**Updated at Bottom With Winner**

Thanks to all who entered!

Around here breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it’s also the busiest and pickiest meal of the day. It seems that no matter what I decide to cook, someone is always unhappy with my choice. There is however, one breakfast item that my children request time and again…pancakes. It’s not that I mind making pancakes, I mean hey I love them, it just takes forever. By the time I’ve made enough pancakes to feed all of my hungry kiddos an hour has gone by and there’s no hope for me setting down to breakfast with my family. Then there are the times when I’m busy with deadlines and homework and I just cannot seem to pull myself away from the computer long enough to spend an hour making pancakes, and since my fiancĂ© does not cook (ever), it’s always nice when I have something quick and easy for the kids that they can pop in the microwave and make for themselves.

Recently I had the chance to do a review for Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes (the Gods must have been listening to me grumble as I stood at the stove flipping flap jacks). Since pancakes are such a huge hit around here I was more than happy to except this yummy review. Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes come in a variety of breakfast solutions sure to please every member of your family including; Home-style, Buttermilk, Low Fat Buttermilk, Whole Grain, Mini-pancakes, and their new flavor Blueberry pancakes. Here are some yummy tidbits from the Aunt Jemima website:

With over 100 years of experience, Aunt Jemima is the pancake expert. From our fun Mini Pancakes, to our better-for-you Whole Grain offering, Aunt Jemima pancakes are a warm, nutritious breakfast for the whole family. And they're ready in minutes out of the microwave or toaster.

We were able to try the Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes as part of our review, we choose the Homestyle pancakes (though I would have chosen Blueberry had my store carried them). I was a little worried about how the pancakes would taste since I do not prefer food cook in the microwave (for myself) but I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy they were. Of course the kids loved them as well.

Aunt Jemima is also running a very cool contest right now encouraging you to “Capture Your Morning Moments on Camera” for the chance to win a family vacation! You can find out all of the details of this great contest (which ends December 31) here.

Just in time for the holidays Aunt Jemima is giving you a fun way to bring some holiday cheer to breakfast by encouraging your kids to play with their food. Aunt Jemima has given us some great recipes to bring a little more fun to breakfast using their frozen pancakes. So I wanted to share a couple of these very cute creations with you!
