We figured since we had been giving you all so many sweet treats that we would provide not only a healthy option but a good one too.



Belvita Breakfast Biscuits

Growing up our parents told us we couldn’t have cookies for breakfast. Well Nabisco has decided that cookies for breakfast is a perfect way to start the day. These breakfast biscuits are sweet, crunchy and baked. There are four biscuits to a pack and they come in three different flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry,and Golden Oat.

Nutritious Sustained Energy: The biscuits are specially baked to release carbohydrates through out your body and keep you energized.

Grab & Go: Quick snack for you to grab when you are on the go. You don’t always have time to fix a full breakfast.

Healthy: Great source of fiber and B Vitamins, packed with 18 grams of whole grain.

No artificial flavors, sweeteners, no high fructose corn syrup just real fruit and whole grain oats.

Pair it with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit to make a refreshing breakfast or mid-morning snack.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Taste Test Tuesday. As always feel free to provide any feedback.

Until next time….


Taste Test Tuesday: Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Bread with Pecan Pumpkin Butter

Happy Tuesday Everyone! We’re so glad you decided to stop by and visit with us today. We took a trip to William-Sonoma to see what they had in store for the holidays. We were having a craving for pumpkins. While in the store we found Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Bread with a Pecan Pumpkin Butter.

Williams-Sonoma Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Quick Bread Mix

You can get them separately for $11.95 each or together as a set for $21.00. All you add is two eggs, a melted stick of butter and water to the mix, stir, then bake. Our kitchen smelled amazing during the hour it was in the oven. Imagine trying to take bread out the oven with two other adults and a toddler staring at you wanting to savor the spiced pumpkin goodness.

Once we got it out the oven and let it cool for a minute, everyone dug in. You can taste the crunchy pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg and just a hint of ginger. Add on some of the Pecan Pumpkin butter and it was heavenly. A smooth texture with a little crunch of the pecans, we tried it on biscuits, toast, bagels, french toast (pumpkin bread) and even added on sugar cookies.

This was definitely a snack that we enjoyed . The bread and butter each come with additional recipes of items you can try with them. If you do not have a William-Sonoma store in your area you can order these items and more from their website. Just click the button on the sidebar of our blog.

As always we thank you for stopping by the kitchen today. If you have a product or something you would like us to try on Taste Test Tuesday please feel free to contact us. We love to eat!!
