Organic.  It’s Worth It.

How McDonalds Screwed Up Oatmeal – I’ll admit to trying the oatmeal a couple of times.  You give me a coupon for a free product that is reasonably healthy and I’ll almost always use it.  The first time I asked for no brown sugar, assuming it meant plain.  It came out with the ‘cream’ sauce and was too sweet to eat.  Even the kids thought it was too sweet (and this was without the brown sugar).  I ended up eating out the apples and cranberries.  The next time I asked for only oatmeal, hot water and fruit and it came out as just instant oatmeal with fruit.  Much better.

Has anyone tried the McDonald’s oatmeal?



Veggie Udon Noodles

Tis the season for quick meals that counter all the sugar highs….

Veggie Udon Noodles from Alisa Cooks.  I added steamed broccoli.  For the kids I kept some noodles and veggies unseasoned, as they don’t like dishes that have too much Tamari or Sesame Oil.

Great recipe and one I’ll be adding to our weeknight rotation.

Fall Quinoa Pilaf – I added a dash of cinnamon.  So good and seasonal.  I made it for our family Thanksgiving.  It was the first time anyone in my extended family had ever seen quinoa.

Pumpkin Gingersnaps. Crazy good and addictive.  I love vegan doughs because I can let the kids eat the dough with no worries. I sent some of these to the kid’s preschool teachers and they have all asked for the recipe.

Cranberry – Blueberry Sauce from Peas and Thank You

I was tempting fate by letting her stir both cranberries and blueberries in a white shirt.

Wonderful atop steel cut oats.
