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.

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!

Homemade Nutella

I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give? I was thinking really hard when a completely random thing came to my mind. I should make some nutella. She loves nutella. Frankly, who doesn't, right? I love it, too although it's been years since I ate any. I can't really explain why because I always think that if I eat just one spoon, I will gain a 100 pounds immediately. But with this thought, I shouldn't be eating any brownies, cookies...etc.  BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. OH MY GOD. I wouldn't have though
