Baby Girl is sleeping and Little Man is playing with a friend this morning, so I have approximately 5 minutes to write a quick post. Go me!
Here’s something I made before the newest munchkin was born, and froze to make my life easier afterward. I’ve been making baked oatmeal for years, but this was my first time making it to be frozen in individual portions. It worked well, so I thought I’d share.
This is a great breakfast food to keep in your freezer for those mornings where you want something more than cold cereal but don’t have extra time, or for when you have guests. Or whenever you feel like it.
This recipe basically couldn’t be any easier. So let’s get started!
Ok, friends. This is not a new recipe. In fact, this is the first recipe I ever posted on this blog. And it’s a goodie.
But here’s the thing. The first time I made it for you, Little Man was less than 2 months old. Which meant that I didn’t have a ton of time for these things, and that most of my cooking happened after he went to bed (i.e. after it was dark.) So the pictures I posted were terrible. That didn’t stop many of you from leaving lovely comments on how delicious it sounded. But it’s bugged me for a long time.
So, recently I made this again and decided to take pictures of the process. This time I made it for breakfast, so natural light was plentiful. I left the directions mostly the same, but this time we made 4 sandwiches instead of 3, since Little Man loves himself some french toast.
To review, the PB N B in the title stands for Peanut Butter, Nutella & Banana. In french toast. It’s pretty much all kinds of awesome. I mean, seriously. How can you go wrong with that combo? This isn’t so much a recipe as an idea. I don’t follow a recipe when I make french toast, so if you have a favorite recipe, you can easily use it when making this. (more…)
Bridget over at Bake at 350 does this thing every June called “Dessert for Dudes.” It’s sort of in honor of Father’s Day, but she does it all month.
I thought it was a cool idea, so I asked Hubs what his favorite dessert was. He doesn’t have one favorite, but he listed off several that he really likes. One of the top ones was carrot cake.
When I thought about it, I couldn’t remember ever having made a carrot cake before.
My friend Emma made a raw carrot cake for her daughter Olive’s first birthday, which had no sugar. I tasted a bit of it and it was delicious. So I decided to try my hand at naturally sweetened carrot cake. (more…)
