Auntie Karey invented this AMAZING oatmeal to feed her kids on those freezing Vermont winter mornings. 
Adding cornmeal & and egg is the unexpected difference.

2 eggs

Add:
3 ¾ C liquid (half milk/ half water)
½ tsp salt
2 C oats, old-fashioned
2 TBL cornmeal
Dash of cardamom (optional)
Brown sugar (optional—you may prefer to sprinkle it on top after it is served)

1.     To saucepan, crack in the eggs and whisk well.  Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. 
2.     Set pan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer.  Cook while stirring until thick.  Stir in several teaspoons of brown sugar now, or choose to pass brown sugar at the table.
3.     Serve with milk, sweetener of choice and a yummy smoothie or juice.
4.     “Hot Chocolate Oatmeal” Variation:  add cocoa powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper in step 1 if you are in the mood for “hot chocolate”.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Challa Bread

Challa Bread *******  Makes 2 loaves My neighbor, Bonnie, grew up with a Jewish friend and learned to love their family traditions, songs and the Hebrew language. Every Sunday she taught our Mormon young women a lot about the Hebrew alphabet and about many Jewish traditions (I was a teacher in Young Women so I got to hear her lessons). Even though she didn't talk about food, her lessons gave me the nudge to learn how to make something I'd always wanted to try . . . challa bread.  Check out h ow to braid a six-strand challa .

This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
