Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

I wish I were a food photographer.  These were soooo good.  Much better than my picture!
     Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes!  Need I say more?  These were amazing!  My cooking is not usually blog worthy - until today.  I was inspired by this wonderful recipe at Nutmeg Nanny.
      I met Brandy of Nutmeg Nanny at our local CSA.  Brandy saw me taking a picture of the list of goodies we were picking up that week.  Brandy mentioned that she had a blog and then I said, "I have a blog," and well you get the idea.  When I looked her up at home I realized that I had visited her yummy blog before.   Her recipes are just that good.
     Not sure what to make?  Brandy also lists recipes by ingredient.
    Brandy's recipe is "Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce."   I used Brandy's recipe for the pancakes (plus one tablespoon of lemon juice) and then instead of making the sauce I folded the blueberries into the batter.
     My children loved it.  Definitely a "Do over."
     Blueberries grow on lovely bushes.  They do not ripen all at once, so you can see green, red, and then delicious purply-blue berries in one cluster.  
  Blessed of the Lord is his land,
With the precious things of heaven, with the dew,
And the deep lying beneath,
 With the precious fruits of the sun,
With the precious produce of the months,
 With the best things of the ancient mountains,
With the precious things of the everlasting hills,                                                 ~Deuteronomy 33: 13-15 
     Aren't they beautiful?  Go visit Nutmeg Nanny for more delicious recipes.

Yum, I'll have to try the ricotta pancakes. I wonder if they will be like what my husband remembers his Italian grandmother making.
