Author Notes: Back in the day -- OK, back in the Dark Ages -- when I was in college, one of my biggest treats was to go out on Sunday morning, buy a New York Times, and head to IHOP to eat cheese blintzes, drink about a gallon of coffee and read the newspaper. The blintzes were not true blintzes, but something between a crepe and a pancake, wrapped around a cheesy filling. I haven't tried these since I started making my own ricotta, but they're good with the grocery store variety. - Kayb - Kayb
Food52 Review: Being true to their name, Kayb's cheese blintzes are way better than IHOP! The blintzes are stuffed with a lightly sweetened ricotta mixture and topped with a bold combination of raspberry preserves and balsamic vinegar. A satisfying breakfast that's both light and filling. - broccolirose
