I make all kinds of complicated breakfast recipes on the weekends, but on the weekdays I am all about simplicity. One of my favorite things to do is stir a generous dollop of luscious smooth peanut butter into a hearty bowl of cream of wheat. It is an easy way to add protein and flavor to the most important meal of the day.
