Cold-easy-cooking – Mode On

Even though I’ve been chilling with some days of less hot weather, I’m still in the cold-easy-cooking mode.


My love for oatmeal  is pretty obvious and it has become bigger and bigger since I live in four-season weathers.  If I eat oatmeal in summer, I literaly start to sweat as soon as I taste the first spoon… Not nice at all!

Since I read how Robin from Knead to Cook (one of my favorite bloggers) makes overnight oats, my life changed. I made some changes based on an idea of my best friend. She blends bananas in water to substitute milk in the elaboration of the oatmeal! Thank you, Lorena!


No matter how hot the weather is, I can enjoy having oatmeal for breakfast because it’s not cooked, you just have to put it in the fridge during the night and let the magic happen.

This oatmeal is fresh and has lots of fiber… Love it!
