Has there ever been a time when you wish you could turn the clock back and re-do it the right way from the start? I call these my do-over moments. I think I have these moments a little too often than not in the kitchen, especially when I am excited about trying a new recipe or tasting my newest creation. Even the smallest things make me wish I had more do-over moments. Like wishing I could have a do-over moment and choose to soak my piping tips in warm water, instead of just throwing them in the sink to later have to deal with scrubbing the stuck on icing in the tiny crevasses of the tip.

This post brought to you by Quaker Oats. All opinions are 100% mine.
There's a new snack bar by Quaker that combines decadent flavors with the nutrients to help fuel you any time of the day. The nutritious yet delicious Quaker Soft Baked Bar is great for breakfast on the go, an afternoon pick me up or a guilt free dessert. This new wholesome food is made with real fruits and nuts that you can even warm up in the microwave for a bakery style treat! They come in two new flavors, Banana Nut Bread made with real bananas and almonds, and Cinnamon Pecan Bread with crunchy pecans, chewy raisins, and cinnamon flavor in a delicious bar.
The cinnamon pecan bread bar would definitely be my favorite because I am a huge cinnamon fan! I would love to pop a couple of these in the toaster for my best friend and I as a healthy breakfast snack alternative to a warm cinnamon roll. These bars are packed with tasty ingredients and key nutrients to help provide fuel to start your day with only 140 calories and loaded with 5g of Fiber, 6g of Protein and an excellent source of 5 B-Vitamins so they would be the perfect morning treat to give us a boost of energy before a morning workout without the guilt of indulging.

These cute little graduation cupcake toppers are 100% edible and delicious. I made them out for chocolate and fruit flavored tootsie rolls for a festive graduation treat. They are really simple to make and can be used to top any kind of cupcake, cake, or sweet treat! Even customize them to fit your school colors by using different types of fruit chew candy.
