Workweek Breakfast: Three Ingredient Cereal Bars

I tend to skip breakfast during the week because I sleep in for as long as possible and by the time I drag myself out of bed, there just isn't time. So, I found this simple recipe for cereal bars and decided to give it a try. These are perfect for kids too. One batch makes 9 bars.


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 cups of Cheerios

Combine the peanut butter and honey in a large saucepan and heat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the Cheerios.

Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper and dump the mixture in. Flatten the top with a spoon.

Allow to set for about 1 hour then cut them into squares.

A Trip Back to Childhood

Growing up, Saved By The Bell was my favorite show. So, it's understandable that I freaked out a little when I saw this. If you're a SBTB fan like me, do yourself a favor and watch this... right now!

DIY: Burger Cupcakes

I'm calling this a DIY because these cupcakes are more of a project than a recipe. I actually used boxed cake mixes to make these and I'm glad I did because they took a while to put together. I made 4 dozen of them for Super Bowl and they took me about 3 hours. If you have the time, they're definitely worth the effort. I mean, how cute are they?

So here's how I did it...

Start by making a batch of chocolate cupcakes and a batch of yellow cake cupcakes (white would work too). Cut them all in half. I didn't use the chocolate tops. Instead, I saved them in a separate bag and I'm currently still eating them.

Make some vanilla buttercream frosting (I used this recipe) and divide it up into 3 bowls. Dye them red, green, and yellow.

Now place the frosting into ziploc bags and cut a small piece off of the corner to form piping bags. Stack the chocolate bottom on top of the yellow cupcake bottom and pipe the "condiments" on. Form a square for the cheese and just do squiggles for the ketchup and lettuce.

Place the yellow cake top on top of the frosting and smush it down a little. I used toothpicks to hold it all together.

Add sesame seeds (or white nonpareils) to the top if you like. Unfortunately I ran out of time but I think they look great either way.
