Mixed Fruit Baked Oatmeal

This past weekend my husband and I got together with a few friends and went bowling.  I used to bowl when I was a kid, and I actually won a few trophies over the years.  Since I hadn’t bowled in awhile I wasn’t sure how rusty I would be.  Well, I don’t know if luck was on my side or if I remembered some of my old tricks, but I won both games!   I almost forgot how fun the game could be.

When we got back from bowling I wanted to make something I could just throw in the oven in the morning.  I decided on something more nutritious and filling than my weekly Saturday morning Cinnamon Buns.   I’ve been craving oatmeal lately and found this great recipe that I could choose fruit my whole family would like.

After cooking this oatmeal I let it sit a bit so that it wouldn’t be too hot for the kiddies.  I also added some cream and a drizzle of maple syrup on top.  I was really happy with the outcome and the little sprinkle of chocolate chips added the perfect sweetness without taking away the flavors of the fruit.  It’s a great dish to make when company comes over.  Make it ahead and pop it in the oven in the morning!

    Lately I’ve been trying to eat healthy and I’m trying to avoid any processed food. It’s actually not that hard but when it comes to having a little sweet treat there’s always added sugar and things I can’t pronounce. When I first tasted Larabars I loved them but at $1.69 each I knew I had […]

    Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake

    A few years ago my husband made a tri-color quinoa dish that was so tasty.  One layer was red (from sundried tomatoes), another layer was green (from pesto), and the final layer was light brown (from plain quinoa).  It was a time consuming dish to layer all the ingredients but the final dish was so […]
