How to Serve these Beauties

Now that you’re ready to plate your beautiful creations, here are some ideas! For regular breakfast service, we love dousing each lemon ricotta pancake with strawberry compote and topping it with confectioners sugar and fresh strawberries. Then, we send it out for delivery with organic chicken apple sausage, homemade granola, and fruit!lemon ricotta pancakes lemon ricotta pancakes

For special occasions, get creative with it!

This Easter, we made out guests laugh by placing this friendly face in front of them. To top it all off, we also gave them a teacup filled with carrot, apple, raisin salad and a deviled egg!
