Cherry-Oat Pancakes for Father’s Day

Really, what tells Dad “I love you” more than cooking a special meal just for him? When I was growing up, the only meal we could all count on as a family (since my dad worked crazy-long hours during the week, and we had all scraped the last bits of food off our plates long […]

Rustic Glazed Peach and Mascarpone Tart with Oatcake Crust

Every summer during my childhood, my sisters and I would wait impatiently for the appearance of certain foods that weren’t available the rest of the year: cherries (still a love affair there); watermelon (nobody could cut it like my Dad–one sharp thwack! on top, and the thing practically fell open in slices); corn on the […]

Lauren’s Fruity Tea-Steeped Oatmeal with Kiwis

[Here topped with a dollop of coconut yogurt] So it’s no secret that I love summer. (No, let me rephrase that: I adore summer. I worship summer. I am summer’s acolyte. I wait all year, walking around like Pigpen with a gray cloud floating in my wake wherever I go, until summer finally arrives and […]

“It’s a Keeper” Butterscotch-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

[Note: this recipe is now available in my cookbook, Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free, along with over 100 more refined sugar-free, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free treats!] [photo: Celine Saki] When I first met the HH way back in 1997, he was dabbling in astrology.

Vegan Overnight Oats (Anti Candida Incarnation)

[Just look at that peachy color! ] Don’t you just hate it when your regular routine is disrupted? Well, maybe it’s just me.  As a Libra, I tend to be perhaps a little too attached to routine consistency boredom equilibrium in my life (Libra is represented by the scales, after all).  When the calm of a […]

Flash in the Pan: Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

[Sometimes, you just want to eat something now.  I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at right).] Over the […]

Lucky Comestible II (3): Quinoa-Oatmeal Croquettes

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I’ll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I’ve recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days.  For this second entry, I’m focusing on Quinoa. The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before I move on to the next lucky […]

Baked Oats

  I’ve been craving my favorite baked oats ever since writing about them the other day on this blog. The recipe is actually from the Moosewood Classics cookbook, but I’ve made it so many times and adjusted the amounts and ingredients to my own liking so much over the years that I’m not sure how closely […]
