Look, I’m not really a “share my recipes online” kind of person, because I don’t really use recipes. I’m more of an intuitive cook. That said, I do have one recipe that I follow religiously and it’s these pancakes. They only have FOUR ingredients, so they’re fabulously easy to make.

So I did some digging and came up with some ideas on how to cook using Trader Joe’s umami seasoning.
