Cran-Strawberry Oatmeal

October is almost over. I am not ready for winter. This is tragic. Please, save me. Is it time to move to California? It might be.



Strawberry Oat Crumble Bars + Oh She Glows Every Day Cookbook Review

Last month, I completed a self-imposed challenge in which I tried 20 recipes from the original Oh She Glows cookbook. Coincidentally, I’m back today for the virtual cookbook tour of Oh She Glows Every Day, Angela’s second cookbook.

Like the original, this follow-up book seeks to wow plant-based and omni eaters alike with wholesome and hearty meals. Angela’s ability to create soul-enriching and nourishing meals never ceases to amaze me, always bursting with invigorating fresh flavors. If you’re stuck in a frozen veggie burger stage, Oh She Glows Every Day has several enticing recipes that may convince you to swap your ketchup and frozen fries with some green onion and roasted chickpeas. I can’t wait to try The Best Shredded Kale Salad, Mocha Empower Glo Bars, Roasted Breakfast Hash, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Coconut “Bacon,” and the Sweet Potato Casserole. And that’s just the beginning!


Strawberry Cardamom Oatmeal with Coconut-Cashew Butter

I will not rest until I add cardamom to every single thing I can think of. One day I will have an entire cardamom section of my blog. <3

I’ve been wanting to make my own nut butter recipe for a while, but I hate the feeling of seeing all my nuts disappear in a matter of seconds; one minute I have a mason jar full of pecans, and the next they’re gone. Because I ordered a massive canister of cashews from Amazon, and I don’t eat them very often, I realized this was my chance! (more…)

Cherry-Berry Breakfast Cobbler

It’s been a while since my last cobbler recipe! Over a full year, in fact. I found inspiration to return to this format when I found myself with an abundance of fresh cherries, blueberries, and strawberries, all dying (quite literally) to be consumed within 48 hours.

The secret to this recipe is waiting until the berry mixture is bubbling. Don’t take it out any sooner. It’s kind of like when you bake a casserole and you have to wait until the creamy or cheesy mixture starts bubbling before it’s truly done (and I was never patient enough to let that happen, which is why I never make casseroles).  (more…)

Matcha-Lime Overnight Oatmeal with Strawberries

Mi novio recently told me the smartest thing ever. He claims cha in Japanese is “tea.” Think about it: kombuCHA. MatCHA. It’s also not a far cry from chai, which means “tea” in languages such as Arabic and Hindu (based on my very quick research). Brilliant.

Matcha-Lime Overnight Oatmeal with Strawberries

I am becoming more comfortable with matcha as I learn how to combine it with other flavors. Initially, it seems like it wouldn’t pair well with anything else, but after trying Matcha Marketplace oatmeal packets, I see that it’s far more cooperative than I realized. As matcha becomes more popular here in the USA, I think we will see it incorporated into increasingly unexpected products. Are Matcha Skittles in our future?? 😜 (more…)

Lychee Berry Oatmeal

I love lychees (and more specifically, lycheetinis🍸), but I had never purchased one, cut into it, and eaten it fresh–until this month. I’m not sure why, but I found it incredibly intimidating.

Speaking of lychees, if you’re ever in Boston, go to the My Thai Vegan Cafe in Chinatown. It’s on the second floor (up a rather creepy staircase). Order the lychee bubble tea. You’ll thank me. ¡De nada! (It’s actually what inspired my Lychee Coconut Overnight Oatmeal.) (more…)

Savory Corn, Blueberry, and Basil Oatmeal [Guest Post]

Hi there! I’m Kelsey (@amindfulvegan on Instagram), if we haven’t met yet, and I’m thrilled to be sharing another recipe with you. This recipe is a take on Lauren’s Sweet Corn, Basil, and Blueberry Oatmeal, but where the original was sweet, this take on it is totally savory.

Savory Corn, Blueberry, and Basil Oatmeal #vegan

This recipe came to be when my roommate (Hi Kristin) brought me a gallon of blueberries from her grandmother’s house. I remembered seeing Lauren’s recipe and knew I wanted to try it, since there’s so much fresh basil around right now. I guess I hadn’t actually read it though, because I was definitely expecting a savory porridge. When I did read the recipe and found out it was more of a sweet flavor profile, I played around with the ingredients and made the savory oatmeal you see below. (more…)

Choco-Blueberry Almond Granola

As I mentioned in my only other granola post, I’m not much of a granola eater. Don’t get me wrong–it’s freaking delicious. Unfortunately, my intestines are not a fan. Even sampling the recipes I make is enough to torment my tummy. 😭 Yowww.

In that post, I implied that I was not likely to being publishing granola recipes on here. Making granola often requires me to eat granola, and, like I said before, “Yowww.” Luckily for you, mi novio💕 is a big fan of my granola, so I guess I’ll just be trying out new recipes occasionally for him to try and you to read about. Everyone wins! Except me. 😜

Of course, mi novio💕 is also a picky eater. No cashews. No pecans. And absolutely NO coconut. I like the challenge, though; it forces me to be creative! This is the first time I’ve used chocolate in granola. I know it’s not a groundbreaking discovery (many have done it before me), but it’s new for me. I thought maybe it would make it more fun for him since I also included dried blueberries, and I honestly had no idea how he would react to that. I think dried fruit scares him. 😉 (more…)
