Breakfast Kids Can Make Themselves

School is starting and so does the chaos. That is at least in my house. I get so tired of being the short order cook so I have taught my kids to cook a couple of things on their own. I have also made a couple of breakfast items that they can grab and enjoy on their own. These are our favorites and I hope that they make your life easier. We all need breakfast kids can make themselves.Continue reading

Shaking Up Breakfast With Jimmy Dean® and State Fair®!

Shaking Up Breakfast With Jimmy Dean® and State Fair®!

Can you believe that in just a few short weeks school will be back in session!? For me that means no more leisurely mornings with my kids just hanging out, it means hectic mornings of making sure lunches are packed, clothes are on right, and most importantly, that my kids get a good breakfast before they go to school. Now I don’t know why, but kids can be picky eaters, am I right!? My daughter for example, will not eat anything whole. If it’s a sandwich, it has to be cut into fourths, apples cut into slices, you get the picture ha. So when it comes to breakfast I’m always looking for creative ways to serve my kids breakfast that will ensure that they like it and will eat it all.

Well lucky for me there is something that my kids will always eat, and that is (pretty much) everything that happens to be cut up and has a toothpick in it. I don’t know why, but it always works! So Thanks to Jimmy Dean® and State Fair® my kids and I were able to come up with a fun breakfast that everyone will love to munch on in the morning!

So before making our yummy breakfast creation we packed up and headed to WalMart to grocery shop. I love shopping at WalMart because they always have everything I need at a great price! You can find Jimmy Dean® and State Fair® in the freezer aisle.

I know some of you might be wondering, corn dogs for breakfast? The simple answer is YES! My kids love it! And anything that is easy to throw together is perfect for this busy mom! So stay with me, this breakfast creation is going to savory and sweet, and your kids are going to love them!

Here is how we ended up Shaking Up Breakfast With Jimmy Dean® and State Fair®!

Step 1: Ok first what you are going to do is heat up your Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches and your State Fair® Corn Dogs. Try not to eat them before so you can get to the next steps ha!

Step 2: Cut your Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches and State Fair® Corn Dogs into pieces and stick a toothpick into each piece.

Step 3: Ok, now it’s time to bring the sweet. Hit your pieces with some maple syrup drizzle! Hungry yet?

Step 4: Finish it off with some powdered sugar and bam! You have an easy breakfast that takes only minutes to make, and will sure to be gobbled up in minutes.

How easy was that right? So when the school year starts know that Jimmy Dean® and State Fair® has you covered with easy breakfast (and lunch, and snack!) solutions!

Blueberry Pineapple Bread Recipe

blueberry bread with pineapple

Blueberry Pineapple Bread Recipe

 

We love a great bread. We have always loved the sweetness of a blueberry and the tart taste of a pineapple. The combination of the two in a bread is divine. I usually make muffins like this but my kids really enjoy a bread. I decided to try to make a bread to enjoy.

Blueberry BreadIngredients:
This will make two loaves
  • 1¾ cup flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of  salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk (we use rice milk)
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 cup of crushed pineapples (with the juice is fine)
  • 4 oz plain Greek yogurt (regular should work too)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Blueberry pineapple Bread

 

  You will combine all of the dry ingredients in one bowl. Then you will combine all the wet ingredients in another.

I leave the blueberries out until I have combined the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.  Then you add the blueberries. I always butter the loaf pan or spray them with cooking spray. The loaves will cook at 350 degrees for 45- 55 minutes or until they are golden brown.

I let them cool and then I turn them oven to cool on the wire rack for the remaining time. I usually make the icing and apply it to half of the loaf and the other half I leave it off. The is a great bread to grab on the run or a cake if you add the icing.

This is the icing recipe which isn’t necessary but it is good .

I use the lemon icing the I use on my Starbucks Lemon copy cat recipe. This is my favorite lemon pound cake recipe.
