I am hoping to mostly be a beneficiary of this blog, since my cooking leaves much to be desired. However, here is an awesome breakfast--healthy, delicious, and--best of all for my family--PINK!
1 cup steel cut oats
3 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
32 oz. plain fat-free yogurt
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup half-and-half (or heavy cream, if you wish to be deliciously naughty)
Cook the oats with the water, salt, and cinnamon overnight on low in a crockpot. Mix the yogurt with the brown sugar and half-and-half and let it sit overnight as well in the refrigerator. In the morning, layer oatmeal, yogurt, berries. (We just do one layer of each in a cereal bowl, but it would be pretty with two layers of each in a tall glass.) When you mix it all up, it turns pink, so my girls call it princess food.
Variations: We've also done this with quick-cook barley or wheat bulgur when I don't remember to set the oatmeal up overnight. They only take ten minutes in a saucepan on top of the stove.
