  1. I am SO glad that we ran out of milk this morning, because I would have been missing out on these lovelies! I pureed the cottage cheese curds first before mixing everything into it and the result was almost magical. I think we will be renaming this "Cheesecake Pancakes" because that's what they taste like! I halved the recipe for my family of 4 and added fresh strawberry chunks while they were cooking. YUM! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's definitely a keeper!
  2. Cottage Cheese Pancakes are a childhood favorite of mine so I was more than happy to give this a try. Very yummy and fluffy. I blended the cottage cheese since thats what I normaly do but next time I will leave it chunky for extra fun and texture. Thanks for sharing 2hot!!


Well, I love to cook! Big surprise there. I've gotten so many great recipes from RecipeZaar that I finally decided to join. My goal is to organize all of my stray recipes to make sure they don't get lost, and also to remember which ones we love! I like a lot of variety, so I rarely cook the same thing week after week. The trouble is, as time goes by, it becomes difficult to remember all of the dishes that everyone loved and/or menus that were a hit when we had company. I'm hoping RecipeZaar will help on that front. I work part-time and have 2 young children, so mostly what I focus on these days is preparing simple, fresh, healthy meals that all of us will enjoy. Our kids are not coddled - they are expected to eat what they are served. However, I do try to have at least one item on the menu that I KNOW they'll like. They are very good eaters overall, but of course they have slightly different tastes, and my son is a "separator," which makes soups and casseroles a challenge sometimes. Luckily, my husband will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that is put in front of him. :-)
