101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes

With school getting into full swing, every family is looking for ways to start their days off with a quick & hearty breakfast. The newest photography cookbook in the bestselling Gooseberry Patch series, 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes, is filled with recipes that fit the bill!

With 4 chapters filled with recipes for every day, from the busiest marathon days to those lazy weekend mornings, it’s one family cooks will find themselves reaching for alongside that first cup of coffee. It’s packed with photos for each recipe, so while they may be out of eggs, they’ll never run low on inspiration.

Some of my family’s favorites have to be:  Johnny Appleseed Toast, Cereal-to-Go (this is a great snack too!), monkey bread, french toast casserole, etc.  I could go on and on and on.  Bill has been planning our weekend breakfasts for the rest of this month.  Like all of my other Gooseberry cookbooks, I love how easy the recipes are.  The ingredients are things you either have in your pantry or can easily get at the grocery store.

If you need a great cookbook, I highly recommend 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes!

Kung Fu Panda Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Diane Baum. Congrats!

General Mills is teaming up with DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda 2 to bring the action-packed adventures right to your breakfast table. Spin fighter toys featuring Kung Fu Panda 2 characters including Po, Tigress, Shifu, Monkey, Lord Shen, Mantis, Crane and Viper can be found inside specially marked boxes of participating General Mills cereals: Cocoa Puffs® (11.8 oz.), Trix® (10.7 oz.), Golden Grahams® (12 oz.), Reese’s Puffs® (13 oz.), Cheerios® (14 oz.), Apple Cinnamon Cheerios® (12.9 oz.), Cookie Crisp® (11.25 oz.), Lucky Charms® (11.5 oz.), Cinnamon Toast Crunch (12.8 oz.) and Honey Nut Cheerios (12.25 oz.). They are super easy to find (and easily marked). My kids are huge GM cereal fans, so we always have these cereals on hand.

Let the games begin with one spin fighter toy in each box. Simply cut out the targets on the box and then use your spin fighter to try and knock them down. With eight character toys to collect, the Kung Fu fun can continue all summer long!

Since my kids have had so much fun (and many breakfasts) with this, I have arranged for one lucky reader to get one of their own Kung Fu Panda 2 prize pack which includes one box of a participating Big G cereal, a Kung Fu Panda 2 spin fighter toy and the original Kung Fu Panda movie  Here’s what you need to do:

Tell me which GM cereal listed above is your favorite!
