  1. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe Pat. It's a unique pancake, I really enjoyed the flavor and the textures. The pancakes are tender and flavorful, topped with a nice ricotta cream, oranges and liquid honey. A beautiful blending of flavors.
  2. Made these pretty much as given, although I was both generous with the orange zest used in the batter & then I also added some to the ricotta/cream topping! Very, very nice with the seeds & zest, making for a nicely satisfying breakfast! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday tag]
  3. Had the house to myself today. Didn't really want to cook anything. Until I saw this recipe that is. I'm leaving any for anyone else.


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
