A Review and Giveaway!

Great news for a change! I am too excited because I have been given the opportunity to do a Review and Giveaway for Pillsbury Grands Frozen Mini Biscuits. These are the new freezer-to-oven Mini biscuits that in just a few minutes you will have warm, fluffy and fresh biscuit from your oven.

You know me with all that is going on in my life I look for something easy and fast but yet yummy. This is what I found when I tried the Pillsbury Mini Biscuits. Let me tell you nothing beats a couple of these with butter and honey. Yep just heat your mini biscuits up dab some butter on them while their warm and pour the honey on....then sit back turn your computer on and pull up Just Between Me and You!...hahaha

Each 70-calorie biscuit is a delight when served hot from the oven, with a warm fluffy center and golden, flaky crust.

Whats really nice is these biscuits come in a frozen package where you only take out how many biscuits you want to fix. Not like the can where you have to fix them all. Just put the rest back in the freezer for the next time your hungry for something really good.
Since I had to fix breakfast for Gary the other morning before his treatment at MD Anderson I decided that he needed a little more than how I usually eat so I scrambled him some eggs, heated up some precooked ham slices, added some cheese and made him some little sliders to take with him on his trip. Talk about fast and easy yet so delicious. He loved them and told me I could make his breakfast anytime.

Now for the really great news you too can make someone special their breakfast by entering my giveaway. You will win a Pillsbury Grands! Mini Biscuits prize pack which includes a VIP coupon good for a free package of biscuits, a $15 gift card to purchase your whatever you want, a biscuit basket, a butter dish and spreader! How cool is that!

To enter leave me a comment on this post by midnight Sunday September  October 17th and tell me how your family would love to have their Pillsbury Grands Mini Biscuits served to them.

I will choose one lucky hungry winner by using the handy Random Generator.

Thanks to Pillsbury and My Blog Spark I was able to do this review and giveaway. For more information and recipes, visit (Please note all the prize packs and information were all given to me from Pillsbury through My Blog Spark.)

Once again I can not tell you how much I appreciate all the comments about my concerns of my itching breast. This cream has helped stop the itching but I am still in search of a new doctor and another oppion. We must all take charge of our own bodies and needs when it comes to the getting the care we all need. Please read the my previous post about Inflammatory Breast Cancer it could save your life or someone you love.

I hope you are having a great week and let me know what you think of my first review. It was nice to be contacted about having this giveaway. If you win you will love the biscuits plus the the butter dish and knife are really nice. Your $15.00 gift card can be spent anyway you wish to spend it.

Love to all

I would dip these babies in butter then a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon then bake.
LOL!! You asked how I would serve them and this is it !! yummmmmmmm

Debby said...

I think those biscuits would make a great chicken pot pie.
So glad you are trying to find a new doctor. 9(((HUGS))))

Kim said...

Ooooh, warm from the oven and dripping with molasses. Yumm. I love that you can just take out what you need. I can't wait to see them in the stores.

Linda said...

Wow, what a nice give-away! I use them because there is just the hubs and me, and the ones that come in the round tin are too many. I usually have to throw some of them away.

Susan said...

Yum! With butter and honey...dripping on my arm as I eat them!
I'm glad to hear they're good. I've seen them and wondered.

sjmcdowell said...

Hi dear Maggie,

So happy the cream is helping you and yes another Dr.'s opinionwould be a very good idea!!!

Yummy Bisquits...I would serve them with my favorite Homemade Chili....Mmmm Sooo Good!!

Love and Hugs,


The Paper Princess said...

Dear Maggie,

It's been way too long since we've chatted so it's a delight to read your awesome review and see that you are managing to keep your spirits up in the midst of a very difficult situation!

I am a traditionalist so piping hot with butter and jam suits me just fine, but I am loving reading everyone's serving suggestions - your readers are making me hungry, lol!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend, and stop on over whenever you have a free moment!


Lisalulu said...

you had me at 70 calories! that is how I would eat them!

bunny said...

Commercials? Where have I been? Biscuits? I don't need no stinkin' giveaway to get biscuits...they are foods from the gods...that's the problem...too many biscuits. 70 calories each X 10 everyday...that's only 700 calories a day...I can live with that.
Sorry about your itchy body parts...hopefully the cream AND the biscuits will

I miss you woman!!


Haven said...

I love them with pot roast!!! MmmMMmmm.

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Could we import those to London where they don't really have the concept of quick and easy breakfast foods figured out yet? I imagine not, although we carried some frozen Jimmy Dean sausage back in a little thermos on our our last trip over. Back in Texas, I would serve them with sausage and gravy. yum!


Mami2jcn said...

I'd love these with fried chicken!

Libbie said...

Hey Mags! I missed you itching breast & so i am glad to get caught up now! Good for you for getting another opinion!!! I will make sure I keep you in my prayers! & how IS Gary? I hopw his spirits are up as he is going thorugh this. & look at you making him him breakfast & loving him up. You are both so blessed to have each other!

