Top Ten Tuesday: Rice Cakes

Rice cakes get a bad rap.  Take the following conversation, for example:

Mom: Kat, I know you put rice cakes on the grocery list, but I didn’t buy any because I didn’t know what flavor you would want.

Dad: Flavor?  Rice cakes?  That’s like saying that you couldn’t buy saw dust because you couldn’t remember our favorite flavor!
