Lately, I’ve been exploring the many virtues of oat flour. Did you know that oat flour is just rolled oats blended so finely until they resemble flour? It’s a miracle!
I’m a big fan of muffin tin breakfasts. They are so portable and individually sized, and are perfect for large batches made in advance.
Shredded sweet potatoes and grated parmesan cheese form a hashbrown “nest” surrounding soft baked eggs – giving you two breakfast favourites in one convenient portion.
These cute little Sweet Potato Egg Nests get to join the other muffin tin breakfasts in the recipe index already:
See? That muffin tray is versatile for more than just muffins!
I’m hanging on by my fingernails to the last day of summer.
Tomorrow it’s officially Fall, you guys, OMG! Before this blog turns into all things cinnamon and apples and pumpkin, I’ve got one last end-of-summer recipe: Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal.
Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal is great for these last days of summer where the mornings are crisp but the afternoons turn warm and sunny.
Last night I woke up shivering under my covers, because the window in my bedroom was open all night and there was a very, very cooooool breeze blowing in. I rummaged under my bed for my long-forgotten slippers, awkwardly stuffed my feet into them, and swiftly closed the window.
No more leaving windows open all night, or even all day.
Peaches grow a few hours inland from where I live – in the Okanagan region. It’s an area that gets hot dry summers and has perfect growing conditions for fruit (and wine! yum!)
I vacationed at a lake in the Okanagan two weeks ago, and peaches were the one thing I was set on bringing back home. (Besides cherries. And apricots. And blueberries. And tomatoes. Oh, and lots and lots of wine. 😉 )
Dutch. baby. Might go down as the weirdest name for a pancake EVER.
Despite its odd name, the dutch baby is a pretty little puffed pancake that bakes entirely in the oven. It should really be called the lazy pancake because there is no flipping required – the batter is poured into a cast iron pan, cooked in the oven until it’s impressively puffed, and then cut up like a pizza to serve.
