Blueberry-Peach Breakfast Bars

Wild blueberries and fresh peaches are sandwiched a between crisp, buttery oatmeal crust.






Well our summer is almost to an end. The kids will begin their distance learning on Sept 21st, so I've been trying to think of easy breakfast ideas, for them to eat, before meeting their class online every morning. We are not sure of all the details so far, but we do know that they are expected to be online every morning, for class, with a lunch break in there somewhere. 

Since I still can not return to my cafeteria, I've been trying to keep busy by working in my home kitchen. I decided to experiment with a type of breakfast bar. The kids both love Nutrigrain bars, so I knew this would be a hit. My plan was to make an oatmeal cookie type of crust for the top and bottom and fill it with blueberries. Then I noticed that my peaches were super ripe, so I added some in along with the blueberries. This tastes very similar to a blueberry crisp and the kids mentioned that they would go great with vanilla ice cream, LOL. This is a great lunch box, or at home breakfast/snack addition, but would also make a great dessert, at the end of a dinner party.





Blueberry Peach Breakfast Bars

2 C flour
2 C quick cooking oats
1 C brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C butter, melted
1 egg
1/4 C milk
3 C blueberries (I used wild)
2 C fresh peaches, peeled and diced
1/4 C sugar
2 Tbs flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, and baking soda. Mix well to combine. In a smaller mixing bowl, mix the melted butter, milk and egg. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is crumbly. Press half the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Combine the blueberries and peaches, with the sugar and flour. Toss to coat completely. Pour blueberry mixture onto the crust and sprinkle remaining dough evenly over top. Bake for 25-30 minutes; until golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
