EveryDayCook – Always Perfect Oatmeal by Alton Brown
If you know me at work, you know I eat yogurt for breakfast just about everyday. So much yogurt that me and Lee (a fellow yogurt buddy!) are going to eventually put up a small blog on our yogurt reviews (strong maybe). However, on the weekends, I usually don’t eat breakfast (coffee and brunch is a different story) but I have some time this morning to give oatmeal a try. Added bananas since I picked up some for the recipe below.
So maybe I’m just used to eating instant brown sugar kind, but this was a lot different than I thought. Next time, less salt and maybe I’ll add brown sugar while it’s cooking.
EveryDayCook – Oatmeal Banana Bread by Alton Brown
At some point, I have to at least start doubling up on recipes if I want to finish the book this year. I had just about all the things for this recipe except for the oatmeal which I picked up for the recipe above, so this worked out well. Also, I love banana bread.
Delicious! A lot more work than I thought/read and a good reason why I love cooking more than baking (but I’m learning). I also may not have ground the oatmeal fine enough, I’m not sure, I get a few oatmeal bits in my bites.
I hope you read the title in the voice of the boats boats boats girl. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s a HIMYM reference.
