I have one recipe that is my all time go to dessert recipe…The ingredients always seem to be available in my pantry. When ever I make it and take it to a party, I am asked for the recipe…and yes I can rattle it off with no problem. The recipe is a family hand me down…but if you look it up on the internet you will find dozens of variations on the original. It is known by a variety of names; peanut butter clusters, trash, white trash and crack.
2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
1 cup Chunky Peanut Butter
1 cup Mini Marshmallows
1 pkg Almond Bark
Combine Cheerios and mini marshmallows in a large bowl. Coarsely chop white bark, place in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1-1 1/2 minutes stirring once. Stir in chunky peanut butter until mixture is smooth. Pour over dry mixture and stir until cereal is completely coated. Working quickly, use two teaspoons…scoop a rounded teaspoon of mixture, use second spoon to help drop the sticky mixture onto wax paper. Allow clusters to dry before storing in an airtight container.

A cake in a cup…who figured this one out? No more guilt from eating your way through an entire cake in a weekend. Now you can have a piece of cake anytime…now that I think about it, this could be a bad thing. A really bad thing. a piece of cake only a minute away.
This is a recipe for a single serving of cake baked in a coffee cup.
1 box of Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box of Cake Mix (any flavor)
1 gallon size Ziploc storage bag
1 small microwave safe dish or coffee cup
3 tablespoons of cake mix
2 tablespoons of water
Add the two boxes of cake mix together in a Ziploc storage bag. Mix well. Add 3 tablespoons of cake mix and 2 tablespoons of water to a microwave safe container. Place container in the microwave for 1 minute.
Remove the cake from the cup…top with a dollop of whipped cream and a fresh strawberry or eat it plain. I rather like plain cake.
I changed the original recipe…I doubled the recipe and cooked the mixture in the microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds.
Cake in a Cup for One!

Tomorrow,Valentines Day, my husband and I will celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary. I thought I would make a special breakfast for us this morning!
I discovered a new foodie blogger who had me at egg + cupcake tin…epicureanbliss… BAKED EGGS!!! You probably have already met her, she was freshly pressed a week or so ago. I was inspired to try this dish before I even finished reading her post. I have been planting the idea with my dear husband trying to prepare him for what was to come. Sooner or Later! Today was the day!
There are so many variations for this simple recipe. You can serve it straight up for breakfast. Simply let the egg do all of the talking.
You could serve it for brunch. Just add a few diced veggies to the bottom of the tin for a little punch of color.
You could serve this for dinner. Add a slice of ham for a baked egg Quiche, serve with warm bread with an olive oil dipping sauce and a side of sautéed french beans.
I am already planning this as my contribution to my next girls weekend getaway!
I hope you will give this simply delightful dish your own spin and let me know how it goes. Bon Apetit!
