Just wanted to post a quick teaser for you all….I have been chatting with a nice woman from Accent Furniture about reviewing & giving away some great cookware/bakeware from their website.  I am so excited about this, I can’t even begin to tell you.  I can’t tell you what the item(s) are yet, you will just have to wait & see!

The Best Breakfast…EVER!

Yesterday I talked about comfort foods for fall breakfasts and that really got my mind working.  I could do nothing but think about the bowl of oatmeal I was going to create for breakfast.  I made sure to partially prepare my oats before I went to bed last night.  Soaking the oats overnight allows the cooking process to move along much faster in the morning.  Here is how I did it:

1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Oats

1/2 cup water

I stirred the above together & placed in the fridge overnight.

This morning I was able to make my breakfast in about 5 minutes.  Perfect!  I took the oats out of the fridge and added 1 mashed banana and 1 TBSP flaxseed meal.  I microwaved for a minute, then stirred.  I then microwaved for another minute & stirred and then repeated 1 more time.  I removed the oats from the microwave and added the following:

1 TBSP Trader Joe’s Almond Butter

1 TBSP Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter


1 TBSP of Perky’s Nutty Flax for some crunch

Sprinkling of raisins


OH.MY.GOD!  This bowl of oats was so warming & super filling.  The perfect breakfast for such a cold morning – it was 32 here this AM!  I can see this on the menu more & more now.  I can’t wait to start adding canned pumpkin!  YUM!!
