Cereal lasagna starts the day

June 15, 2005


No time for breakfast? Think again. Here's a quick and healthful breakfast lasagna idea from the National Watermelon Promotion Board:

Place 1 1/3 cups of cornflakes in an even layer in the bottom of an 8-inch-by-8-inch serving dish. Mix together 2 cups of watermelon, 2 cups of fresh blueberries and 2 cups of vanilla yogurt.

Spoon half of the mixture over the cornflake layer evenly. Sprinkle another 1 1/3 cups of cornflakes over the yogurt mixture. Layer the remaining yogurt mixture on top of the cornflakes and top with another 1 1/3 cups of cornflakes. Serves 6.

Hot stuff

Steven Raichlen has become a grilling guru through his classes, cookbooks and television appearances. Now the chef has unveiled a new line of barbecue tools and accessories.

Developed in partnership with manufacturing company the Companion Group, the Best of Barbecue line includes 50 products ranging in price from a $3.99 tin of wood chips to $39.99 for a cast-iron Tuscan grill. Two-pronged bamboo skewers ($8 for 16) help hold vegetables in place and an innovative rib rack (photo) holds a whole rack of ribs upright ($25).

Look for the products in gourmet and specialty cookware stores nationwide. For more information, visit
