baked oatmeal

December 11, 2013

Hey let’s have a rare post about food from me, shall we? I always struggle with what to eat for breakfast. It has to be fairly filling (enough to get me through at least 4 hours without my stomach growling), easy to make or heat up in the morning, and portable because I eat on my drive. For a long time I ate refrigerator oatmeal which really is delicious and perfect for my requirements, but I ran into a big problem with it once I got pregnant and that is that I can no longer tolerate very much dairy! Refrigerator oatmeal calls for milk AND Greek yogurt which is just too much. So then I tried making ahead breakfast sandwiches…

fall loves

September 23, 2013

Yesterday, the first day of fall, something magical happened: it actually cooled down in Houston! Granted, it wasn’t cool exactly, but it was in the upper 70’s and 80’s which felt amazing compared to the oppressive heat we’ve had the past few months. Most importantly, it made me hopeful. When I was younger I loved the heat of summer, but as I get older I have less and less tolerance for it. Because of the relief fall brings us it is quickly becoming my favorite season. I was even inspired to spend the day baking yesterday – cookies and a delicious apple crisp, yum. Here are some things I’m loving lately! A Good Day Journaling Cards – I really like…

favorite podcasts

June 6, 2013

I have a long commute to work and most of the time I listen to audiobooks, but this year I’ve also added in podcasts to the mix. They’re so fun! My criteria for a podcast is: has to be light & upbeat, not explicit, and I can’t be annoyed by anyone’s voice. Here’s what I have on rotation.   Must Listen Joy the Baker – my first podcast love and still my favorite. Joy and Tracy just chat about random things and answer questions from listeners. I feel like I’m talking with friends when I listen, and I frequently laugh out loud. Book Riot – this is relatively new but it’s so great! Jeff and Rebecca talk about news and…

popsugar must have may 2013 box

May 21, 2013

My latest guilty pleasure is monthly subscription boxes. This is not a new thing, but I’ve recently become fascinated with them. Right now I’m signed up for two of them, and the first one I chose is PopSugar’s Must Have box (referral link there). It’s $35 a month – but use code REFER5 to get $5 off your first month – and you get all sorts of products from fashion, beauty, food, entertainment, home, etc. I researched a lot of subscription services before choosing this one, and it seemed like you get the most for your money with it and the variety of products is exciting. I have to say that even if the contents of the box were a dud,…

obsessed with refrigerator oatmeal.

May 16, 2013

I feel kind of like an impostor posting something about food because everyone should know by now that I am not a foodie or a cook by any means. BUT maybe that gives me cred in a weird sort of way? Like, if this works for ME then it could easily work for you? Regardless, here goes. I used to be obsessed with cereal. I’d eat it for breakfast, dinner, snack, anytime I could get it. Then something happened when I got pregnant and I don’t like the feeling of that much milk on my stomach anymore. And I realized that cereal is basically just sugar; even the healthy kinds are not that healthy. In the hospital when I gave birth to Meredith I…
