Betty Crocker Maple Bacon and Candy Corn Frostings, reviewed

Betty Crocker Maple Bacon Frosting

There are all kinds of seasonal candies on the market, but candies aren’t the only products that get a seasonal twist. Almost everything in the baking aisle – from sprinkles to cake mixes – changes to suit the seasons and give you some alternatives to plain vanilla and rainbow sprinkles for every time of year.

Cranberry Pecan Shortbread Tart

Cranberry Pecan Shortbread Tart

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Muffin Mix, up close

Cereal – usually with fresh fruit on top – is my go-to breakfast on weekdays. Honey Nut Cheerios are one of my staples (because they go so well with bananas and berries), but I have a weakness for Cinnamon Toast Crunch and will occasionally sneak a box into my shopping cart at the grocery store. I liked it as a kid and still like that ... Read More »

Cake mixes usually come in very predictable flavors, across all brands and all price points, even when the texture and ingredients of the cakes vary a bit. The cake and cookie mixes from Peanut Butter & Co are a little bit different because their premium mixes focus on peanut butter.
