Cinnamon-Apple Overnight Oats

So, I have a lot of oat recipes on the blog. I eat oatmeal in some form almost every single day, even on the weekends. If I’m not eating oatmeal, it’s because I’m traveling or because I’m going out for breakfast/brunch…which doesn’t happen all that often. And that’s ok. It’s comforting to know that whatever […]

Chai Apple Oatmeal

Ok, ok it has happened. I am fully embracing fall. Bring on the flannel, the boots, the PSLs. But before you go full-on leaf raking, tailgating and pumpkin carving, make yourself a tasty bowl (or mug, as the case may be!) of this chai apple oatmeal. Before I ever liked coffee, I was a tea […]

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

This recipe came about one morning when we were running low on groceries and there was no fresh fruit in the house. Normally I’d be fine just throwing a handful of raisins into my oatmeal and calling it good, but I was looking for something a little more substantial and spotted a couple of carrots sitting […]

Peach-Blueberry Overnight Oats

Peach-blueberry overnight oats--making the best of summer fruits!

Oatmeal is one of my favorite foods, and I eat it for breakfast almost every day. In my breakfast rotation, there are two seasons of oatmeal: hot and cold. Right now, in the heat of July, I’m all about enjoying oats cold. That might mean mixing up big batch of meusli to eat all week, […]

Chicken & Bread Soup

Chicken and bread soup. Lent is coming up and I’ve been putting some thought into what I’d like to do for it. Most people think of Lent as a period of deprivation–fasting on holy days, avoiding meat on Fridays and Ash Wednesday, and denying yourself something you enjoy like chocolate or Facebook. It is those […]
