Quick Oats Pancakes

I love days when I can leisurely make and enjoy breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day and getting to have something hearty and sweet just makes my day. Followed with a big mug of coffee and I’m ready to tackle the errands of the day. Of course if it also happens to be healthy,…

Bare Essentials Buttermilk Pancakes

Pancakes were probably one of the first things I learned to cook; my mom always made amazing crepes for dessert but I wanted to have proper American style stack pancakes so I learned to make them from scratch myself. Buttermilk ones were a revelation much later on in life but once you have them the…

‘Cake 4 Breakfast’ Oats

There is a way to have dessert for breakfast and still be healthy (sort of)…yes it’s true! After my many rolled oats experiments (Banana Oats French Toast, Fruity Baked Oats), I finally came up with one that really does satisfy the sugar cravings. Using just a little bit of flour adds a cake like texture to…

Mushroom Spinach Omelette 

Another breakfast recipe! I know I’m obsessed! But to break the sweet streak, today I made a veggie Omelette to recompense for all the ice-cream we had last week (amongst other fattening items).

This recipe creates a slightly crispy Toast…

Fruity Baked Oats

I love breakfast, it’s my favorite meal of the day! Like most professionals, I used to forego breakfast for a few extra desperate minutes of sleep. Since I’m not working at the moment, I’m really enjoying leisurely breakfasts and trying out new recipes. This recipe evolved after the Banana Oats French Toast; Hubby and I actually…

Banana Oats French Toast

I love French Toast; of course how can any form of bread – that too sweet and fried – not be amazing! But after many indulgences, such as the Banana French Toast with Chocolate Sauce, I realized that we should go for healthier breakfast options and keep the decadent stuff for special occasions only. I’m…
