I'm betting its because us old folks on the boards don't use chat room language on message boards. Right Drama Queen?

Incredigirl, we all understand it fine, and many of us "old farts" use it when we are IMing too. You can use it if you like, just be aware that some people may be annoyed with it and not read your post (and therefore not answer). Its not a biggie at all. It gives a clue to your age group too!

Just curious. As I said, your chat room type abbreviations gave me a clue that you are young. Welcome to the fine world of cooking and one of the best "chat rooms' on the internet. And BTW I understand what you're writing. But Alix is right , we don't use that type of language on this site so you might lose those that can't understand. .

I text faster with my thumbs than most people type with all their fingers. So yeah, Ihrya. :D

Oh...Re pancakes - don't squash them down after you cook the first side. The first side will be beautiful and the second side will look like swiss cheese - this is fine. Use a nice flavorful recipe. Avoid boxed mixes if you can. Anything from scratch beats them.

As long as the chatroom abbreviations don't threaten to overtake the rest of a sentence, I'm fine. Just hope we avoid things like "idk my bff jill?"

And now that you've created simple pancakes, consider the more advanced Pankeggs!

Noooooo..... Eggs in the slices of toast like Olympia Dukakis did on Moonstruck!

What would you serve on those pankeggs? Syrup? Hot sauce??

Hahahaha....well, I cover the eggie-in-a-basket in that entry, too, but I do prefer the Pankegg.

As for what to top it with, if you cook it right you shouldn't need to top it with anything--the butter, oil, and egg yolk will give it plenty of flavor, and the "oozy oozy middle" will moisturize. :)
