It’s Going Down for Cereal

I love cereal – any and every kind. As far back as I can remember, I hardly ever ate anything else for breakfast. In the morning before school I could easily wolf down two huge bowls of Life, Rice Krispies, Frosted Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, Cheerios, Froot Loops, you name it. My cereal addiction didn’t stop when I got to college but I just couldn’t manage to get myself to the dining hall before my 9am classes. Easy solution – keep cereal and milk in my dorm room. Big problem – cereal at the campus convenience store was obscenely expensive and I was going through over a box a week. Finally, parents’ weekend rolled around some time in October and my parents took me to Costco to stock up. We brought back somewhere between 15-20 boxes of cereal to my dorm room and then realized that, oh yeah, dorm rooms are TINY. My roommate happened to be gone for the weekend and she came back Sunday night to a room packed with cereal boxes in every nook and cranny. I’m not kidding; there were boxes under my bed, stacked up in the back of the closet, behind the TV, between my desk and my dresser, and god knows where else.

This the Type of Pie to Make the Hood Go Crazy

Guess who’s back, back again… So I haven’t blogged in a ridiculously long time and I really have no excuse, especially since it’s not like I’ve stopped making amazing desserts whenever I get the chance. If you follow me on Instagram (follow me on Instagram! @startedfromthebatter), you know that I’ve made some baller cakes in the past few months and also, this INSANE Peanut Butter Ice Cream Oreo Pie. I made it for the first time in mid-May and since then I’ve made it three more times. I’ve never made the same thing so often in such a short period of time and I’ve also never gotten as many compliments as I have on this dessert. Let me break it down for you: Oreo pie crust, homemade peanut butter ice cream (easy and you don’t need an ice cream maker), layered with hot fudge and Oreos. It’s peanut butter and Oreo overload and I swear if you make it you will not regret it.
