This is a re-post from November 2011. Life and work have been a little hectic around these parts and I hope to be back in the swing with some all new SMILEs beginning next week! Until then, this oatmeal "cake" is not really cake at all but molded, leftover oats that have been sliced, toasted and reinvented into something that is rather spectacular really. No one could ever accuse these of being gloppy or grey!|
One of my favorite brunch recipes is something that I concocted after having breakfast with my Scottish grandfather where he pronounced a pan-formed ...

Here is an easy recipe for a tart (and as sweet as you'd like it) treat. |
Great with coffee or tea and company; also as a dessert. Heck, I'd have it with breakfast.
Back in 2010, this recipe was very well received -we hope you like it just as much.

**Extra Post this week, since Thanksgiving landed on Thursday** Hope you don't mind a double-dose of m.o.m!
Does anyone remember these cookies? They're from the Betty Crocker Cooky Book.
A blast from my childhood for sure! Oh how I loved looking through the pages of cookie photos, hoping we could make every recipe.
Tis the holiday season, so we thought we'd give you another simple recipe that is easily transported and can sit around for a while.
These no-bake cookies are a perfect sweet treat for a party or as a gift.

This is far too tasty to wait for next week's SMILE. Plus, it's right in line with my post this morning about Bittman's fast food chart. |
Affordable and fast, oats are what's for lunch!

Yep! I've been having fun in the kitchen today! I made this Deep Dish Cookie Pie with just a few minor changes. I used a few less chick peas, since I was working with a portion I had frozen rather than cans. I increased the applesauce to 1/2 cup so as to to have a weird bit of applesauce spoiling in the fridge. I added some vanilla and I accidentally (REALLY!) put in 1 1/2 cups of Ghiradelli 60% dark chips instead of just one.|

I know there's a shortage of pumpkin but when all of you folks that ordered it begin cracking open those cans, consider making Pumpkin Gingerbread Refrigerator Oats before bed for some hearty and seriously nutrient-packed morning grub.|
The refrigerator oats were pretty dense in the nutrient department on their own but after I stirred in a tablespoon my chia mixture (1/2 white, 1/2 regular chia), boy oh boy, just look at all that green log goodness.
Also, it made our morning so pleasant as momma didn't have to make anyone breakfast this morning. And Maya said it tasted like ...

It was the summer after of her eighteenth year. Her confidence was as high as her hopes and her long, golden hair fell temptingly upon firm, supple, youthful skin. |
The ocean breeze drifted across bare shoulders as she glanced out into the deep, emerald waves. The look in her eyes said it all: she wanted a granola bar. What? Not exactly the oats you thought we were sowing here today? Hey, this is a NUTRITION column!

|What is the difference between regular oatmeal and steel cut oatmeal?|
The only difference I've noticed while cooking and eating it, was size and texture.
And did someone say something about soaking oats before cooking???
I think I'm moving from instant to cooking it myself.
