The Hip Hostess Apron Giveaway (Recipe: Peanut Butter Pancakes)


Post Update – The Random Number Generator winner of The Hip Hostess Apron giveaway is…. Melissa from Baking for the Boys. Congrats, Melissa! I hope you love your apron as much as I love mine!

When I was little, my parents called my Grubby Gert. I came by that nickname quite honestly, from what I’ve been told. My mom would get me bathed, all dressed up, and clean from head to toe and within a few minutes I would be a complete mess. I was a dirt magnet and loved to be grubby. You could have probably placed me in a white, clean, sterile room and I would come out covered in something from head to toe.

Over time, not a whole lot has changed. I honestly try to stay clean most of the time, but when I am in the kitchen, staying pristine is not my forte. Remember, I’m a “licker”, so I’ll often have the evidence of some kind of batter dripped on my shirt. I’ve been known to walk up to school to pick up the kids, only to get back home, look in the mirror, and discover I had flour all over me. What can I say? I get caught up in the cooking moment and work with wild abandon when I am in the kitchen.

Lucky for me, I won a gorgeous apron a few weeks ago from The Hip Hostess and now I am able to keep at least my clothes fairly clean when I am in the kitchen. My new apron is taking a bit of a beating, but that’s ok…. it looks great on, it cleans up well, and it is no worse for wear after I’m done with it for the day. The Hip Hostess Aprons are beautiful, quality sewn, and made with a lot of pride (if you don’t believe me, just look at how much care is put into the packaging and shipment of your apron to you!)

I’m excited to let you know that The Hip Hostess has offered one of Dine & Dish’s readers the chance to stay a little cleaner in the kitchen by winning one of the their Demi Style Aprons. I’m going to make it so simple for you to enter. All you have to do is head over to The Hip Hostess website, check out their Demi Style aprons, and then come back to this post and leave a comment letting me know which apron you like the best. Easy peasy.

I had these ingredients all over my Hip Hostess apron by the time we sat down to breakfast this morning. Peanut Butter Pancakes. Another one of those “almost too good to call breakfast” breakfast dishes! (Imagine alternating the Peanut Butter Pancakes with the Chocolate Cocoa Pancakes…. oh my yum!)

    Oooh…it’s a toss up between the Melon Splash and Chocolate Mint. If I win one…I may just have to purchase the other..haha! I was very similar to you as a child…ALWAYS dirty. And I’m rotten in the kitchen too spilling things on myself! ha!

    I have to say they make me think of Father Knows Best only better. They are all so cute but I am a Melon Splash girl.

    The pancakes look amazing and will probably be added to next weeks menu

    What I really need is a non-demi-style apron – I’m more apt to get stuff on my shirt than on my pants – BUT that Merri Mixers one is so adorable that it makes up for the fact that my top half will still be a mess. No one will notice. They’ll be all “Hey, you’ve got some… OOH, CUTE APRON!”
    .-= camille´s last blog ..Cajun Bean Soup =-.

    I like the Avocado A La Mode or the Cherry Me one. I’d be happy to have any one of them though since they are so cute!

    I have certain outfits that i use to bake in – this would be so much better! I love the Merri Mixer or the Pink Sorbet!

    My kitchen is always a mess these days, as we just became foster parents. Yesterday it was cupcakes with sprinkles…today it was chicken soup! I love the cherry one…my kitchen color is red (red mixer, red toaster, red potholders!).

    I love the Hip Hostess! I have purchased several as gifts from them. My favorite, though is my demi black ala mode…my head sous chef has the matching one!

    I would love to add avocado ala mode to my collection!
