About Me

Hello there and welcome!

My name is Nicole, and I am a frugal momma and a creative chef in the kitchen.

After being a SAHM for 7 years and traveling around the country, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks for stretching a dollar in the kitchen.

I’ve had my personal finance website for a few years now, helping people to manage debt and save money on groceries and meal planning. But I was missing the fun of actually sharing recipes with them. So I created BeeyondCereal.com.

Here at BeeyondCereal, my goal is to teach and share incredible and tasty recipes that are healthy, frugal, and fun. Although, they may not check off all 3 boxes at once- I do enjoy my carbs and chocolate! (What girl doesn’t?) 😉

If I can inspire even one person to branch out and try something new, I will have considered this entire site worth it.

More about me,

My husband and I met in 2012 through a wrong number text message. 3 days into dating and he moved in. 3 months into that and we were married. 2 years later, we were stationed across the country (he was Army) and my frugal kitchen cooking took on a whole new meaning.

I discovered cooking from scratch to make my favorite dishes and I learned how to bake amazing bread. Although, with carpal tunnel, I have to admit- the bread machine does the hard work for me so I can have the fun without the wrist pain.

With my oldest child now getting more interested in cooking and baking, I’ve opened this website up to include a “for kids” section. Recipes that are either so easy that a kid can make them, or that are designed to impress the little ones.

I hope you enjoy the versatility of delicious foods on here and come back for more as there will always be a great amount of content being added!
