  1. These blintzes were great!! I had a little trouble getting the crepes right because I used rice milk, so I had to add a little extra flour to my batter. Once I got that right, they turned out delicious! I love the filling; the sugar sweetens it, while the ricotta gives the interesting texture that I love in blintzes I get at nice restaurants. I will definitely make these again!
  2. This would be better without ricotta cheese. My husband thinks it would be better with cream cheese insead of the ricotta. The ricotta does give it a strange taste. The rest of the pieces taste wonderful together.
  3. I was a little reticent to try this because of the cheese and sour cream, but boy! am I glad I did! It was so lightly sweet, and very creamy without being too rich. We sprinkled the whole thing with toasted almond slivers. Merci, Adopted Parisian!


My husband and I are pastors who work with college students and young adults and we absolutely love it! The students are my "kids" and constantly teach me new things and keep my life interesting. I have posted many recipes here at their behest. Sometimes I think they just love me 'cause they know that can come over and get a fresh homecooked meal -a great break from their sketchy college cafeteria food! I grew up in a beautiful, loud, fun, albeit slightly crazy, Spanish-Italian family where cooking is not just about putting food on the table -it is an art. An intense, passionate art of carefully guarded secret recipes. So cooking is in my blood and I enjoy it immensely. I love having dinner parties just so I can whip up fancy new recipes. And the college students are always happy to be my guests!
