Recipe Makeover


did not publish a new post on Saturday. Wait I did! What I did was a makeover on one my older posts, Mango Coconut Sticky Rice. I did more than just re-shoot the photos and do a video of it. I rewrote the entire post.

I really like that recipe and that post I wanted to showcase how far I have come with blogging. So that was why I redid the entire post. I do urge you to go check the new Mango Coconut Sticky Rice post out!

New Start

As you know I been going through a lot of personal changes lately. Actually had events happen that have really opened my eyes too. I did not talk about them on here, but I will say I realized I need to purge the fake friends out my life.

I want to make a clean slate of so many things that are going on. It is funny, get me out the toxic work environment, and I am realizing so many things I need to just change. It is like a domino effect. The work environment kept me from seeing that I actually had a lot of toxic things around me.

Now I am free of that and I see much clearer now. You what is funny? I don’t miss the fake friends. I actually feel better having “fewer friends.”

Now I can make better choices in other areas. Like eating breakfast daily. I am horrible at this. I usually roll out of bed, get dress, go to work.

That is my daily routine. Or should I say was my daily routine. Now that I actually go to work a bit later, by a half hour later, I actually have time to eat breakfast in the morning.

So I am trying to make eating breakfast a part of my daily habit. One thing I like to eat in the morning is oatmeal. I have been getting compliments on the oatmeal that I made.

Oatmeal in general, it is simple to make. So what makes this Brown Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal different? Honestly, I think it because I make a brown sugar solution to boil the oatmeal in.

Most people boil water, add oatmeal, then put in the bowl, mix in the cinnamon, and sugar into it that way. It is good, but I actually had the brown sugar and cinnamon to the water instead. It makes a difference I think. In fact, people tried my oatmeal even say they like how I flavor it.

    I never would have thought to put the brown sugar in with the water I cook the oatmeal with! I usually just add the sugar, butter, and cinnamon after cooking. I will try this next time I make oatmeal, though my preference is for Irish oats versus rolled. I love the texture of slightly undercooked steel cut oats.

      I used to too, then one day I did this way found out I like it much better! I like Irish oats too, I usually make those in my slow cooker… I should do Irish oat recipe… I do need more breakfast on here 🙂

        I love me some breakfast. I don’t have time to do it on weekdays, but I like cooking something special on weekends. Just please keep in mind, when coming up with those breakfast dishes, that some of us HATE eggs! 🙂

    My kids love maple and brown sugar oatmeal, but I usually just let them use the packets. Love the idea of homemade oatmeal instead!

    I absolutely love starting the day with oatmeal.. it keeps my energy going for a long time. I might replace the raisins with dried cranberries but that’s just personal preference.

    I love this! I made it for breakfast this morning (minus the raisins since I don’t like them) and it was so good. It tastes better than the storebought stuff and much healthier as well.

      The slurry as I call it really makes a big difference! I am glad you liked it!!
