    • Apple Cider Oatmeal Photo
    • Apple cider is one of those things I tend to drink in its pure form only, unless we’re talking about apple cider donuts (I could eat those things every day).

    • I have to admit, I totally get sucked into the pumpkin craze in the fall. Maybe because it only lasts for such a short time, (kind of like every other season, I suppose!) and it just tastes and feels so homey and comforting after all the cool, crisp, or grilled summer foods, but I also just absolutely …
  3. Oatmeal Bread Recipe

    • Oatmeal Toffee Cookies Photo

  21. Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies Recipe
    • Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies Photo
    • I’ve mentioned before that I am constantly on the lookout for snacks for my kids. Lunches, after school, on the run… they are constantly hungry. Enter breakfast cookies.

  26. Banana Oatmeal Cake with Berries Recipe
    • Banana Oatmeal Cake with Berries Photo
    • Banana oatmeal cake with berries for breakfast anyone? Yeah, the title of “cake” is maybe a little misleading. It’s probably not really a cake, but it looked like a cake.
