Chef McCargo’s Cook Book

Earlier this fall, I had the opportunity to attend the awesome, fantastic, so-much-fun Blogalicious, where I listened to uplifting and motivating seminars by Rene Syler and a slew of others.
I (also) got to meet Chef Aaron McCargo Jr. from Food Network, as you may remember:
He was there to talk about his partnership with Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast, but more importantly, he cooked our dinner – using their products. Admittedly a little skeptical about frozen pancakes, etc., I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Really and truly, folks.
I’m sure they were anticipating reactions like mine, and so before we ate anything, we watched a video about how their product is made. There’s really not much too it, which is a good thing. Here’s what they had to say about their frozen breakfast:

“We are proud to make Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast just like you do at home – with real eggs and milk – and no preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial flavors. We make every batch of our delicious pancakes, waffles and French toast from scratch.”

My favorite plate of the night was Chef McCargo’s “Slamming Bananas Foster Pancakes” – um, ridiculously good (and I’m not usually a sweets-for-breakast kinda girl). I had two platefuls.
And now for the giveaway….
Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast reached out to me recently to see if I’d like to give anything away to my readers, and I had to say, “Yes.” SO, you have the opportunity to win a bag of really awesome goodies – seriously. Here’s what’s up for grabs:
