Pick me! – Eat me!

Pick me! – Eat me! Berries are the messengers of spring. Breakfast without the tiny red and blue shining pearls is like summer without sun. Those who take time preparing these delicious rounds will be happy for the whole day. Nothing is better than lukewarm berry juice drizzling over the pancakes topped with fresh berries and pomegranate seeds. The Chef’s Handyman team loves a breakfast with pancakes.
