Prepare Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix as directed, adding 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel for each cup of mix used. For Berry Pancake Topping: Combine 16 oz fresh or frozen berries, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in medium saucepan. Stir over low heat until fruit is soft. If desired, mash fruit with fork or potato masher to release juices. Serve warm over pancakes.

Cheese, Bacon and Wheat Germ Grits with Poached Eggs – Recipe Courtesy of Kretschmer
For a Southern classic with a twist, we’ve added some wheat germ to this hearty dish. Serve these grits with a mixed green salad or fruit salad for a delicious brunch, lunch or even dinner.
4 cups water plus additional for poaching eggs
1 cup 5-minute or quick stone-ground yellow grits
4 ounces Canadian bacon, preferably uncured
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
1/8 teaspoon salt
In medium saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Gradually whisk in grits. Cover and cook over low heat, whisking often, until grits are thick and just tender, about 5 minutes.
While grits are cooking, heat the Canadian bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Remove from pan and dice. Stir bacon into the finished grits along with wheat germ and cheddar cheese. Set aside, covering the pot to keep warm.
To poach eggs, fill large skillet halfway with water and bring water to a boil. Crack 4 eggs into small individual bowls. Reduce heat to medium low and slowly slide each egg into the skillet, keeping the eggs from touching each other. Cover and cook eggs approximately 3 minutes or until desired yolk consistency. Remove from pot with a slotted spoon and place on large flat plate.
To serve, scoop a generous 1 cup of grits into each of four bowls, top with a poached egg and a pinch of salt if desired. Serve immediately.
After a day of pampering, you can end her day on a sweet note too with an impressive dish of Molten Deep Dish Cookies from Krusteaz. Inspired by decadent restaurant desserts, such as the molten chocolate cake, this cookie mix combines the texture of a chewy cookie paired with a rich molten center. These unique molten cookie mixes are available in Classic and Sugar Cookie with gooey chocolate centers, and Chocolate with a gooey caramel center.
These cookies remind me more of molten brownies or sugar cookies with a gooey center. So delicious that Mom won’t be able to resist them. They make a perfect afternoon treat with a cup of coffee or tea while Mom watches a chick-flick in her favorite chair and fuzzy slippers.
