Pancakes
July 14, 2011

So you know what happens when you say you want to start blogging again, and then write a post telling everyone that you want to start blogging again, and then you get caught up in all kinds of real life stuff that make it hard to sit down for a few minutes and actually write a post (because gracious, where are you even supposed to start??), and then you go for a few more months without any blogging whatsoever?  You get serious blogger’s-block.

Which is why I’m not going to get into any explanations or recap of what’s been going on over the last little while, and instead, I’m simply going to grace you all with the best pancake recipe I’ve ever tried.  See, I went to Chicago a couple of years back, and we ate breakfast at this amazing place called The Bongo Room.  Before I went, I looked up the menu (which they change frequently), and saw “Lemon Ricotta Pancakes,” which sounded like the best thing in the world.  When we actually got there, however, they had changed the menu, and I ended up having “White Chocolate Pretzel Pancakes” instead (which were amazing, btw.  If you are ever in Chicago, you must go there.).  And though I was completely satisfied, the idea of Lemon Ricotta pancakes did not leave me.  So when I was getting together with some friends for breakfast last Sunday, I did a google search and came up with these:

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Lemon Curd and Fresh Raspberries.  Yummmm.

And yes, they were pretty much the best pancakes I have ever made, and they probably tie as the best pancakes I have ever eaten (because those white chocolate pretzel ones were reeeeeeally good).

I did forget my camera, though, so I don’t have any pictures.  Boo.
