Slow Cooker Orange Fig Pecan Oatmeal

I love orange flower water and once I got my hands on a bottle I was hooked. It has a very delicate, sweet, floral fragrance and a delicious taste when used sparingly. If you use too much you’ll feel like you’re eating perfume. If you can get to a Middle Eastern Store it’s surprisingly cheap, so get […]

This is a Monday that I’m just not prepared for. I’ve been taking things out of cabinets, cleaning and re-organizing the kitchen all weekend. That sounds great right?

Slow Cooker Apple Pecan Blondie Oatmeal

I’m back on my oatmeal obsession just in time for Vegan Month of Food. I realized fall and winter will bring even more flavors into my oatmeal mix. Plus, is it really an obsession if it doesn’t raise its head every once in a while? In case you didn’t already know this about me, I […]
