Menu Plan Week of February 9th ~ Plus a Hot Breakfast Giveaway!

The Hot Breakfast Challenge continues at the Happy House. Last week we enjoyed pancakes, French toast, eggs, oatmeal, and cinnamon rolls. A hot breakfast does not have to be fancy, eggs with a slice of whole wheat toast and some fresh fruit is a delicious and healthy alternative to preservative laden pre-packaged breakfast products.

Last week I purchased Heavenly Homemakers Breakfast Cookbook to find more recipes for this challenge. This week Laura from Heavenly Homemakers has offered to give one away to you! This cookbook is filled with great recipes, pictures and ideas for a healthy breakfast.

  3. HomeBizLiz says:

    Breakfast is my favorite meal, anytime during the day.
    We have breakfast for dinner at least twice a month.
    I could use some great new recipes.

  4. Oh I would love this! I have told the boys I am no longer buying cereal and they would have eat something else for breakfast. We are doing good so far but more ideas would be great!

  5. Would love to see some ideas of things to eat other than the usual staples around here– cereal!

  6. breakfast… ah I could use all the help I can get, seems we are stuck in a rut of pancakes and waffles.

  7. We are cutting back and moving away from cold cereal everyday so it requires more planning, but it’s way better in the long run! This book would really help us meet our goals and enjoy breakfast everyday.

  8. Sounds like something I could use!

    Just subscribed via email. Love your site!

  9. I’m stuck on scrambled eggs and “just add water” pancakes. I would love to have more ideas for breakfast.

    I can never have enough cookbooks…I would love to add this book to my growing collection!

  17. This sounds like a wonderful resource for great breakfasts.

  18. Loved the potato pancakes recipe. Brings back memories and I will make them soon. I love cookbooks and a breakfast cookbook would be a great addition to my collection.

  19. We eat cold cereal way too often around here, the pancakes look really easy AND yummy too.

  20. I’ve been enjoying your blog for awhile, and am also trying to get my family to eat healthy and cheaper breakfasts. My biggest problem is getting up early enough to prepare a breakfast. For some reason, my baby thinks she should get to nurse first thing every morning. I did however, make OATMEAL this morning, but sadly, only my kids went hungry. OH well, someday they will be hungry enough to eat it.

  21. This sounds great. I’m always looking for new breakfast ideas. “Regular” breakfast items just don’t fill my boys up enough!

  22. I would love to win this breakfast cookbook! I am always in the mood for some new ideas!

  23. I loved your menu – count me in on an opportunity for another cookbook.

  24. I love Cookbooks! Very neat.

  25. I don’t have any breakfast cookbooks so this would be great to win!

  26. I have breakfast ready for my 3 kids plus I also serve breakfast to my daycare kids that are here early, so a few nice twists to our breakfasts would be so much appreciated…and I’m sure the kids would agree too!!!

  27. I’d love to win the book. We have 3 teen boys at home still and I try to make them breakfast every morning as I feel it’s real important and lets face it most of the times teens just dont eat well. Winning this book would really help with some new ideas. Keeping my fingers crossed. 🙂
