Fruity Krispy Treats
I cut the sweetness in half by using 3 cups of plain krispies and 3 cups of cocoa or fruity pebbles - and dry stirred the mix in a large bowl. For the cocoa mix, I used plain mini marhmallows with a 1/2 stick of butter, and for the fruity mix, I used fruity flavored mini marshmallows with 1 stick of butter (the artificial coloring probably affects the melting point). My pan wasn't big enough to stir all 6 cups into it, so I mixed what I could into the pan of melted butter and marshmallows, poured into a wax paper lined aluminum tray and patted down with another sheet of wax paper. I pull up on the entire wax paper to remove it from the aluminum tray and slice with an oiled pizza cutter,for easy slicing without scratching your bakeware.nDelicious treats for Teacher Appreciation week!

Fresh Tomato Salsa
I made sure to trim the ribs (white interior spines) of the pepper, so it wouldn't be overwhelmingly spicy. I couldn't wait an hour and set on the salsa within 15 minutes. I also used diced grape tomatoes, fresh dried cilantro from a jar (Litehouse brand) and the juice of 1 lime. Delish!!!

French Toast Casserole
4.5 for ease of preparation and simple ingredients. I used toasted cubes that were earmarked for bread crumbs, so it was a little crunchier. The video says to gently turn the bread in the liquid (eggs/milk) mix, but I decided to mix the bread cubes in the liquid mixing bowl, first, before pouring into the buttered casserole. Also, since the mix is supposed to soak into the bread for 10 minutes, I wouldn't turn on the oven at the start of prep, since it only takes 5 minutes to reach 350°. Great tasting and smelling!
