Weekend Links and Photos

In this week’s web reading I learned that our (almost) daily breakfast choice is making us happier. Fantastic!

We do love our morning oats, whether they are instant or simmered in the slow cooker overnight. Baked with apple and cinnamon is a favourite, too.

Also, in the Serious Eats article below, I remembered how great it is to welcome people around the table on a regular basis. We’re getting ready to get back in our Sunday dinner groove after a busy summer.

Happy reading!

I’m also pretty excited for this upcoming book. And this one, too!  It’s going to be a fantastic fall for cookbooks. Now, hit the jump for a few photos from our late-September.


We celebrated the return of hoodie weather with campfire macaroni & cheese. It’s the perfect temperature to sit by a fire.


Our lazy Saturday brunch included waffles with pumpkin butter and maple syrup.


A frost warning gave me the incentive to harvest most of my mint and get it drying for winter tisanes similar to this one.


As long as local corn is available, it will be a side with dinner. This pan had a little lime zest for punch.


On sunny afternoons, we have to take our after-school snack into the forest. After all day of classes, one needs to soak up some Mother Nature.

Have a beautiful Sunday, all!
