    Have you been to your local supermarket and had your child stop in her tracks to stare longingly at a box of her favorite cereal? Apparently, it's not a Pavlovian response to what's inside -- it's our kids being mesmerized by the characters on the package looking right into their eyes.

    Conveniently, these tantalizing boxes of breakfast goodness just happen to be at eye level, begging our children to pay attention to them. This, according to a new study, is all on purpose.

    Like we needed yet ANOTHER reason to swing by our local Krispy Kreme. It was just announced that the masters of donut magic have created two new flavors to lure us in. This way, we can have our coffee with our donuts -- literally.

    For a limited time only the donut giant will be offering newfangled flavor sensations as the Mocha Kreme Doughnut and the Caramel Coffee Kreme Doughnut. Seriously, they had me at mocha -- the caramel and coffee are just added bonuses.

    So how do Krispy Kreme's new coffee donuts taste?

    Bread gets a bad rap these days. I've almost stopped eating it myself. Somewhere in the mix of the anti-gluten trend and all those carb-hating diets, eating bread has practically become the new smoking. But is it really that terrible? I've been eating it again lately, and amazingly enough, I am suffering no terrible health effects! So if you miss bread, too, let's talk about those bad bread myths -- and how you can eat your bread and stay healthy, too.

    Breakfast is basically the perfect food, amirite? Not even just a particular breakfast item, but breakfast in general. Especially since bacon is traditionally considered a breakfast food. And breakfast is also full of carbs, which we all know are God’s gift to humanity.

    So let’s take carbs, add some cream and eggs, fry it, wrap it in bacon, smother it in maple syrup, and dust it with powdered sugar. Did your taste buds just die reading that? Mine are dead because I am eating bacon wrapped French toast bites as I’m writing this. Try not to be too jealous -- you can make your own!

    It's winter, and it's cold. This means I'm eating oatmeal. Lots and lots of oatmeal, every single morning. (Steel cut with maple syrup -- you?) So while I enjoy my morning mush I've been wondering, as long as this wonderful stuff is in my pantry, is there anything else I could do with it? Of course there is! And some of these creative uses for oatmeal are especially helpful in the winter winter.

    For some moms, breakfast is about to get a whole lot less scary. General Mills announced that it has stopped using GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in Cheerios cereal. In a blog post Thursday, they said they have already started phasing out GM cornstarch and sugar, and that the oats they use were never from GM seeds. Smaller food companies have gone GMO-free, but this is the biggest non-organic brand to say no to GMOs. It's an announcement that has food activists cheering and everyone else scratching their heads. What the heck are GMOs, anyway? Is this something moms need to worry about? Or is this just a bunch of hype?

    Song makers insisted on giving us 12 days of Christmas, so there's no reason why we can't treat ourselves to at least 12 days of delicious Christmas eating. Whether you make these tasty banana eggnog pancakes on Christmas morning, or in the lazy wintry days that follow, you'll smile each time you take a bite and remember the good times you've been having with family and friends.

    And, aside from all of the many sentimental excuses you'll have to make these pancakes, there's a perfectly practical reason behind them, as well: what else are you going to do with all of that eggnog you bought that's just sitting in your fridge? These pancakes are the ideal solution to your eggnog problems!

    Now that we're all hunkering down for a cozy week of cooking for the big holiday, you know what sounds delicious? Starting it all off with a stack of pancakes. We all know how the classic buttermilk pancake hits the spot. But since it's autumn, I thought I'd look around for some pancake recipes with fall flavors. These pancakes should make you think of autumn leaves, pumpkin pie, and that cozy feeling you get waking up on a holiday morning.

    When was the last time you poured yourself a tall glass of ice-cold whole milk? If you're like most of us, it's probably been since you were a kid. Nowadays it's all about skim milk, even for kids. Cartons of whole milk in school cafeterias have been swapped out for skim. Good luck finding full-fat yogurt. Everywhere you look, dairy products have gone skinny. And you know what? It's a double tragedy. Not only is skim less delicious than whole milk, it's not even better for you. In fact, switching from whole to skim can be an unhealthy choice.

    I've known this for a long time -- I just mentioned it in a post on foods we thought are unhealthy but are actually good for us. But it turns out I didn't even know the half of it. Study after study, it is slowly dawning on doctors and nutritionists that skim milk may not be the best choice for us after all.
