The creamiest Oatmeal ever!


When someone mentioned oatmeal I was always the first and loudest to protest. 
Oatmeal = eww. That is how I always thought of it, I even called it "the snot". Okay, I still call it that way :) Pretty appetizing, right? But I tried to like it. I knew it was so good for my health and body so I kept forcing down a few spoons each and every day to follow it a "normal" breakfast. I did that until 2012 when I made a resolution or more like a determination to finally lose that 10 pounds I've been playing around with as a yo-yo. So I stuck to "the snot", trying all kinds of versions of it until I found this Coconut Oatmeal recipe I posted a few weeks ago. That became my favorite but you just can't eat the same thing every day. So I kept on experimenting. And that is how I finally found the creamiest, most yummy tasting oatmeal ever! Oh and have I mentioned how healthy it is? I don't add any sugar because it's just sweet enough for me but of course, you can add 1-2 teaspoons of brown cane sugar. Or maple syrup. It's up to you. But what makes it so amazing? Rice milk. And a tiny teaspoon of real butter. These 2 ingredients make all the magic happen. You can substitute rice milk to any types of milk but I found rice milk the most tasty. I am intolerant to cow milk so I can't drink it. I hate how soy and oat milk tastes and almond milk is way too expensive around here. I hope you'll fall in love with this recipe as much as I did!

The creamiest Oatmeal ever
makes for 1 person

1/2 cup whole grain oats
2 tablespoons wheat bran
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoon water
1/2 cup rice milk - or any type of milk
1/2 - 1 teaspoon butter
pinch of salt
optional: 1 teaspoon cane sugar or maple syrup

Add oats and wheat bran into a cooking bowl. Pour the water and milk on it and start cooking it. Add a pinch of salt. Cook it for about 7 minutes, stirring it frequently. When it thickened, turn the heat off and add the butter and cover it for 3 minutes. Serve it with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a few apple slices or half a banana.

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…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.
