Oatmeal or cereal, a piece of fruit and coffee.

Cereal Eats: A New Column Devoted To The Cereal-Obsessed

I am so excited for this. My favorite cereals as a kid were Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Fruity Pebbles. I still love them but more for a dessert or snack. For breakfast I like Frosted Mini Wheats, Kashi go lean crunch and Life.

American Classics: Strawberry Pretzel Salad

I love pretzel salad! My mom always makes it with pineapple on top though.

Earliest Food Memories

When I first learned how to make myself breakfast,( pancakes, eggs, french toast ) I distinctly remember feeling so proud. I felt like such an accomplished person when I made myself a plate of pancakes and sat down for some Saturday morning TV.

It's Harder Than it Looks

Scones. This light and flaky rumor I hear about intrigues me...

Cook's Illustrated: Yea or Nay?

I have to say, I actually really enjoy the magazines. They're great to read, the reviews are helpful and for the most part I want to make all of the recipes in them. Do I actually make them? Not so much. The few recipes I have made have been very good but I agree with the complaints. Stop asking me to use every single freaking utensil, pot and pan in my kitchen!!

I've never suscribed to the website, why would you with all of the recipes available for free on the internet now?

Chain Reaction: Cook-Out in North Carolina

Cook Out!! I think its a good thing I don't live close to one, their milkshakes are too good.

Everyday groceries?

Thanks so much for the help!

Foods everyone seems to like but you just can't get into....

@AJ12754, I completely agree with you. Adding bacon to add flavor, or one element to a dish is great. But plain bacon tastes burnt, and overly smoky.

I can't get into salmon. The flavor is just too fishy for me. Also roasted red bell peppers. Awful.

I can't believe I used to eat THAT!

American cheese and bologna sandwiches on white bread.

Where should I eat in Richmond?

Try Gutenburg Cafe and Mamma Zu. Enjoy!

What'd you get/give for valentine's?

Dark chocolate and pretzel M&Ms. Life is good.

Recap: Top Chef All-Stars, Episode 9, Feeding Fallon

I know Carla is a favorite for most but I have to say, I get really tired of her, um, personality. She is by no means my least favorite but I just don't think I could be in a kitchen with her. Richard and Antonia, FTW.

Foodie Confessions

THANK you for bringing up the salters! I have to bite my tongue every time I see it. Also, I ate a pack of poptarts last month, and it had been years since I last had one. I thought it would taste artificial, too sweet, stale.....nope it was pretty much awesome!

Kind of gross, and I probably shouldn't eat it, but can't resist

Lean Cuisine frozen pizza, particularly the barbeque flavor. I know it can't compare to most pizza out there but I find them strangely I eat it a couple times a month

This Week in America's Test Kitchen: Chicken Pot Pie with Crumble Topping

I made this last week! It was great, very homey and comforting.
