Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes: Light, rich & airy all at the same time. There's just a hint of lemon but orange or vanilla is great, too.

First, to my children: These are not your Momma’s pancakes. I was the worst Mom in the morning and I apologize. I’m surprised you didn’t starve to death or die of malnutrition. And now, here I am making pancakes (and all kinds of breakfasty things) for the folks all the time. Secondly, even when I did make pancakes, they weren’t these Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans - simple enough for every day; elegant enough for company! There are potatoes, too, making it a complete meal. Try it with artichokes in the spring!

A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how simple this dish is and they’ll think you’re a genius.

Drying or Freezing Citrus Zest
