How to Make Oatmeal

Oatmeal's ingredients  | cookingwithcassandra.com

This is your sign to pick up that bag of oats you’ve stashed away in the cupboard, never to see the light of day. If you think oatmeal is a bore to eat, I feel you. Your feelings are completely valid!  The reason why doctors and nutritionists recommend oats is because it has plenty of health benefits. It helps lower your blood sugar levels and does wonders for our digestion. Healthy foods need not be boring, though! Recently I’ve discovered more interesting ways to enjoy oatmeal, like making these guilt-free sweet treats, like these healthy chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter...

Easy Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Apple pie overnight oats ingredients | cookingwithcassandra.com

In case you haven’t noticed, I have been experimenting with a plethora of recipes that use rolled oats. I mean, have you noticed how super versatile they are? Sure, they work best with sweet recipes, but they’re a great gluten-free replacement for flour, and a healthy source of carbohydrates. That’s good enough for me. I may have accidentally bought too many bags of rolled oats… 😁 which might explain the sporadic appearance of oat-rageous recipes on my blog like these oat-based banana chocolate chip muffins, Snicker oat bars, and peanut butter oatmeal cookies.  Thankfully, Walt has...

Easy German Apple Puff Pancake

Apple Puffed Pancake with sugar  | cookingwithcassandra.com

This apple puff pancake tastes like a frosty autumn weekend and is a comforting breakfast staple from Germany! Here is my modern adaptation of the traditional German apple pancake, or apfelpfannkuchen.  It’s family-friendly, so adults can enjoy it with brewed coffee while the little ones can enjoy it with a warm cup of tea or milk.  Recipe Origins In the early 1900s, it was popularized in America by a diner in Seattle, Washington. Eventually, the apfelpfannkuchen came to be known as Dutch babies in America. Not much is known about why they’re called Dutch baby pancakes, but one...

Quick & Easy Blueberry Pancakes (The Fluffiest!) 

Pancakes with blueberry toppings | cookingwithcassandra.com

I made a trip to the farmer’s market last weekend, ready to welcome a warm Summer's day. I was greeted by the prettiest vegetables there, but the thing that really caught my eyes was the blueberries.  Sitting proudly in a pile were cute tiny blueberries, all proudly handpicked by these independent farmers. Of course, I thought to myself. Blueberries are in season, and that can only mean one thing: HELLO, blueberry pancakes!  I love this recipe for pancakes loaded with blueberries. Every bite promises a burst of sweet and sour blueberries accompanied by a buttery pancake and...

My latest conquest involves zucchini bread overnight oats, which turned out to be surprisingly good.  All it takes is some creativity and courage to experiment with new things!  What is zucchini bread?  Zucchini bread, typically made by baking a bread mixture of grated zucchini and walnuts, is well-loved for being adequately sweet and moist.  When baked in a loaf, this summer squash makes a heartwarming treat for any time of...

Easy Egg Muffins Done Three Ways

Egg Muffin | cookingwithcassandra.com

Let me preface this by saying that eating a good, heartwarming, healthy breakfast is absolutely necessary. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 20s, it’s that breakfast helps to energize our bodies and sets the tone for the rest of our day.  It’s so important that I might even carve this on a stone tablet: Thou shall not skip breakfast.  Well… unless you’re planning to have a yummy brunch with friends where Mimosa's are involved. Or, unless you work a night shift, or you’re the kind of person who doesn’t have a big appetite in the morning.  My point is: breakfast is...
