Lemon Yogurt Roll-ups

Recently my husband and I had breakfast at one of our favorites restaurant.

Katrina's is well know for great food and large portions.  Voted best of the best in
Sacramento magazine.

Katrina's is owned by a husband and wife, of course Katrina is the lovely wife and your husband is Lewis.  They can cook up a storm!

It's a very small place located off Hwy 49 in Auburn, California.

It is a small yellow house, but it can accommodate quite a few, since the also seat guests on the side and front porch.

We recently tried the Lemon Yogurt pancakes..  Lemon luscious and so light.
I decided to try to make them at home.  I think the next time, I will add club soda to make them lighter.

Use your favorite pancake mix, or  make them from scratch.

Lemon Yogurt Roll-ups

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup  lemon greek yogurt
2/3 cup milk
2 tbsp lemon juice
zest from 1 lemon 

After I cook these babies, I than spread some lemon curd over the pancakes, then proceeded to roll them up.  It makes a pretty presentation with some powdered sugar.
This would be a heavenly dessert, complete with whipped cream.
Try some Meyer lemon syrup sometime.  Yumm!

Lemon Curd Recipe -this recipes comes from Ina Garten

3 lemons
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
4 extra-large eggs
1/2 cup lemon juice (3 to 4 lemons)
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
Using a carrot peeler, remove the zest of 3 lemons, being careful to avoid the white pith. Put the zest in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the sugar and pulse until the zest is very finely minced into the sugar.

Cream the butter and beat in the sugar and lemon mixture. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add the lemon juice and salt. Mix until combined.

Pour the mixture into a 2 quart saucepan and cook over low heat until thickened (about 10 minutes), stirring constantly. The lemon curd will thicken at about 170 degrees F, or just below simmer. Remove from the heat and cool or refrigerate.

I have my favorites....There' so much to choose from.
Eggs Benedict is out of this world.  We have tried so many restaurants, none come close to Katrina's.

I have also been busy working on a few blogs.  Liz from, Infuse With Liz wanted to change to a 3 column template and some minor tweaks.  Betty's invitations for her daughter's wedding should arrive on Monday.  I designed them.  Another client Maria that sells snow cones and does face painting wants some changes to her website. She has a Wordpress site.  I am slowly trying to learn it too.
Don't forget I created a new site just about Blog Designs. A Blog Fairy, because my fellow bloggers have given me the name, Fairy Blog Mother., which that name wasn't available.

I have two doctor appointments this month for check-ups.  Let's hope all goes well.

Stay cool and enjoy your summer.

  14. Linda! HELLO!!!!!!!

    I just saw your comment, and you are so kind to say that about my writing...HA! You should see the mess I'm making as I attempt to write poetry! It is not easy, but thank you kindly for encouraging my blog writing which is totally different from poetry!

    I am so thrilled that you want to join in on the party and have a chance for the tea set. I've put your name in the "tea pot" for a chance, and I will take your link to add to my list.

    WOW your audience, have fun, no worries about perfect prose or poetry, but have fun and take your guests to a dream destination. It can be anywhere in Europe you desire to go, have been or are dreaming of. Cuisine, design, architecture, art/museums, ANYTHING.

    CIAO and see you on Friday! Anita

  16. Hiya WW,
    I love this post and your picture of Lemon Yogurt Roll Ups....how scrumptious! The combination of lemon and yogurt always adds such a fresh zing to dishes! I bet this was delicious. I love little restaurants inside of homes. There are a couple on the island set off in the forest that are my very favourite places to go.
    Let me know how your schedule is next week so we can find some time to chat! I'm missing you! Lots of love and hugs, sweet friend. xoxo

  17. Oh Linda, how totally yummy these are! Thanks for the recipe, I'd love to indulge! Hubby will love the lemon pancakes, I know.
    I will pray so everything goes well with your medical, besides the fact that I'm sure it will, pretty lady!
    Have a happy weekend.

  18. These look soooooo good! I've tried making pancakes and crepes before, but they never seem to turn out, even if I follow the directions. :(

    Good luck, I hope your test results all come out good!

  19. Linda, I love all things lemon. I'd even have this for dessert.
