A Dull Knife is a Dangerous Knife!

A lot of the home cooks I know have something very dangerous in their kitchen drawer, a dull knife. For some it is out of fear of cutting themselves with a sharp blade. They mistakenly think that it’s easier to get a nasty cut from a sharp blade.

Everybody (except my 11 year old son) loves pancakes, but nobody seems to know how to make them so that they come out looking like they do on billboards and TV commercials.
