Recently I’ve been trying to follow a healthier eating plan, and my mini baked oats with blueberries and cinnamon are a good breakfast choice. They are also very versatile, just swap the fruit according to what you have. I make these without any added sugar, and I find them pretty filling when served with fresh fruit or natural yoghurt. If you want you can add sugar to your taste too of course.
The beginning of May already and the trees are growing their leaves, tulips are in full bloom, yet the weather here at least is still decidedly chilly. It hasn’t really occurred to me to stop using my slow cookers yet, due to the cold winds and rain, and I am sure to continue using them for a while yet. With the seven great entries into April’s Slow Cooked Challenge, you have plenty of slow cooked recipes featuring Spring Ingredients to keep you going. The Slow Cooked Challenge features recipes made using any slow cooking method, and we have a lovely array of different and exciting dishes this month.
One of the best things about using the slow cooker is that you can just leave it to work its magic while you go for a day out. At the weekend it is great to be able to do just a little preparation in the morning then go out, in the knowledge that you can come home to a Sunday roast all ready for you.
