The Finest Dining

I've had a handful of people ask about where our (new, first!) dining room table is from, so I want to share the details! Which is easy as we love it so much and it’s absolutely the most sophisticated piece of furniture we’ve ever owned, Shawn and I take every opportunity we can to sit around our new table and gush about its beauty/classiness.
Last Sunday was the perfect day to not go outside, and instead watch someone else make you pancakes while sitting around being happy to be indoors. I did just that. Here’s a closer look at our dining nook and my favorite breakfast.

Ricotta Pancake Recipe (thanks to thekitchn):

Makes 8 to 10 pancakes
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, separated into yolks and whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Butter, for the pan
If your ricotta seems to have a lot of liquid, set it in a fine mesh strainer to drain off excess liquid about 30 minutes before you start cooking. If your ricotta seems fairly dry and compact, you can skip this step.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Combine ricotta, milk, egg yolks, and vanilla in a separate, larger mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the ricotta and milk mixture, stirring gently until just combined.
Beat the egg whites with a handheld electric mixer until stiff (see Recipe Note). Stir a small scoop of the egg whites into the pancake batter to lighten the batter, then fold in the remaining whites with a spatula.
Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Melt a small bit of butter in the pan, just enough to coat the surface. Use a 1/3-cup measure to pour batter onto the hot griddle. Cook the pancakes for about 3 or 4 minutes, until the undersides are golden and you see a few bubbles popping through the pancakes. Flip the pancakes and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, until golden. Repeat with the remaining pancakes.
