Cereal Treats For Two (or one)


I just had this craving for something sweet while watching Ally McBeal on Netflix and needed to get creative since I don't have anything already made.  Thinking about what I have in the pantry I realized I could make some cereal treats but didn't need a whole batch.  I had wheat chex (or Aldi brand whatever they are called), always seem to have marshmallows, and of course,  butter....Voila!

Cereal treats for 2 (or 1)
1 tbsp butter
1 cup marshmallows
2 cups cereal

Melt butter 30 sec. in microwave
Add marshmallows, microwave 30 more seconds
Add cereal and stir.

You are welcome.  Enjoy!

VeeSap LifeStyle Grill Brush Review


Grilling season is in full swing!  If your family is anything like ours then most of our meals are now being cooked on the grill.  With that increased use comes increased dirt.  We have purchased many grill brushes over the years and have never really been satisfied.  We were either scared of bristles coming out into our food or it just never really scrubbed enough.  I was contacted to review The VeeSap LifeStyle Grill brush and it has been a real hit with hubby!

The VeeSap LifeStyle Grill brush has a durable and twisted wire surface that will help you to quickly remove the burnt on residue, making cleaning your grill as easy as it has ever been. The spiral bristles penetrate between and through the grill grates, leaving your grill clean and unscratched without having to burn your hands.  With the new and improved woven wire design, worry no more about bristles landing in your food.

This brush can be used on all grill makes including Weber, Broil King, Brinkman, Broil-Mate, Napoleon Gourmet Grills and ALL Grill Types, especially Porcelain, Stainless steel, Infrared, charbroil gas and charcoal grills.  With the easy to clean brush, you will be able to scrape that stubborn grease off of your grill without scratching it.
The brush came in a storage bag and was well wrapped before opening it.  It worked very well on our Weber grill.  This is my husband's baby so he is very careful about what touches it but he was impressed with the awesome handle length and comfort of use.

The handle is 18'' inches long, and had an ergonomic weather resistant handle design. The handle is long enough to be used by both hands. The VeeSap LifeStyle Grill brush is designed to clean all the accumulated grease in all those tough areas without adding strain or pressure on your wrists or burning you knuckles!

 Another great thing about this grill brush is that it is easy to clean and can fit easily in your dishwasher.  You can sit down sooner to eat with your family knowing that it took you less time to clean the grill with 3 times the scrubbing power.

The sturdy handle and innovative bristle design will extend the life-time of your grill and save you the hassle of buying a new one.  They even have a 100% money back guarantee + 5 year warranty + free replacement guarantee.
