With kids at home on vacation, I want to start my day with a filling breakfast. I want to make sure that we have the energy for all the activities that we’ll be doing for the day and breakfast is very important. Avocado is one of my favorite fruit because not only is it delicious, it’s also packed with nutrients. Whenever avocado is in season, I make sure to make guacamole to take advantage of its health benefits. Another great way to use avocado is for breakfast. By adding this fruit to your sandwich, you can have a nutritious and more filling breakfast that will power you up for the day.
Making an avocado breakfast sandwich is super easy, and it’s even a great sandwich on the go recipe. My family loves this for breakfast or lunch. Don’t worry it’s super easy to make and only takes a few minutes, so check out below on how to make an avocado sandwich recipe.

I love the smell of waffles in the morning. The anticipation of that first melt in your mouth warm bite drenched in sweet syrup.
I love waffles soaked in syrup. That is until my son started reading the labels for everything he eats. It’s funny, you teach them to eat healthy and how to make good food choices but suddenly when they start practicing what you have taught them you wish they would have just left your syrup alone.
Once he started reading the label and I had to endure the lecture about high fructose corn syrup, I decided I had to give up my sweet, sticky, yummy syrup. Luckily, I did a little research and found a healthier alternative.
If there is one thing I love, it’s an easy breakfast recipe! Unlike me, my husband and daughter are not morning people. They like to get up around late morning and just hang around allowing themselves to wake up on their own time. (Must be nice right!?). But they do however love breakfast foods. So on weekends I like to make a yummy breakfast for them when they wake up.
One of my daughters favorite foods is strawberry so I try to make sure I incorporate it when I can. I wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but didn’t have some like I thought I did, so I decided to get a little creative and make some of my own! And let me tell you, these Strawberry Rolls that I came up with tasted awesome. I just knew I had to share it with you. I hope you enjoy!Continue reading

It is the time of night when the creatures come out. Wait let me start over it is the time of night when you are done cooking, cleaning, organizing, preparing, and mitigating life. It is the time of night that you want a snack. You do not need a big snack, but you want something packed tightly with taste. You aren’t the only one with this desire.
You are a mind reader. You are the next Julia Child. You are the parent that knows the one sentence that will fly out of their mouth after dinner without fail is, “What is for dessert?”
You have anticipated this and not only did you create wholesome cereal recipes, but you are ready to serve them. Ha! They can serve themselves, you deserve a rest. You have tackled a laundry pile that makes Mount Rushmore look like a hill. You have cleaned the floor, or maybe you haven’t and yes that bathroom rug does look nice in the dining room. You have done your duty, and now it is time for you and your family to taste the recipe you made with Malt-O-Meal® Cinnamon Toasters Cereal.
Hours earlier this happened.
You search your brain and your cabinets and as usual, they are empty with the exception of cereal. Why? The Malt-O-Meal cereal was on sale at Food Lion, and since your kids love it, you stocked up. You have three different varieties: Cinnamon Toasters, S’Mores, and Golden Puffs.
You have thrown dinner in the crockpot because it is an epic night of car pool, homework, and sports. You want tasty, and you want easy. You also want dessert. You deserve dessert, but you want something you can make quickly.
This is the sale I took advantage of:
In-store Catalina offer at Food Lion (ends 9/30):

You think to yourself, “how long does it take yogurt to freeze?”
I have enough time, and this is the perfect solution to my dessert dilemma. Guess what, my kids loved this dessert so much they began eating it for breakfast and for a snack. I didn’t care because these are nutritious cereal recipes.
Cookie sheet with a lip
3 Cups of your favorite Malt-O-Meal cereal we used Cinnamon Toasters
1 large container of Greek yogurt use the full-fat version
1 cup of berries
1/4 cup of jelly
Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper
Place the Cinnamon Toasters on the bottom of the cookie sheet
Pour the yogurt on top (I let the yogurt come to room temperature so I could spread it easily.)
Dice the fruit
Add the jam on top of the yogurt
Place the diced fruit on top of the yogurt and the jam
Place two tooth picks in the yogurt
Drape plastic wrap, so it doesn’t touch the yogurt
Freeze for two hours or until hard
Remove the yogurt from the freezer once it has set and break it into pieces. Once this is done, you can share. If you want.
You can change this recipe by changing the type of fruit and the type of Malt-O-Meal cereal for the bottom. You can also add honey instead of jam. The possibilities for this cereal recipe are endless.
Real Advice Gal Tip
If you want your dessert to last longer hide some for yourself in a container under the frozen vegetables.

As a parent, one of the things that tugs my heart is seeing my kids grow up so fast. I wonder if I was able to give them enough of my time or if I was able to make enough memories for them to cherish and remember with when they’re old. I don’t want to have any regrets. That is why I want to make the most out of our time with each other. Growing up is something that we can’t control, but making special memories is something that we can do.
I have to juggle parenting with work, and my kids’ schedules are also quite full with school, sports, and after-school activities. Combine those and we only have a few hours a day left to bond. That’s why I want everything that they do with me to be a memorable experience, and that includes eating meals. I try my best to reserve my weekends with my kids, it’s our time to make memories, to spend quality time together and we start with a fun and special breakfast. A breakfast that is an awesome experience for them instead of just an event of the day where they have to show up.
Now that Halloween is over, my home has switched in to full holiday mode. Yep, I’m one of those people that don’t mind that it’s the fist week of November and they are already playing Christmas music in the store. I love the feel of the holiday season. Cheer and goodwill, everyone seems to be a little nicer and happy. And I know that I will get to see some extended family that I don’t normally get to see during the rest of the year. Which means that I have a lot of cooking to do during the entire season. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day cooking wise, and I always like to make a big holiday breakfast for my family. One of my favorite recipes is my Biscuits and Gravy Casserole Recipe! It feeds a crowed, is easy to make, and tastes great. It’s perfect for your next holiday (or anytime really!) meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. Continue reading
