Earlier this week, I did a guest post for Becky over at Olives ‘n’ Wine. Becky makes amazing recipes (I can’t wait to make this Butternut Squash Dessert this fall and her Banana Bread has my mouth watering), always inspires me to keep working at my fitness goals (she’s training for a marathon!), and she’s so kind. I’ve been feeling down about blogging and the lack of growth I’ve seen in my blog. When I left a comment saying such on a thought provoking post Becky wrote about blogging, she immediately sent me an email offering advice and support. It was by far the nicest, best thing that happened to me through blogging. It was really what I expected blogging would be all the time. All of this led to me writing a guest post for Becky.
I made Roasted Strawberry Baked Oatmeal. You probably remember those Balsamic Roasted Strawberries I made. I wanted to do something fun, yummy, and healthy with them. Baked oatmeal is my favorite go-to breakfast, so it was only natural to combine the two. This is an easy to put together, vegan, gluten free breakfast. It is healthy and hearty, but seems like a real treat with the creamy oatmeal, crunchy walnuts, and sweet strawberries. You don’t want to miss this recipe, so head over to Olives ‘n’ Wine to check it out! You’ll also want to stick around to check out Becky’s blog!

This looks so good! I haven’t tried roasted strawberries on oatmeal but it certainly gives it quite a delicious, gourmet touch!
How sweet of Becky to cheer you up when you were feeling down about blogging. I find blogging has so many emotional highs and lows. When I’m at a low point I just have to tell myself that only means the next high is just right around the corner
I’ve been wanting to try roasted strawberries for a long time and I love new oatmeal recipes!
That is such a good way to think of blogging, Christin! It is definitely a roller coaster!
Currently drooling at the thought of Momofuku cookies…mmm. And this oatmeal! Kind of want it as a second breakfast…
1. I love Momofuku
2. I LOOOOOVE this oatmeal! The roasted strawberries thing is genius!

Looks like great oatmeal. Just made a version of Momofuku cookies. Would be interesting to compare to the real thing.

Those balsamic roasted strawberries over oatmeal would make such a wonderful breakfast or even dessert! So nice to read that your fellow blogger was attentive to your needs when you were feeling down. And, by the way, your blog is great, it’s your creative outlet, it brings joy to you and those who read it. That’s already success!
Thanks so much, Julia for the kind words. I really appreciate that 🙂
I don’t even have a chance to enter because I don’t do social media? :(((( sorry that just doesn’t seem kind.