Those little biscuts DO look good & in fact make me wish for a warm breakfast too! I love how the gift certificate is paired with that little basket! How cute! I think I might need a little bread basket! But you have already taken care of me! I am still so thankful for that fudge Maggie!

I better get going & get the troops up soon! It is going to be a busy day! Take Care!

Arkansas Patti said...

Next time you talk to Pillsbury, ask them what happened to the Flaky Biscuits that were freezer to plate? I loved them but can't find them anymore.
Good idea about using them for sliders. I make a burger slider on dinner rolls(one is all I get)and the biscuit might be a nice twist.
Hope you are getting a second opinion. Take care gal.

Nezzy said...

Woohoo, it would be great to put some ease in my life. I've got that Hubs so spoiled he won't eat anything from a box or a can. Ya think I could 'fool' him with these??? This chick is tired and would sure give it the old college try! I'm sneaky that way....Heeehehehe!

God bless ya'll and have a beautiful day :o)

meeyeehere said...

You did great on your review!!
I love that picture of your mom in the side,she reminds me of all the old and wonderful pictures of my grandmother.I miss her.
I worry about breast cancer all the time.My grandmother died from it.

Mari said...

We would serve the biscuits topped with gravy.

Karen Whittal said...

I would give each of my OVC children one, probably the one and only delicious thing they would have eaten this year. I can just see there smiling faces, when they get one hot from the oven...........

Sue said...

I think my family would like the sliders you made for Gary.

Fun giveaway, Maggie! Take care, okay?


Tammy said...

Melted butter and apple butter and big cold glass of chocolate favorite breakfast.

Glad you seem to be feeling a little better (back-wise, now if you could get the front-wise straightened out!)

Kristen said...

They'd like them baked on top of chicken stew.

that's so awesome! i guess we will have
to call you miss pillsbury? this is so fun!

yaya said...

You have a great career in advertising Maggie! That was a wonderful review...I would make little biscuits and gravy, something my hubby loves but I never make...poor guy! I need to answer some questions you asked on my blog. once asked about the CSN giveaway I won. I bought a slipcover for my livingroom couch. I really love it too. I blogged about it. It had to do with my bent finger situation. asked about the blog book. I used "". There are other companies that make blog books, but this one was more reasonable and it was very easy. Their website explains how to do it. You could also try ""..I use my books as journals. Pictures and everything! I passed along your breast info to a coworker who has had a rash on her breast for a bit now and no one really knows what to do for her. She uses some anti-itch cream. She's going to get it checked out. Thanks!

Garden of Egan said...

Wow! Our little girl got all grown up and did a giveaway. You did a fabulous job!
I think I'm off to go buy some right now.

Hope you've been doing well. I've been having computer issues and I've missed hanging out!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Just stopped by to say thanks for visiting and following my blog! This giveaway is a terrific idea; I never liked biscuits until I tried Pillsbury's frozen ones, but they're just a tad too big for me. This new mini-size, at only 70 calories is PERFECT! I ca just taste them with fresh peach preserves, or at Thanksgiving, sliced and spread with butter and leftover turkey. YUM! Even if I don't win, I will be trying them out!

(By the way, did you mean OCTOBER 17, or is it September 17 of next year?)

Tracy R said...

With sausage and country gravy!

jeri said...

Boy the butter and honey sounds great but I know I love watching my granbabies eat them with butter and dipping them into some mashed potatoes! They then have big smiles with very full mouths, it is so precious! Of course, they usually sleep pretty well not long after! Thanks!

Brenda Kula said...

Yum! I'm glad you said what the calories were, because I'm kind of trying to lose weight. I'd put some honey on those and let them drip down my chinny-chin-chin!

Sharon said...

I'd serve them with some jimmy dean sausage!

LAMusing said...

I'd love these with butter and blackberry jam :)

Norma said...

Yum - biscuits and gravy! I love you can just use as many as you need - with only 2 of use a large can of biscuits is usually a waste.

Jenna Wood said...

We love our Pillsbury Grands with Chili on top!

We'd have them for breakfast - with butter and scrambled egg

shirley said...

I would use them in my fast chicken and dumplings, after I tried one with honey.

Tam said...

Hey Maggie great of you to have this giveaway.
I myself think its a great idea to do reviews and giveaways.
Especially when there is food involved..haha
I am waiting on the cold weather and you have your candy
These mini grands are just the thing for me and I usually have them with my coffee while getting ready for work.
Just wondering how does Ms. Pearl like them and is she doing okay.
Please go to another doctor soon. I have heard of this Inflammatory Breast Cancer and you don't dare ignore any signs.
Well girlfriend got to go enjoy your weekend
Post about it for us

Liz said...

They'd love some strawberry shortcake!

Julie said...

Thanks for the them with my mom's homemade strawberry jam plopped on top

Brighid said...

Great, give me biscuits and homemade pepper jelly, or make that pomogrante jelly, or clover honey, or biscuits to go while driving the harvester, or biscuit with egg by the woodstove, or biscuits in the barn shared with the best cowdog in the world ... Geez, now I'm really hungry.

skkorman said...

The biscuits would go great with my turkey chili!
