Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread from the Bread Machine

Just like everybody else, I have days that are hectic and I need an easy, plan ahead dinner.  In the winter, those days are filled with crockpot soups.  Often, if I can, I add homemade biscuits or breads.  Just a slice of bread can fill the cracks that soup doesn’t satisfy.  Recently, I decided to […]

Cookie Butter, White Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookies

The title says it all!  These cookies are full of good things and good flavors.  They make a limited number which is good for me as I only put 2-3 on each holiday tray that I make.  These cookies are big and soft and chewy! Yum! They also freeze well which is why I can […]

Oatmeal Lace Cookies–Gluten-Free

I was trying this recipe to make it gluten-free for my holiday cookie trays that I give to neighbors and friends.  I remember making something like it years ago, and wanted to rekindle the memory.   I remembered that the cookie was sweet, crispy and light.  This recipe makes cookies just like I remembered.  Oh, […]

No Bake Cookies using Homemade GF Cookie Butter

A new no bake cookie recipe is always a good thing!  This week we have shared recipes for the Dutch cookie, Speculaas, and for cookie butter made from these cookies.  The only problem I’ve had is that my family is eating the cookies before I can get to making the cookie butter.  But that is […]

Fresh Blueberry Oat Bars

This is the recipe of the week!  Everything fell together for me to make this and I loved the results!  I was shopping and the store had 18 ounces of fresh blueberries at a great price.  Now, I eat blueberries like popcorn, just a few at at time, popped into my mouth.  Nothing is better […]

Honey, Apple and Oat Scones–Gluten-Free and Delicious

I had a friend drop by and I didn’t have any goodies going at that time.  While I was talking with her, I put these together.  Let me tell you my house smelled so good!  These were simple to put together, using only one apple cored, peeled and chopped.  She is used to my baking […]

Seeded Oatcakes–Savory Oat Crackers

These crackers are just plain fun!  They go together quickly.  This cracker is flavored with the herb, thyme, and roasted sunflower seeds.  The crispy texture lends itself to pairing with spreadable cheese or thin slices of cheese.  Plus the recipe makes about 24 good-sized crackers. I like to snack on roasted sunflower seeds.  However, I […]

Orange Oaties

These are oatmeal cookies that are flavored with honey, orange zest and orange juice.  They are just packed with flavor.  Then the addition of oats as part of the flour makes them a reasonably healthy snack.  It doesn’t hurt that they have limited fat too.  Because this recipe uses basic, simple ingredients, I often find […]

Oatmeal Crêpes–Either Sweet or Savory

Crêpes are made all over the world.  Some places they are served as a main dish with meat and steamed vegetables as the filling.  However, the most usual way to serve crêpes is as a dessert with a sweet jam filling.  Crêpes that have the added benefits of oats in the flour mixture, have a […]

Banana Oat Squares

With only 4 main ingredients and no added sugar, these are popular snack squares.  Don’t tell the kids how easy they are to make and how healthy they are.  Just make them and put them in the school lunches.  You won’t get any back.  I make them often and leave them the large squares.  Some […]
