Coconut Oatmeal




First of all, helllloooo 2012!! I hope everyone had a blast this holiday season! :) And I wish everyone a very very wonderful new year!
I have a very good feeling about 2012. At least, I can tell it will bring many many changes. 
Whether these changes will be good or bad, I do not know. But I welcome changes. Change always bears a meaning that something new is coming. Of course, something ends as well but this is how life works. In my mind, I connect change with good. I guess, I am just a sucker for changes :)
For me changes have already started. I had to move out from my apartment, say goodbye to my roommate as a roommate. Say hello to my family in a daily basis again...
Since I am home now, at least for a short while, we decided to rearrange the whole house. Now it looks like as if we all moved to a new house :) Love it!
I also decided that I need to get back to the healthy lifestyle I used to have. Meaning I need to cut out refined sugar. Not all together. But the holiday season certainly did not do any good to my hips... So I am not eating sugar for one week. I know it's not much but for someone who ate something sweet each day it's not that easy. Besides, I just gotta start somewhere ;) Also, minimize my sodium intake. Just to lose some excess water in my system. It's not real weight I'll be losing but still, it'll make me happy to be a few pounds lighter... 
Having our oven in the service is a much help, too :) Anytime I feel like I just need to bake something I realize I can't! Yay! Good diet :)

This is why I created this coconut oatmeal recipe. It's probably the easiest thing ever to make but it has such a refreshing taste to the same ol' oatmeal. In fact, I have to seriously force myself to eat that small bowl of oatmeal in the morning. I pretty much despise it, but not this coconut one!!! AND it had no sugar in it at all. NONE. Of course, you can add some if you like but it's not necessary. Or add half a banana in. Actually, I was supposed to have a banana oatmeal but apparently my family ate it (even though they "hate bananas") so in my desperation I started looking for something in the pantry to add to the oatmeal. 

Coconut Oatmeal
for 1 person

1/2 cup oatmeal - I used an oatmeal mix that had 4 kinds of grain flakes like oat, rye,     buckwheat and barley

1 cup water
1/4 unsweetened shredded coconut
a pinch of coconut chips if you have
vanilla
optional: 1 teaspoon cane sugar or 1/2 mashed banana

Add the water in a small cooking bowl. Stir in the oatmeal and cook it for 6-8 minutes. You can add some salt but I did not. Add in the vanilla. When it's almost ready, add in the coconut and place a lid on top of the bowl and let it sit for 5 minutes. If you sweeten it then add the sugar or mashed banana at the same time as the coconut. If you want it creamier then add 1/4 cup almond milk in.

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
