This winter, I subscribed to a winter CSA, which means I have enough carrots in my fridge to feed about 10,002 rabbits. I’ve made three different variations of carrot soup, and I have the leftovers in my freezer (and a handful of Insta Stories) to prove it. In other words, it makes me very happy to come up with a new recipe idea that involves carrots.(more…)
Ready for a delicious recipe that takes just four ingredients? The key is the store-bought eggnog, which does most of the work. It’s sweetened and flavorful and creamy, so the rest of the oatmeal just comes together, no problem.(more…)
Who needs help using up their Thanksgiving leftovers? I’m certainly grateful to have ample food in my possession, but I also feel pressure to adequately use my food and not cause any food waste. Thankfully, oatmeal makes an excellent base for, well, just about anything.
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.
I’ve been making many PB2 recipes lately. One day I was sitting on the L Train platform at Bedford Avenue, waiting. And waiting. And waiting.
And then I thought of a PB2 flavor. I added it to The List. I thought of another. Added it The List. Thought of another. And another. And another.
By the time the train showed up, I had almost 20 PB2 ideas on my phone.
And this one’s the best.
This is actually two recipes in one. The Eggnog Oatmeal could be eaten alone or topped with anything, and the Apple-Cranberry-Chestnut Compote could be added to any oatmeal you want! I just chose to pair them together.
Although I have made an oatmeal with eggnog before (in overnight form), I wanted to try it again in a new way. In particular, I wanted to try it with zucchini. 🙂
You could use any eggnog for this, storebought or homemade. I used SoDelicious coconut eggnog (this is not a sponsored post). I like to use coconut-based eggnog because coconut is the richest of the plant-based milks. I can’t imagine drinking eggnog made from rice milk or almond milk since eggnog is supposed to be thick and rich and creamy. But to be fair, I have never even tried rice- or almond-based eggnogs. Maybe they’re amazing. I don’t know and I probably never will. 🙂 (more…)
Who has Thanksgiving leftovers?
Not I. 🙂 But if you do, I have a recipe for you to try!
As you know, I’m a sucker for thyme. I basically took my Pumpkin, Apple, & Cranberry Oatmeal and made it ~super classy~ by adding thyme. (This recipe does not include apples, but you could obviously add that if you want.)
Well, here it is: my first Christmas-themed recipe of the season. I bought more vegan white chocolate chips just for this. Unfortunately, they come in packs of 4 on Amazon, which means I irresponsibly devoured two of the bags by the handful already . I vow to use the rest for oatmeal only. 🙂
I recently bought some fresh cranberries from the Union Square Greenmarket (seriously, is there anything that place doesn’t have?).
Where, oh where, have all my carrot recipes been? Despite my deep love for carrots (and zucchini!) in oatmeal, my blog has been lacking in those recipes lately. Why? No grater. :(Well, problem solved: I finally own a grater. Expect carrot and zucchini recipes in the future. 🙂
I recently realized I have some cranberry goodies left from the holiday season. My roommate had a bag of fresh cranberries (which she said I was welcome to), and I had half a jar of Trader Joe’s cranberry sauce. Perfect!
A couple weeks ago, I introduced my Cranberry Brownie Baked Oatmeal. Of course, that was delicious (CHOCOLATE); however, this time I wanted to try something more wholesome, and something that would let the cranberries have their moment.
