I think the baby knows we jumped forward an hour because I was up at 6…or 7? And couldn’t go back to sleep. After an hour of lying in bed, reading blogs, emails and baby apps, I got up to make a family pot of oatmeal, “gently whipped” And a steaming carafe of French press […]

If I had to choose a VERY favorite breakfast – in terms of flavor, enjoyment, versatility…this would be it. Trader Joe’s Sunflower Butter (my very favorite nut butter ever) with overnight oats and a Great Harvest bran muffin crumble (although that is tied with granola topping).
