I was visiting my mother in Denver and she made this wonderful baked oatmeal for us. It really is like eating a Morning Glory muffin in an oatmeal version. It is easy because you can make it ahead and then reheat it.

Oatmeal Date Scones

2 05 2011
I went for afternoon tea with the ladies the other day and it inspired me to make scones.

Diggin’ Granola

A good friend of mine asked me specifically to put my granola recipe on the website. I have served this granola to a lot of people over the years and they just can’t seem to get enough of it. When my friends visit me from around the country, they insist on being fed Diggin’ Granola. This is the basic recipe, but of course, it comes out a little different every time because when I make it, I basically use whatever is in my pantry. I vary the dried fruits and the nuts.

These oats are simple but require a little thinking ahead. If you have never had steel cut oats, you are in for a treat. They are much heartier than oatmeal. Soak the oats overnight and then bring them to a boil right after you wake up in the morning. Turn them down to simmer and then do your morning shower, meditation, exercises or whatever your daily routine is. When you are done, you will have hot oats ready and waiting. You can use any dried fruit besides raisins. It is delicious topped with a little almond milk and some granola or toasted nuts. Read the rest of this entry »
