Treats for the Tweets

Happy Friday to you~o.k. so my title was a bit corny but it sounded fun. Actually, I could have said Tummy Treats for the first photo and Eye Treats for the second but I think you get the idea. I am always in awe of those of you who share your recipes because they always look so yummy and to be honest much of my cooking are meals that are good to eat but maybe not as elegant as some. My hubby is the gourmet cook in our home so in the future I'll have to post some of his dinners for you-he loves the art of arranging a meal on a plate. This dish is Baked Oatmeal and is delicious and easy; you can add in whatever fruit, fresh, frozen or dried, that you like and one of my girls add chocolate chips to hers as well. It is a dish you let sit overnight in the fridge and just pop in the oven in the morning. Enjoy! Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup Agave nectar
2 eggs, beaten
3 cups oats(not instant)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt(we prefer sea salt)
1 cup milk(regular but rice or almond work as well)
1 cup fruit

Mix all ingredients together. Soak overnight. Baked in a greased 9" pie plate uncovered for 40 min. at 350 degrees. It is better the second day and taste very much like an oatmeal cookie.

My youngest daughter's girls took a bit to get used to it but now want it all the time.

This is a home in our town that I drive by almost daily. I absolutely love the little garden with all the birdhouses, wicker chair and flowers. I had to take a photo of it because it makes me smile.

I pray your weekend is filled with things that make you smile and times spent with those you love.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Looks wonderful. My daughter often makes baked oatmeal at the Bible college and everyone loves it.
    Thanks for sharing that pretty house. What a good idea to post photos of pretty places. I'll have to see what I can find here that people would enjoy seeing.
    Have a blessed weekend, dear!

  2. Hi! Noreen, Hey this sounds yummy! but what is Agave Necter?, sorry I have never heard of it, but anyway i would love to make this; just don't know if I have ever seen this. Anyway have a Blessed Wk-end!

  3. The same to you--a weekend full of blessings!!

    We have two birthday parties tomorrow; one is for Glory and the other is for a friend.

  4. The baked oatmeal sounds delicious. I am going to have to try that. Have a good weekend!

  5. I loved baked oatmeal, but will have to try it with the agave nectar. Yummy :)

  6. I am woefully inadequate in the kitchen, woefully! That being said, I appreciate a good, easy recipe that even I can make and not set off the smoke alarms.



  7. The treats look so yummy! Can I come over to your house? LOL. When I first read the title of your post I thought maybe you were baking for those of us who use Twitter. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend Noreen. That house does look beautiful.

    Love and hugs,

  8. that is a cute garden area by their front door.. a little trivia for you here.. that song that is playing on your site.. is the song i used to meditate on when my oldest son was out late at night (when he lived at home) and i would say that chorus over and over again until i would fall back to sleep.. I told him that one day.. and he laughted and he said mom thats a little upbeat song to try to fall back to sleep on..but when i would say..strength will rise as i wait upon the lord,, I knew that if i was trusting in the lord to protect my son and waiting on him.. that all would be ok.. and it was..

  9. Hi Noreen!! I really love oatmeal and have never heard of baked oatmeal before, it sounds delicious and I think I'd love to enjoy it on the porch you took a picture of, or my own too!! :-) I hope you have a good weekend!

  10. YUMMMM!!!! I'm pretty much a 'practical cook'. So my recipes don't appear too elegant either. But I tell ya, I can almost smell that baked oatmeal. That's how good it looks. I really like oatmeal in anything - so I am going to have to try this Noreen.
    I also enjoy beds with miscellaneous bird houses too. That house is so pretty looking. One of these days I would like to do something like that.
    Blessings and joy and FUN for your weekend my friend.
    Love & hugs,

  11. I love oatmeal any way shape or form! Sounds and looks yummy!
