Peaches n' Cream Oatmeal



It's maybe due to the fact that I eat oatmeal about 5 days a week for breakfast but I am like the happiest kid around the kitchen when it comes to creating newer and newer types of oatmeals. Oatmeal is one of the best foods out there. Seriously! Okay, if you don't sweeten it with a ton of sugar. But it will reduce the risk of heart disease, it will ease your digestion, it fills you up so you don't have to eat a lot, therefore it has a weight loss effect, as well! And these are only a few of the benefits of oatmeal. i encourage everyone to eat it as much as they can because really, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I suggest you to have it right! :) It will make you want to keep eating healthy for the rest of the day. Or something like that... I do cheat from time to time, even if I started with oatmeal. :P

Today I had this more than amazing oatmeal as a snack/early dinner because I just wanted something sweet, low-calorie and light before a nice workout (I am still ahead of that nice workout :D ) so oatmeal just seemed perfect! I eat my oatmeal in the morning salty and when I eat it as a dinner I like to sweeten it up. Who knows why... So I saw some lonely nectarines in the kitchen and the recipe just came together! A super creamy, fruity dessert porridge! Yum! This is honestly the best oatmeal I've ever eaten. I know, I always say that. Well, I am a fickle creature :) And I always fall in love with something new... Oh!! I almost forgot to mention! This oatmeal is vegan!! How cool is that?? :) 

Peaches n' Cream Oatmeal

1/2 cup oats

  2. What a lovely recipe! A great way to start the morning. Although next time, I'm going to try only a 1/2 cup of water. It came out a bit soupy with the full cup, and took quite a while to cool down. Other than that, very tasty.

    1. Really?? Soupy? Oh, I'm sorry, that's such a bummer! It might be the oats... The ones I use soak up an incredible amount of water so when I use 1/2 cup water it's too dense and thick. But I'm happy that you liked its taste, at least :)

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. 
You really learn to appreciate things when you don't have a lot. …
