lemon thyme pancakes with blueberry sauce recipe

I had a big morning this morning – I registered my baby for kindergarten. Huge. I sort of expected it to be more of a ceremony, but I handed some papers over and was out of the office three minutes later. Did she not understand that it was a huge moment for me? I cannot believe that next year he will be at big kid school with his brother and sister. Where did the time go? That question leads me to my next question, what will I do with my time when all of my kids are at school? It is a scary and exciting time here at the Hester house.

I make a lot of pancakes. Obviously for breakfast, but more times than not, I make them for dinner. I love how fast they come together and how everyone in my house loves them. It makes a random weeknight feel special. As you know, I love anything with lemon, and had some beautiful thyme in my fridge that needed to used, so I added them to my lemon ricotta pancakes. And they were heavenly. I loved these pancakes. Not only did they taste delicious, but how gorgeous are these? I love how light and fluffy they are, and the ricotta cheese keeps these pancakes really moist. And without even realizing it, they fit in perfectly with my Sargento Flavor Journey. Using fresh herbs when cooking and baking really takes your recipes from okay to outstanding.

    Now I am not a mom, but, when MEM (the three little ones I used to nanny) went off to school, I was completely teary eyed. The littlest M is my god-daughter, and in 1st grade, I still get teary eyed every grade she moves up. I am hoping her sweet hugs never go away!

    Bree, these pancakes are OMG gorgeous. I am thinking I should make a batch … soon.

  5. Angie says:

    What a gorgeous stack of pancakes!

  6. Hands down, the most gorgeous pancakes I’ve ever seen!!

    As for your little one starting kindergarten…I can tell you what you’ll do all day. The first week, you’ll be totally bored and organize everything in the house and cry, and after that, you’ll have lunch and go walk around the mall and get busy with blog stuff.

    And if you’re like me, you’ll wait a few years and decide it’s too quiet and have another baby ;)

    • bakedbree says:

      LOL! That made me laugh so hard! I agree about the cleaning/organizing, but not so much about the new baby!

  7. Bethany says:

    A breakfast this spectacular might even get my son out of bed on time! :) These would be excellent for any meal of the day!

  22. So, I am not a huge fan of pancakes–but I am DROOLING over these. Total food porn, the glossy blueberries are killing me here. Love it!

  23. I agree 100% with Cookbook Queen comment….haha…but not so much about new baby either!
