Carrot Pancake Muffins with Roasted Strawberries

So sometimes I go in the kitchen and just make something, and sometimes I get ideas for dishes and let them sit in my brain for awhile before I actually decide to try and make it.

I'm ashamed to admit that the reasoning for this is I'm just too damn lazy in the morning to make pancakes. I just want to drink coffee, pet my cat, read my emails, write down my dreams, and you can't really do that when you're standing at a range top making one 4inch pancake at a time.

Beet Greens and Mushroom Soup

Even better than a beet's roots are its greens, because they rank among the five top-rated sources of three antiaging pigment antioxidants: (1) the flavonoids, which produce "vitamin P" activity for strengthening the immune system (which becomes more vulnerable with age) as well as the joint structures and vascular system; (2) the alpha and beta anticancer carotenes; and (3) chlorophyll, the fat soluble substance that stimulates hemoglobin and red blood cell production (and is useful in relieving heavy menstrual flow) and provides protection from free radical threats to the immune system.

Because beet greens contain calcium, potassium, iron, and vitamins A and C, they are an essential addition to any healthy-heart program.
