You may be wondering why you haven't heard from us in a while. The best answer is that we've had a series of fails. First it was the strawberry pancakes--they were ok, but mushy and not something you'd want to have again. Then, the strawberry shortcake--I made all-lard biscuits, they were also fine, but small and dense. In both cases I blame the presence of whole-wheat flour. I want to make healthier food, but I find this stuff so temperamental.

Finally, this morning I had a culinary triumph. These rosemary polenta pancakes with sliced cherries and lime are sublime. The absolute best of the season with quiet, harmonious flavors. The only way these could be better is with a little ricotta cheese. The pancakes themselves have a great tooth with a hint of fluff. The rosemary adds a savory twist that compliments the corn. And the cherry flavors are wine-y with the tang of lime. Can I have my breakfast again?
