Yogurt Covered Blueberries

Terrific*easy* new fruit snack for the summer months! 2 cups plain yogurt (or Greek yogurt), 24 ounces fresh blueberries rinsed well and dried on paper towels in a colander. Add yogurt to a bowl and using a slotted spoon dip several blueberries at a time into the yogurt, allow to drip and place coated blueberries on a parchment lined platter(s) or sheet pan(s). It will take a few minutes to do this but the reward afterwards makes in worthwhile!

Place the platter(s) or Sheet pan(s) in the freezer shelf for several hours to freeze. Once frozen place in freezer safe baggies or airtight container . Keep frozen and when ready grab a handful or bowlful and have at it! I am telling you they are scrumptious on a hot day! Cool and refreshing.

I hope you’ll enjoy these-we sure do! In closing I wish you Good Health. cheffie cooks easy 123.

Do you like Pancakes or Waffles?

WIN_20160406_20_02_38_Pro (4)

I have an easy, flavorful recipe for bumping up the flavors. Very economical to make and easy! I just love specialty butters on pancakes.
I use Hungry Jack pancake mix (why?) it is easy, just add water to the batter and grill away! Flavored butter is as follows: 1 stick lightly salted butter, several tablespoons of any fruit or fruit preserves you like, yes even Nutella, add all ingredients into blender (or you can use a hand mixer) until creamy consistency. Transfer to an airtight container until ready to use. Add some into pancake/waffle batter and grill away. Use it on a cooked waffle!

Butter and warmed maple syrup is another easy, economical option.

This is so economical and easy to make and tastes wonderful on warm pancakes/waffles! Give it a try, that is if you like pancakes/waffles!

In closing, I wish you Good Health.
