German Pancakes II
"INCREDIBLE recipe!" raves GWENEC. "Very impressive when you take out of the oven because it puffs up (it flattens after cutting/resting for a bit). SO much easier than pancakes! Sprinkled with powdered sugar after I removed from the oven. Would be lovely with fresh fruit!"
Vanilla Berry Parfaits
"I knew I would enjoy this, but it was better than expected," heinzymom writes. "I made the middle layer using mixed berry yogurt. In combination with the granola and fresh blueberries, sliced strawberries, and raspberries on top, this was the perfect amount of flavor."

"This is a recipe that children are sure to love," says nausheen. "You can also make it with apples instead of bananas."
