Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal | emilylevenson.com

It seems like the second September hits, Fall is the only thing on everyone’s brain. Pumpkin flavored everything becomes readily available. Halloween candy starts proliferating the shelves. And it’s only a matter of time before the very first Christmas something or other will appear on the shelves. (I shudder just thinking about it.) For me, fall begins to usher in more hearty meals like soups, chili’s, and baked oatmeals. I seriously love baked oatmeal because of how easy it is to whip up a healthy breakfast without having to stand over the stove cooking it. Between eggs and stove-top oatmeal, I’ve been craving a bit more simplicity in our morning...

Sweet Potato + Dried Cherry Oatmeal

Sweet Potato + Dried Cherry Stove Top Oatmeal

Every now and then I feel like all of my food mojo gets lost. I’ll be rocking and rolling for a few weeks, buzzing with creative energy and excitement around menu planning and cooking. And then BOOM. It’s gone without a trace. No note left behind for where it’s gone, or even when it will be coming back. And into the mix two other mouths to feed and it’s a recipe for disaster. All I have to say is thank god there are other food blogs out there to help pull me out of my food rut. Case and point: The Oatmeal Artist. How that gal finds a way to...

5 Awesome Oat Recipes

It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessed with oats for a while. It started harmlessly with refrigerator oats and then morphed into baked oatmeal. Now, we’re sort of at an oat free-for-all with stovetop oats getting in on the fun. I’m totally blaming The Oatmeal Artist for this. It’s all HER fault. (Thank you.) Here are a few oat recipes that have been tickling my fancy and piquing my interest lately. The Ultimate Guide to Oatmeal via The Kitchn This is the mother of all oatmeal posts. I was blown away by the amount of information in here, including cooking times, texture issues, and the differences between rolled, quick cooking,...

Strawberry Baked Oatmeal

strawberry baked oatmeal

This may come as no surprise, but I seriously love oatmeal. And not the stuff that comes in a packet and is ready instantly. No, I much prefer the refrigerated kind, the kind that turns into delicious granola, or the kind that gets baked and tastes like dessert (like this). I also happen to love strawberries. So why not combine my two loves into one dish and call it breakfast? The Hubster was actually the one who requested a dish like this. I think he may have (finally) started to get tired of his “regular” breakfast of a two egg omelet with tomatoes, onions, and cheese with a side of...

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

There are few things better than peanut butter and bananas together. Except perhaps peanut butter and chocolate. I blame My Mama for getting in this mindset. Not only is chocolate and peanut butter her thing. She also sent me a recipe for fried peanut butter and banana sammich this week. So what if it was in honor of the anniversary of Elvis’ death. The Hubster’s dire hunger that reared its ugly head around 6pm + the incessant cravings for anything peanut butter + the need to find something for dinner STAT = a recipe I found over at Two Peas & Their Pod. What ensued was a meal fit for...
