 Blood orange ricotta pancakes with coconut and ginger (recipe here)

Homemade dried cara cara orange segments 

Hello! Happy Spring! I know, i know it's been quite a while, i kinda forgot about this little blog and life has been busy  ^_^ But i promise i'll try to post more regularly. I really enjoy posting and sharing my recipes and other things.
It's been so beautiful here in NY lately, although one day it will be 70 degrees and perfect out while the next day it will go down to 30 degrees and rain, like today it's so dreary and cold! Well, despite the beautiful weather lately i've been sick with a bad cold for almost a week now, so citrus fruits have been what i''ve been craving, so refreshing! Blood oranges, grapefruits, oranges, lemon water...
 The pancakes pictured above were pretty amazing. This was my first time making ricotta pancakes and i loved how fluffy they were compared to regular pancakes! The addition of the blood orange compote, ginger, coconut and salty/sweet sunflower seed butter all went perfectly!

What are some of your favorite recipes with citrus?

  1. that looks really pretty, and likely tastes as good as it looks :)

  2. those pancakes look and sound like works of art :) as u know i love citrus...pink grapefruit is my favorite!

  3. elizaaa! i loved seeing your little blog pop up on my sidebar thingy. those pancakes look really lovely, and i really enjoy browsing that cook website thing, it's cute. i like baked goods with citrus, like lemon loaf (which i haven't had in a while but its good) and i love adding citrus to recipes to enhance flavours, especially in gingerbread/loaf. i've been having a lot of mandarins lately even though they're probably not in season anymore. i didn't think i liked them and always went for the tiny clementines around christmas time but these are really sweet and refreshing.

  4. Never thought to put ricotta in pancakes :) Favorite citrus recipes... I once made a salad with edamame, green peas, and lima beans tossed with lemon juice, olive oil, and perhaps a vinegar.. topped with a bit of pecorino cheese! It is so good - I saved the recipe if you ever want it. can't forget lemon poppyseed muffins either :)

    love the blog - hope you keep posting! <3
