Make these pancakes ahead of time and reheat in your toaster or an oven at low heat. This success tip makes pancakes doable on a busy weekday morning.
For pancakes, in large bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugar. In medium bowl, beat eggs until uniform; beat in milk and oil. Add liquid to dry mixture, whisking until fully combined. Reserve.
For compote, in medium saucepan, combine strawberries, star anise, lemon zest, and vanilla. Cook over medium-low, until strawberries have broken down and mixture is fragrant. Reserve.
In large cast iron skillet over medium-high, add a touch of coconut oil, swirling to coat bottom. Add pancake batter, 2 to 3 Tbsp (30 to 45 mL) at a time. Cook on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, until the underside is golden brown. Keep warm in a low oven (200 F/100 C) while you finish cooking remaining batter.
Remove star anise from compote before serving on top of pancakes.

A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew.
