Recipe: Make-Ahead Berry Oatmeal Bake

June 19, 2017

Perfect make ahead breakfast for busy weekdays or weekend using whole ingredients. Try this kid-friendly oatmeal recipe for busy days and mornings! 

Working from home is it’s own little world. The best (or worst) part about working from home is that I’ll cook during lunch breaks. This is probably why nothing else gets done except food being on the table, which is very important, so is it really a bad thing that my work load is behind? Depends who you ask. LOL

I made this delicious baked oatmeal for the first time many months ago over an Easter weekend, since that’s always a busy one. It was nice not having to worry about making breakfast in between Easter baskets and church on Sunday. It got the thumbs up from my kids and husband, so I make oatmeal bakes regularly using different fruits and/or nuts each time to ensure it doesn’t become a bore.

It has the perfect amount of sweetness, but still a balanced, nutritious breakfast for the family.

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescapes

While my house may scream “It’s Christmas” by mid-November, I always have a table or two dedicated to Thanksgiving. I want the table to be simple, welcoming, and just as pretty as the Thanksgiving foods on it. I don’t use the traditional Thanksgiving colors, as I like...

Toasted S’more Espresso Martini

Espresso Martinis have taken this generation by the hand and led us to a land where we don’t have to choose between coffee and alcohol on a night out on the town. LOL! It’s a drink that makes heads turn and the entire table will order one as soon as they’re mentioned....
