Yesterday was Pancake Day. It was also International Women’s Day.
In celebration of both these, Wink’d wants to discuss two of its favourite things: amazing women and amazing piles of warm, flavourful, delicious, syrup-coated bread.
First, amazing women.
What makes an amazing woman? Is it confidence, strength, delicate sensuality or tender habits? Is it the bold willingness to drop a Wink’d card in a martini glass (…not that we know from experience ;D ) or to say yes to a proposed date?
Is it the bravery to have all sorts of delightful liaisons and write about it, a la Sex at Oxbridge blogger? Or to raise two darling children in a happy marriage while cooking each and every day, like the mum at Peas and Thank You?
Here at Wink’d, we like them all.
Why don’t you tell us what you think? What makes an amazing woman?
Second, amazing pancakes.
In America, they’re big and fluffy. In England, they’re thin and stuffed. In France, they sell them on the streetcorners, dripping warm bits of melted Nutella and fragrant banana.
Savoury or sweet, big or bigger, pancakes are pretty much the ubiquitous comfort food.

And Third (bet you didn’t know there was a third!), Wink’d likes love. A lot. So why not mix the above two things? Cook a great meal for a special woman. Make her some pancakes. Let the love grow.
Get out there and celebrate.
