Sometimes you might want to include notes or comments from the contributor. They might be about where the recipe came from, special instructions, optional information... anything really that isn't critical to the instructions themselves.

I credit this recipe to my daughter, even though she doesn't make them.

Pancakes with Sprinkles
Pancake mix
Multicolor “jimmies” sprinkles
Mini chocolate chips
Directions: Heat a nonstick griddle (or spray your pan with cooking spray). Prepare the pancake mix as usual, but add sprinkles and chocolate chips to the batter. (For 4 pancakes, about 1 tsp. sprinkles and 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips.) Cook as usual.
NOTE: I started making these for her after she had “Sprinkle Pancakes” from the kid’s menu at a local breakfast restaurant, and I saw “Birthday Cake Pancake” mix in the grocery store for twice the price. The jimmies melt as they cook, making these very much like Funfetti pancakes, without the cost. The chocolate chips were her addition, and insistence. (WW)
