  • Cheryl&Co.® Watering Can full of goodies (giveaway)- What a Mom Wants

    Cheryl&Co.® sent us an adorable pink polka dot Watering Can chock full of adorable and delectable goodies.  Whimsical sugar cookies shaped like flowers in pink,yellow and orange buttercream frosting were the first goodies we saw upon opening the packaging, and as we ate more cookies we noticed some milk chocolate pretzel clusters.  As if whimsical cookies weren’t enough, the sweet and salty combination of the pretzels was just over the top.  I have a sister who can pass on sweets- unless they have a salty component- even she was not immune to the goodness of the pretzel clusters.

Check out these two delicious recipes that put a twist on the traditional! And don’t forget about Easter brunch! The recipes below can be a perfect addition to your Easter menu as well!

    Guilt-Free Eggs Benny

    Ingredients: 2 eggs; 1 light whole wheat English Muffin; 2 slices Canadian bacon; 1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt; 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard; Kosher salt and cayenne pepper, to taste; 1 tablespoon lemon zest, for garnish; 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish; 1 tablespoon white vinegar, Non-fat cooking spray
    Instructions: 1. In a large pan coated with non- stick cooking spray, brown the Canadian bacon over medium heat. Remove from the pan and keep warm. 2. In a small saucepan, over very low heat, combine yogurt, dry mustard, and season with the salt and cayenne pepper, whisking continually until warm. Be careful: if you overheat, your yogurt will curdle. 3. In a pot of boiling water, add the vinegar and reduce heat to a low simmer. Crack one egg into a small bowl and very gently add it to the simmering water. Repeat this for the second egg. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the egg is completely coagulated and the yolk looks slightly opaque. 4. In the meantime, toast the whole wheat English muffin. Assemble by placing the toasted muffin on a plate. Top with a piece of the Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and then top with the yogurt sauce. Sprinkle lemon zest and chopped parsley over each egg.
    Seafood Frenzy Eggs Benedict

    Ingredients: 12 eggs; 1 to 2 tablespoons white vinegar; 6 English Muffins; unsalted butter, for spreading; 6 tablespoons Philadelphia Cream Cheese; 12 spears of asparagus, cut in half and steamed; 1 package of Knorr Hollandaise Sauce; 1/2 lemon, zested and juiced; 1 can lump crabmeat, divided into 12 portions; 12 large slices of smoked salmon; 12 cooked and completely peeled large shrimp; sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste; 12 dill sprigs, about 2 inches long
    Instructions: 1. In a small bowl, prepare the hollandaise according to the package instructions. Add the fresh lemon juice. Reserve. 2. In a large pot of boiling water add the vinegar. Turn the heat down to a low simmer. Crack the eggs one at a time, into a small bowl and add them one at a time very gently into the simmering water. Cook for 3-5 minutes until the egg is completely coagulated and the yolk looks slightly opaque. Remove from the water. 3. Meanwhile, toast the English Muffins and butter when warm. Top the butter with a smear of cream cheese. Top each with two pieces of asparagus. Top the asparagus with a scoop of crabmeat and a piece of smoked salmon. Place the poached egg on top. 4. Top each with a shrimp and drizzle with the hollandaise. Season with the salt and pepper. Garnish with the dill and the lemon zest. (Serves 6)
