Apricot Kolaches
Wonderful and easy, I think the cream cheam pastry is luscious as well as much easier and less time consuming than a yeast dough. The hint of cream cheese also provides the perfect complement to the warm richness of apricot filling. I added a just a hint of lemon zest to the pastry to accentuate the flavor and it all won rave reviews. Best of all, the ingredients are all things you can readily have on hand for any time you feel like making a fruit-based breakfast treat or dessert but don't have any fresh fruit handy. Wonderful!

Swedish Pancakes
These were delicious, better than any other Swedish pancakes I've attempted! I had no sour cream on hand, so I added lemon juice to 1/2 heavy cream, to sour and thicken it slightly; then I added1/2 c. milk to substitute for the 1 c. milk in the recipe. The egg whites in this recipe make each result lighter and fluffier than more familar recipes which are easier but produce a less crispy, more -- rubbery? -- pancake. Amazing how special these are when the ingredients are so similar to the basic, insipid traditional pancake that has to be drowned in syrup and butter to render it some flavor. But these come right through, so enhance by going light on the garnish: light but good preserves or fresh fruit, even better. Syrup: bad! I'm grateful for this lovely start to our weekend!
