Oatmeal Bites

Just like my Oatmeal Pancakes, I have been looking for more ways to eat lots of oatmeal, even when it's so hot! These are great for breakfast, dessert, or a 3 a.m. snack. They don't need refrigeration, but I think they're extra delicious that way. These are a good example of something that you can make to suit your mood: When I really want something healthy, I use oatmeal in the place of the coconut flakes and substitute all raisins instead of half raisins and half chocolate chips. On other days, I use these to indulge my sweet tooth and eat the recipe as written.

These are so easy -- just stir, scoop, and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Notice they require no cooking or baking, so I have made them countless times over the summer.

Pregnancy Waffles

These waffles are so yummy and have extra eggs and milk in them! I developed the recipe when I was struggling with morning sickness in the first trimester of pregnancy. I found that the easiest thing to digest was carbs, but I worried Saltine crackers don't have the protein and calcium I needed. Well these waffles sat well in my stomach and helped me better balance my diet, even when ill.

Oatmeal Pancakes

I used to eat a bowl of oatmeal just about every morning. That was years ago when I was a busy college student. These days, a bowl of oatmeal is good on occasion, but I now like more variety.

Today I ate these pancakes with strawberry yogurt and fresh pineapple, but they're also good with traditional butter and maple syrup.

Enchilada Dippers

Why is it that you can have the same breakfast for weeks and not get tired of it, but you are always looking for a unique dinner idea that everyone likes?
I love enchilada sauce, but wanted to change it up a bit. I thought, what if instead of a dish with tortillas saturated in the sauce and baked, I instead had crispy tortillas cooked on the stove that you dip into the sauce? I thickened the sauce to make it better for dipping.
