I found this recipe in Heidi Swanson’s Cook 1.o: A Fresh Approach to the Vegetarian Kitchen and as soon as I tasted them, I was instantly in love. These must be the most delectable pancakes I’ve ever tasted. I opted to top the pancakes with a lemon glaze to really bring out that lemony flavor (similar to what I did here for icing) and I think it made them just perfect. Of course it would also be wonderful with some pure maple syrup, if you’d like to go for the more classic pancake idea.:)

Asparagus has to be one of the most delicious and beautiful side dishes when it comes to vegetables. This recipe is my go-to when I need a quick side and it’s incredibly simple and versatile! If you don’t have goat cheese and lemon thyme, it is also wonderful with parmesan and most any herb (rosemary!). Hope you enjoy this as much as we do.:)

I pulled down my copy of Frame-by-Frame Baking this morning in hopes that I’d find some inspiration for something yummy to bake for breakfast. I found this recipe for a crown loaf using hazelnuts, dark rum, and crystallized ginger, which sounds deeelicious, but unfortunately for me my kitchen was lacking those particular items and I wasn’t feeling in the mood to make a grocery run. I did, however find some pecans, a bottle of triple sec, and a peach and decided to see what would happen. I was happy with what came out, and I think they are a lovely addition to a brunch or the perfect accompaniment for a cup of joe. Not too sweet..but definitely delicious.

I love the magazine Real Simple, and my sweet husband bought me a subscription last year. I’ve kept all of the magazines I’ve received, so I decided to flip through them for cooking inspiration. I found this recipe in the May ’09 issue and thought it looked like a tasty option, plus, Clif looooves salmon. It’s SUPER easy, takes about 25 minutes start to finish and all of the ingredients are things that most people keep on hand. Overall, it was a winner in our book!

Closet Cooking is a blog that I frequent and I have enjoyed trying out a few of Kevin’s delicious recipes! A couple months ago, my sister Lauren pointed out this delightfully fresh and tasty pesto. I must apologize for not sharing it with you sooner this summer, because I think this is best when made with fresh peas, but frozen peas also work just fine once they are thawed if that’s all you can get your hands on. I thought about waiting till next spring to share, but I just couldn’t keep this recipe to myself until then!:) As soon as Clif and I tasted this pesto we fell in love with the flavor. I tossed it with some pasta and threw some grilled chicken on top and it made for a great dinner, but as Kevin showed in his blog, is also delicious on a crostini for an appetizer or side dish!
