Blueberry PancakesBy Ginny's TeamWhen you have a little extra time on a weekend morning, pull out your fluffy slippers and treat your family with blueberry pancakes! Pancakes are a go-to favorite breakfast meal. We love adding in blueberries for a delicious and healthy one-two punch; did you know that blueberries are full of antioxidants, which are great for heart health? For truly excellent blueberry pancakes, let the batter sit and rest for a while to allow the gluten you've created through mixing to relax. And when it comes time to pour the batter on the griddle, try to enlist some little helpers! Kids love trying to make the perfect circle, though they may need a little help when it comes to flipping.
Berry BBQ ChickenBy Ginny's TeamBerry BBQ chicken is the best way to get the taste of winter without the any of the chilliness!

When you’re feeling like a delicious, savory home cooked meal but don’t want to put it any effort, simply take out the freezer bag, dump the contents into a slow cooker, and let the appliance work its magic! The slight tang of cranberries adds an element of interest to this berry BBQ chicken.
