and we have a master buttermilk recipe—as well as delicious add-ins.
After the holiday season, perhaps you wish to lighten your menu—with easy meals. We've put together our best chicken recipes for dinner and hearty salad recipes. See if any make your "go-to" dinner plans this month.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy New Year!

With eyes that keenly glow– A frost-mailed warrior striding
