  1. Thanks for posting your menu's. I am always looking for new healthy recipes to try. I HATE making the same old things all of the time. I LOVE variety!! So, this morning we tried your Lemon Cottage Cheese pancakes for breakfast. Cristi's in-laws grow lemons, grapefruits, and oranges in Arizona. Cris & Rob were kind enough to share and we happen to have lots of lemons to use! I LOVED this recipe!! Will definitely make these pancakes again! Thanks a bunch!
