Recipe: Steel-Cut Oats with Maple-Roasted Apples and Cheddar
I’ve become an oatmeal connoisseur. I’m that woman who orders oatmeal when eating out at relatively nice restaurants or on vacation to see just how they do it. When on a train trip a few months ago, I even became quite enamored with Amtrak oatmeal and would look forward to it each morning (it was a long train trip). Like you, I’m sure, I’ve had really great oatmeal and my share of pretty awful bowls, and I’ve learned a lot in between those experiences.

Recipe: Breakfast Barley Bowl with Mango, Coconut, and Banana
I’m a sucker for a good whole-grain breakfast bowl. In many ways, I consider it the perfect breakfast; grains are a great vehicle for seasonal fruit, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and yogurt. While I tend to stick to cooking grains with water or broth when making dinner, in the morning I like to get a little creative and cook them with something other than water. Lately my go-to has been coconut milk, and this tropical barley bowl is evidence that it can be a pretty delicious move.

Recipe: Grapefruit Honey Ginger Soda
Though it may be chilly outside, I think the beginning of the year is an excellent time for a glass of homemade grapefruit ginger soda. I came up with this recipe when my partner swore off commercial soda, and after months of holiday indulgence, the light and tangy fizz is most welcome. The soda is sweetened with honey, not sugar, and the ginger provides a note of warmth for winter. This recipe is for a syrup that you can mix with carbonated water (store-bought or homemade).

Raw Recipe: Tahini-Date Salted Caramels
I considered waiting until the holidays to share these salted tahini date caramels with you, but they are so swoon-worthy that I just had to post the recipe right now. Plus, if you can get your hands on caramel-like Barhi dates, which won’t be in season for long, they will make these confections all the more special.

Recipe: Easy Bourbon Peach Sorbet
Bourbon and peaches were made for each other, and not just in cocktail form. Here’s a grown-up sorbet that marries golden peaches with the vanilla and caramel notes of bourbon — it’s a bowl of cool refreshment and warm summer sunshine all at the same time. And you don’t even need an ice cream maker to make it. I call this grown-up sorbet not only because of the booze, but also because it isn’t overly sweet.

5 Tips for Making Healthier Banana Bread
It’s true that when the weather turns warmer, I don’t bake as often. But when you live in Seattle, that tends to be a slow, evolving process with many people here insisting that summer doesn’t actually start until after July 4th. In other words: we’ve got some baking days left in us yet! I’ve been experimenting with wholesome quick breads for breakfast and had great luck turning oil-laden, sweet recipes into healthier morning options.
