Baked Oatmeal

Tue, 25/09/2012 - 11:03 -- nick
Baked Oatmeal - excellent as breakfast (perhaps in its less-sweet variation) or a snack. The first variation presented here tastes to me more like a dessert than a breakfast food (which the second, a modification, aims to be), although is no less delicious for that; try them both and see which you prefer.

Baba ganoush is a common Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dip with a creamy, somewhat smoky flavor. It is usually eaten with pita bread although naan or a crispy flatbread also work well.

Muffins are one of many traditional breakfast quickbreads; unlike biscuits, muffins usually contain some form of fruit or other garnish. These muffins are especially healthy because they are made with whole wheat flour and oats. See the notes at the bottom of the recipe for ideas about how to customize this muffin recipe to your own tastes; the basic proportions should work for any flavor of oat muffin.

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp is a dessert made up of a baked apple filling and a crispy crumb topping. It is similar to cobbler, which has a biscuit-like (USA biscuit that is) or cake-like topping. Cool room temperature is required to create a nice crisp topping. To serve Apple Crisp, spoon it into a bowl and, optionally, add vanilla ice cream. Apple Crisp also goes well with a glass of milk.

Apple Bundt Cake - This very easy to make cake requires no fancy frosting or filling and is delicious for serving at breakfast, tea time or even as a birthday cake with a chocolate or fruit glaze covering.

ANZAC biscuits

Tue, 25/09/2012 - 10:35 -- nick
ANZAC biscuits have long had an association with the Australia/New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) troops sent to Gallipoli during WWI. The biscuit appears to be a variation of Scottish oat cakes, said to be from the Scottish-influenced city of Dunedin. The recipe was created to ensure the biscuits would keep well during naval transportation to loved ones who were fighting abroad.
