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
Test Kitchen Notes
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
I'm a business professional who learned to cook early on, and have expanded my tastes and my skills as I've traveled and been exposed to new cuisines and new dishes. I love fresh vegetables, any kind of protein on the grill, and breakfasts that involve fried eggs with runny yolks. My recipes tend toward the simple and the Southern, with bits of Asia or the Mediterranean or Mexico thrown in here and there. And a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a float in the lake, as pictured, is a pretty fine lunch!
