Check out this recipe for Gluten Free Breakfast Blintzes. I love making this for breakfast, brunch or brinner. You can use any fresh fruit that you have on hand. I love it with berries but I have also made it with kiwi. You can also use ricotta cheese too!
Did you know that you can freeze cream cheese? It works great and saves money! I like to purchase cream cheese in bulk on sale and stockpile it for recipes. Check out this post Can You Freeze Cream Cheese to find out how!
