Snowy Morning Breakfasts

Nothing beats a warm breakfast on a snowy morning. I’ve been experimenting with different oatmeal combinations this winter. I like to make our oatmeal with milk instead of water, but for frugality purposes I usually do half milk and half water. After bringing the milk/water to a boil, I add the oats and whatever else sounds tasty that morning. Once I tried adding blueberries, but it turned the milk blue and everybody thought that eating blue food was just plain strange. Our favorite combination is: dried cranberries, chopped pecans, and cinnamon. This particular morning it was peeled apple chopped finely, chopped pecans, and cinnamon. Sometimes I drizzle it with maple syrup, but usually I top off a steaming bowl of oatmeal with a bit of brown sugar.

And for just one snow storm each winter we have to have sticky buns! Yum, yum, yum!

My sticky bun recipe is super quick and easy. It uses refrigerated roll dough and rises overnight. Then the next morning, you just pop it in the oven. Couldn’t be easier. And I have to admit that I love the feeling of being the family heroine for the morning. Click here for the recipe.
