Otherwise, I knew I’d be doomed. (more…)

Pumpkin Spice Granola

Friday, November 11th, 2011

I try not to, but every time my pantry granola stash runs low I have a strange sense of urgency to hurry up and make a new batch.  No idea why this is, but for some strange reason granola has that effect on me…I guess I just love having it around.  This seasonally-flavored batch is especially wonderful.  It’s great as pre- or post-workout fuel, a healthy mid-morning or afternoon snack (especially for my niece who adores it), or a festive addition to brunch for guests who arrive unexpectedly ravenous mid-morning on a Saturday (not that I’m talking to anyone in particular ;) ).

Blueberry-Oat Breakfast Loaf

Friday, August 26th, 2011

I love making quick bread or muffins on relaxed weekend mornings.  There’s something almost magical about a late summer Saturday morning…waking up to the sound of birds chirping and sunlight streaming in your window…and of course knowing that you have the whole day free to do whatever you want!  Those kinds of mornings call for a special start to the day.

Last Christmas, my friend Brandy of Nutmeg Nanny and I exchanged a few goodies.  Not only did I get to sample her famously wonderful Buckeyes and other homemade treats, but I also got to try a few other specialty foods that she sent, one of which was a delicious Wild Maine Blueberry Syrup. (more…)

Jam Bar Cookies {Gluten-Free & Naturally Sweetened}

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

There’s a cute little co-op in my area that makes the best jam thumbprint cookies around.  The only problem is that the co-op is over half an hour away from where I live and I’m not willing to drive that far every time I want a good jam thumbprint.  You can probably see where this is going, lol.  I decided to try and replicate them at home (try being the operative word here).

Oat Tea

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Old man winter has made himself at home.  And while I really don’t mind his arrival, it’s the goodies he tends to bring with him, like colds, flues, and less than 10 hours of sunlight each day that I don’t enjoy.  Being asthmatic, I’m especially prone to lung infection, particularly pneumonia.  (I’ve gotten it every year since I’ve moved from Florida back to New York…hmm, perhaps a sign that I need to move back to Florida?)  Anyway, I’ve been feeling a little under the weather and I’m of the mindset that prevention is the best cure, which is why as of late I’ve been getting my fill of things like tahini (you can read about its beneficial effects on asthma here), green veggies, and homemade soups.  And now oat tea.

Honey-Glazed Popovers

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

One of the biggest perks of breakfast in bed (any time of day!) is that there is very little cleanup.  There are no tables to set and no dinnerware sets are dirtied in the process, which gives you more time to relax and actually enjoy your meal.  I surprised Mike with breakfast in bed and I wanted to make him something a little different.  I love my morning bowl of oats and these beautiful popovers are just another way to eat them.  And Mike (who normally won’t touch a bowl of oats) asked me to make these again.  I think this breakfast in bed will be showing itself again in our near future. 

Honey-Glazed Popovers

(Yield:  6 popovers)

2 large eggs

1 c low-fat or fat-free milk

1/2 c rolled oats

1/2 c all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp fine salt

1 TB super fine sugar

1 TB butter, melted and cooled slightly

1/4 tsp vanilla bean paste

3 tsp canola oil, to grease the pan

Honey Glaze:

1 TB honey

1 tsp rose water (optional)

Popover pan (to make 6 popovers)

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 425F.  While the oven is preheating, let the eggs and the milk sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes. 

Measure 1/2 tsp canola oil into each popover cup.  In a blender, process the oats until they become a fine powder; pulse in the flour, salt, and sugar.  In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla bean paste.  Pour the egg mixture into the blender with the oat mixture and pulse three times, then use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender and pulse one more time; be careful not to over-process.  The batter will be thin and a little lumpy.

Pour the batter into the popover pan, filling each cup about halfway full.  Bake for 20 minutes at 425F, then turn down the oven to 350F and bake for another 8 minutes.  (Do not oven the oven during the cooking process.)  Remove from oven and use a sharp knife to cut a slit in the top of each popover to allow the steam to escape. 

Drizzle the tops with the honey glaze and serve immediately.
