Aunt Jemima: Lil Griddles Review #AJLilGriddlesCG #spon

How psyched was I when Aunt Jemima sent over some new products for my family to try?  We really love breakfast in our house. We love it so much that we often save our favorite breakfast foods for dinner. Yes, hello BRINNER- anyone else do this?!!! Dinner is the only meal that all four of us eat together daily, so I try to make it as special as I can.


Last night's dinner consisted of Aunt Jemima buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon french toast, fresh blueberry sauce, strawberries, and sausages.  No joke, it took me longer to make the coffee than dinner.


I just popped the french toast in the toaster over and the pancakes in the microwave. In less than a minute the food was on the table. I have to admit that I was very surprised how fresh everything looked and smelled. My entire house smelled exactly the way it does when I spend an HOUR making pancakes for brinner. I think that it totally helps that Aunt Jemima uses quality, real ingredients like eggs, milk, and sugar - exactly the same ingredients as I use in my own. It really lives up to the slogan "Every batch made from scratch".


My family gave Aunt Jemima two thumbs up! Everyone quietly devoured the meal and then begged for more. I cut my 6 year old off after 5 pancakes (growth spurt?!!!). In fact, the boys requested pancakes again before school this morning! I love that our busy family can still have time for a hot meal before leaving the house. It feels good to send my boys to school knowing they had a hearty breakfast. Score one for mom!


Got toddlers in your house? Aunt Jemima also makes Lil' Griddles that offer a big breakfast taste, yet bite-sized. Perfect for little eaters. They come in three bite-sized breakfast options: Aunt Jemima frozen Blueberry Mini pancakes, Aunt Jemima frozen Mini pancakes, and Aunt Jemima frozen Cinnamon French Toast Sticks. I have a feeling we will be trying all three soon!

Hyundai’s Epic Playdate Sweepstakes! #EpicPlaydate #CGC

I have two very energetic and outdoorsy boys. Time outside to play and get dirty is a necessary part of each day. We love it when we can plan extra special and extended playdates on the weekend. Our favorite weekend plans include packing up the bikes, fishing gear, picnic lunch, snacks, and drinks and hitting the road. Usually we head out to find a nice spot to ride bikes and do a little hiking. We enjoy a picnic lunch followed by some fishing in a nearby creek. There is nothing better than turning off our cell phones and surrounding ourselves in nature for an afternoon.  



What would your ideal playdate with your kids look like? Would it include:
  • camping on the beach?
  • an ice cream sundae bar?
  • a paint fight?
  • a kids’ photography class?
  • a hula-hooping workshop?
If any of those sound appealing to your kids and inner playdate-loving self, then you would be the perfect family to win a four-pack of tickets to an exclusive invite-only Epic Playdate Weekend in Santa Barbara, CA on April 27 from 9am- 5pm hosted by Hyundai.
