I got lucky. All my kids loved hot cereal. Specially in the winter. They were always trying to outdo each other with their toppings. Pirate has been eating Cream of Wheat for the past month. He stays very close to his childhood memories. And Cream of Wheat is right at the top.

It was the first solid food I fed all my kids. Spike cooks a whole box for just one meal. His idea of a snack.

We never used this for anything but hot breakfast cereal.

I just recalled that the brand name we had most often was Malt-O-Meal. Same thing as Cream of Wheat, just different company.

Exactly. I doubt very much that there are people who know about this recipe, even in Russia. But that's the beauty of it. Make a side dish that nobody ever had.

I find it kind of bland as cereal. My ex found a recipe for an Indian dessert called halvah. It was wonderful. I have tried looking on the intertubes, but haven't found it, only stuff with carrots and there were no carrots in this. I would love to find that recipe again.

Halvah? Halvah is a dessert, right. It s made either from sunflower seeds or sesame seeds. It is not just Indian. It is supper popular in Russia and all over middle east. Sold in every European/Russian stores here. Russian stores for sure, some times they called Europeans though.

It was nothing like that halvah. I had mentioned that I loved halvah. That was why he made that dessert when he came across the recipe. Boy was I surprised when he took it out of the fridge.

Sounds like you have definitely been "Americanized totally Charlie!.

Here is a site from the makers of Cream of Wheat that you just might be interested in.
