• Fat Tuesday Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes

March 24, 2017

Today is Fat Tuesday! You know what that means, we absolutely must feature a pancake recipe. Funny enough, Fat Tuesday actually is a very literal translation from "Mardi Gras". It began as a way for Christians to indulge in food before fasting for lent the following day. It also symbolizes the end of carnival season. Naturally we have to celebrate the only way we know how, with food of course! We wanted to put a little twist on the traditional pancake recipe. These Blueberry Ricotta pancakes are fluffy, delicious and the perfect way to up your pancake game. Why not enjoy some breakfast for dinner tonight?
