Fiber One-my experience 
 
Feb. 28, 2012 2:41 pm 
As some of you may not know, I am part of a group here on AR, AllStar Allrecipe Ambassador program.  Each month, volunteerly, we have assignments to fulfil, trying products, incorporating them in creating new recipes, sharing our experiences, problems, concerns and accomplishments.  In turn, we are provided products (for free) for us to try.

This month was Fiber One original cereal..not bad at all!  It's very low calorie- 60 calories for 1/2 cup!! Made with whole grain wheat and corn bran-seriously delish on its own.  Delicate sweetness with a nutty taste with zero sugar.  It certainly goes great for dietary support in aspects.  I also liked eating it warm-nuking it with a touch of sweetener, almond milk and cinnamon. Simply delish.  Its very versatile in baking good such as bran muffins and savory items as I created a dish required as assignment (see below for recipe).  I was also required to make Fiber One Chocolate Peanut Butter Haystacks using their recipe here on AR.  THEY ROCKED!!  I loved them, my daughter loved them and passed them out for Valentine's 4th grade class-they gobbled them up!!  What kids didn't know-it was healthier than most candies!!  It was really good-crunchy, sweet, peanut buttery, chocolatey, and so easy to make.  As a single mom, I was able to squeeze this in on a very busy day-under 15 minutes to make! WHOA!! And ready to eat in less than five minutes!!  This is definitely a keeper and certainly recommend for you to try!  You can add anything to the recipe like raisins, coconut, nuts, sprinkles, etc. use your imagination!!

The cereal is uniquely packaged inside the box.  I wasn't expecting when I opened the box.  Instead of one bag like every cereal comes in, but two equally measured bags making up the total weight of cereal box.  I think its really a great idea, keeping it smaller portion, keeping the cereal fresher longer and great for cooking/baking measuring!  

I would certainly purchase Fiber One cereal in the future whether for breakfast as on its own or for my culinary needs!

About Me
I am a single mother of a terrific 9-year old little girl who is a finicky eater. I love to cook, bake, etc. but I am always dieting, so I don't make my favorite foods unless its special occasions. I am known for my famous decadent pastries, baked goods, especially CHOCOLATE!!! Any recipe I can do unless I don't have the tools. I love to collect antiques even old cookie molds that I use for my baking as well as a vintage clothing collector. I am a martha stewart at home, love to create and be artistic. I have lately been creative with recipes trying to create healthy, diet dishes that are tastey and not going on the waist with much success that also don't mess with my blood sugar and getting rave reviews from people in the local gym I attend.
My favorite things to cook
Anything my late Mother used to make for us kids (well, almost..still don't like liver!. I wish I had her cookbook but it was lost in a move years ago. I love making all slovak dishes my mother used to make and do it just from my head from watching her over the years in the kitchen. I hope I pass this to my daughter as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up in a european home, the tradition is in the kitchen, if you want to learn how to cook is to sit and watch. This was told to me by my mother as she was told to by her grandmother the same for generations. That's how they become such great cooks that no one could match.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I make bakery for special occasion, the satisfaction is the smiles on their faces. I have a reputation to keep up for my sweets!! For one function I attend, they always expect me to bring a rich, decadent chocolate dessert which every year is different from the last!!! I have a saying, "Homemade is Bettermade!" when people rave my goodies over any commercial goods. = ) in which gives me my motivation to even be better!
My cooking tragedies
I have had plenty and still do..when it comes to creativity or sometimes, have to re-do cake since I am a perfectionist..but that's how we learn, learn from our mistakes.
