Share It:

School has either started will be starting soon for us. Mornings are hectic and making the kids and yourself a healthy breakfast can take time. This is when overnight oats come to the rescue!  They are the perfect busy morning breakfast that you can make the night before. You can even make a whole week's worth and just grab one every morning! Lifesaver!

Have you eaten overnight oats?What are they you ask?  Imagine a sweet, cool, creamy breakfast made with oats so it is healthy too!  If you haven't tried overnight oats, I encourage you to try. It is easy to whip up different flavors and you really can't mess it up! 

The ratio I use is 1 part oatmeal to 1 part milk to 1 part yogurt and then you can add all sorts of lovely flavorings!   I have rounded up a collection of overnight oat recipes that I am anxious to try. Maybe you'll try one too! How does Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough sound to you??

My own recipe: Peanut Butter Maple Overnight Oats


Blueberry and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations. When I saw this recipe that uses both chocolate and blueberries I was sold!

Do I even need to explain why this appeals to me?  Anything that resembles cookie dough is ok by me!

Peanut butter is often paired with chocolate but I feel like PB is like the can stand alone. But a little brown sugar never hurt anything!

25 Peach Recipes (Sweet and Savory!)

 Let's start with a story today, shall we?  Once upon a time, Jim and I were dating and we broke up. I was sad. It was Saturday night and I had no where to go.  My roommate, however, had her boyfriend over and they were having a great time which made me feel even lonelier and sadder.  Not knowing what to do with myself I ran out to the supermarket and bought a dozen peaches and spent the night making a huge peach pie with a brown sugar crumble. It was soothing to my soul to create something so sweet and special since peaches are only around for a short season. 

Luckily for me (and Jim...of course) we got back together and I never made a peach pie ever again.  But that doesn't mean I don't love anything peach because I do!  Peach ice cream, peach cake, peach crisp, peach sangria, you name it.  I rounded up some peach recipes, sweet and savory, that would make be perfect on your summer party table or at your next picnic or barbecue!
