What Would Betty Do Logo Oat Flour Yogurt Pancakes

Wheat-Free Oat Pancakes I should start by saying that we have no dietary issues with wheat. None of us are gluten free or have celiac symptoms. Nonetheless, it’s obvious that your standard batch of bleached all-purpose flour isn’t the most nutritionally dense food out there. That prompted me to do some research into flour alternatives […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Coconut Waffles

Waffles + Coconut = Delicious It wasn’t until after we returned from Hong Kong that I learned that they make their street waffles with coconut milk. I’m seriously willing to hop on a 15-hour flight to go back and try that, but instead I just attempted my own. This is a minor modification of the […] Read More

Indian Spiced Baked Oatmeal The Assistant had been encouraging me to bake something – preferably cookies or brownies – but I was looking for something just a wee bit healthier.

What Would Betty Do Logo Challah French Toast with Cherry Sauce

Making the Best French Toast Even Better I was going to just post the recipe for the cherry sauce, figuring that French toast recipes are universal and everyone does the same thing.

What Would Betty Do Logo Nutella French Toast

Nutella and Fruit French Toast In the continuing saga of my deficiencies as a blogger, my child has once again demanded that I take dictation for the sake of spelling accuracy, as he tells how to make his favorite French toast. All commentary is his unless noted in [brackets]. “First, you take the soft bread […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Steel Cut Oats in the Rice Cooker

Easy Steel Cut Oats Those of us who make steel cut oats know that they take a bit of time and some stovetop management: boil, simmer, stir. And then one day, it dawned on me: the rice cooker can do all of this for me! I’ve already tried to convince you that you need a […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Shakshuka: Israeli Poached Eggs

Tomato Poached Eggs One day, I was standing in line at Sprouts, and I spotted the cover of Vegetarian Times. Now, let’s be clear: I’m not a vegetarian. My husband and child are both serious carnivores. And yet… on the cover of the June 2012 issue was a picture of eggs poached on a bed […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Help a Mother Out

Oatmeal Mix-ins The Tiny Kitchen Assistant eats oatmeal every morning. Every. Single. Morning. Understandably, this can get a little bit boring. I’ve tried livening things up by mixing in cool stuff. His genius creation: Nutella and strawberries. I have to tell you, that’s pretty good, but it’s not an everyday breakfast. I’m running out of […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Frittata Muffins

Eggs in Muffin Cups Have I mentioned that the Tiny Kitchen Assistant doesn’t eat eggs? He absolutely refuses to consume anything with visible egg (“because eggs are ingredients”). Imagine my surprise last year, while traveling, when we discovered that he’ll eat Starbucks Artisan Bacon breakfast sandwiches. Yes, he’ll happily scarf down a sandwich that’s egg, cheese […] Read More
