Oatmeal Pancakes the Loser Way

More snow and howling winds…

God with a snowblower drives along top of a cloud, sending snow down...  Robert Mankoff


We got another 8-inches of snow yesterday.  It’s snowing now, this morning, with another 1 to 3-inches in the forecast for today, and more predicted for tomorrow and Friday!

OK, enough already, snow and wind gods!

It’s a good morning for pancakes and this recipe intrigued from the minute I heard about it.  I really like oatmeal and cottage cheese, but pancakes made with those ingredients ~ couldn’t imagine.  

It was surprising!  They were actually pretty tasty!

Of course, I put a pat of butter and drizzled a little syrup over the top.  I don’t know if that’s “The Biggest Loser” way or not, but after all, they’re pancakes!  And I’ll make them again!

By the way, you should seriously consider purchasing a Ninja Master Prep, if you don’t already own one.  Over the years, I’ve bought more food processors than I care to mention, and very rarely use any of them. 

Then, Bubba, my older son, gave me a Ninja one day, telling me I wouldn’t believe how great it is. He was so right!  It's set of double blades allows it to  evenly chop, mince, blend, dice, and puree in an instant, without turning food into mush, and crushes ice in a flash.

It’s powerful, just like a Ninja, easy to use and clean.  It has a permanent spot on my kitchen counter, taking up little space, unlike any food processor I own. The Ninja Master Prep is now my favorite hassle-free kitchen gadget!*

*This is just my opinion of the product.

Be sure to visit my friend, Linda’s blog, @My Kind of Cooking for great tips and delicious easy recipes! 


  1. Where can I get a Ninja, and where can I get some of these pancakes right now?

  2. Hum, oatmeal and cottage cheese
    not sure about this.

    M :)

  3. Val, I'm not sure since you're in Canada, but Amazon carries it online, and it sells in Target and similar stores here. Then you can try the pancakes! I hope this helps you! Good luck!

    Melinda, I thought the same at first. lol!

  4. I don't believe I have ever made pancakes. I like having them made for me. But the mention of Splenda caught my eye. I am a fan of Splenda.

  5. We had about 1/4 of an inch of snow (and other stuff) and it's above 40 degrees and melting. I have a Cuisineart processor that I use all the time. It's thirty years old!! I have a good recipe for cottage cheese pancakes but not with oatmeal. I think these look good--especially swimming in butter and maple syrup!


  6. Stephen, there you go! I'm all for Splenda too.

    Bonnie, you lucked out there! It has been snowing all day, not a lot of accumulation, thankfully. I'm wondering about your pancakes, I'll be looking for more recipes with cottage cheese.

  7. I just love anything with oatmeal in it and I have all the ingredients so guess what I am having for breakfast in the morning!

  8. These look delish, so fluffy. Interesting ingredients. Thanks for sharing:)

  9. Pam, Sorry about the snow! We don't miss it, that's for sure... Here, where we live in East Tennessee, we haven't even had an inch of snow all winter! Last winter we had 9" all season...and it melted right away. My wife doesn't like pancakes, so maybe I can convince her to try these! Thanks for the recipe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  10. I always wondered if they were I'll try them!

  11. I'm not sure about cottage cheese in my pancakes either.. but I'd be willing to give them a shot.. they look fantastic!!!

  12. Pancakes look lovely. Ninja processor? hmm..gotta see if they have this over here.

  13. Mmmmm think that looks so yummy. Keep warm. Diane

  14. If the pancakes themselves are healthier than you should have no guilt about a little butter and syrup! major yum.

  15. Totally intrigued by that processor! It actually looks like something I'd use!
    Pancakes look good, too - but I can't get cottage cheese... LOL

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
