I guess I’ve dragged my feet long enough on fall baking. I miss fresh tomatoes, basil, cucumbers & zucchini already. And warmth, I miss warmth. I’ve already seen the first flurries of snow here in MI and I am not impressed.I do love fall squash though. A new phenomenon for me and now that I love it, I love it all the way. I’m mostly an all or nothing sort of girl in the food department. Read the rest of this entry

Where has my summer gone? I can’t believe it’s August. I’ve barely even shared with you this summer. Recipes or stories about how I am an outdoors woman now!It’s true. I’ve lived in the woods and survived without running/potable water, refrigeration, toilets, etc. Just us, some dehydrated food, a water filter and a shovel. Ok, and a few comforts such as a tent, hammock, comfy little chairs and some wine. Of course, I didn’t have popsicles but I survived with out homemade treats for 4 whole days.

Got a few ripe bananas laying around? You can make this quick easy cake! Are the oats you have on hand gluten free? Great! Then your cake will be, too.This cake is the result of a joking request from one of my oldest friends in the universe. Her sweet little baby girl will be a year old soon and she is on the hunt for a gluten free cake that is low sugar. Read the rest of this entry
In my head carrot cake is an Easter cake. I’m not sure why that is.
I don’t make carrot cake for Easter and I did not grow up with a carrot cake for Easter but they still kinda go to together in my world. Read the rest of this entry
I’m not sure why but, this time of year I really, really need breakfast food. Need it. Hearty stuff, too. Not just the fruit and yogurt I eat the rest of the year but waffles and omelets and potatoes and oatmeal. Stuff that weighs you down and fills you up all day.So this weekend we had our second annual waffle breakfast. Very fun and an easy way to entertain. Just borrow a couple of extra waffle makers from party guests and set out some waffle batter and imaginative topping. The rest takes care of itself. Let everyone loose in the kitchen and they cook their own breakfast while you sit back and enjoy your coffee! Ahhhh. . .I love to entertain like this! Read the rest of this entry
OK, it’s a little past peach season. Not that you can’t still get some good peaches but they won’t be at the peak of their sweetness. Fortunately, these are fried (or maybe unfortunately for my jeans) and the peaches will taste delicious in this yummy fritter batter regardless of the lateness of the season.It’s sort of an unspoken quest for Tim and I to try to find the most delicious apple fritter possible. Tim has a ‘thing’ for the apple fritter and I may lean toward other morning pastries but I still can appreciate a crispy bite of fritter perfection. Fyi, in case you ever have the urge to bring me breakfast – I lean toward almond filled croissants, cream filled long johns, coconut covered cake donuts and plain old raised glazed donuts.

Some days you need cinnamon rolls. Lots of them. Slathered in icing.
Back to oatmeal today. I do love the oats.
When I made this the first time it was not delicious. I had the wrong proportion or something and I was not impressed. I tweaked the recipe and came up with this version which was yummy so I thought I would share it with you.
