Ahmad Rashads Banana Pancakes
3 ts Baking powder
2 tb Vegetable oil
According to NBC sportscaster Ahmad Rashad, men and women behave very
differently in the kitchen. "When men cook, it usually looks like a
disaster area," says the former Minnesota Viking. "And theres no
rhyme or reason to what they make. My father sometimes cooked chicken
for breakfast. And when he cooked, everything came out six times
bigger than when Mom cooked."
Rashads father prepared banana pancakes for him when he was a little
boy, back in Tacoma, Washington. Washad, in turn, makes them for his
5-year-old daughter, Condola Phylea. On Super Bowl Sunday, he
promises, shell be starting off her day with a short stack.
