In 1599, William Shakespeare wrote about a pancake-loving knight in As You Like It (Act 1, Scene 2), who “swore by his honor they were good pancakes, and swore by his honor the mustard was naught.” We don’t know what the hell the whole mustard thing was about – but we swear by our honor that these are some equally good Pancake Picks. Check out the best shows of the week below!
