that’s a whole lot of Cs in the title! i love alliteration. and cereal. and cookies. i had the idea the other day to throw some chocolate chex into the dough of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.


i couldn’t get the thought out of my head.. so a few days later, i tried it out.

I love Chex. They may be my #1, or #2 after Cinnamon Toast Crunch. :) I never would have thought of these! Yum yum.

I baked blue raspberry sugar cookies for a friend. For myself, a bit healthier, I made chocolate sweet potato bread.

I baked blueberry muffins last weekend. Was craving lemon squares today, but was too lazy to mess up the kitchen. Maybe tomorrow!

To think yesterday I was patting myself on the back for throwing in some cocoa powder with my usual banana bread mix; your cereal cookies are truly creative!

Does oatmeal count as a cereal? That’s my favorite. And then probably Wheaties because my grandfather ate them every single day until he died and he used to offer to share them and us kids were like, “Yeah, Grandpop cereal!” They tasted terrible but it was special because we all worshiped him.
