Muesli (with Pumpkin Seeds!)

I’ve been on a muesli kick for the last two weeks or so.

And just in time, because pumpkin seeds are on the list of healthy, affordable foods – and pumpkin seeds go great in muesli!

Pumpkin Seeds or Pepitas

If you aren’t in the know, muesli is a cereal combo (usually) made with oats, nuts, seeds and dried or fresh fruit.  Bananas have been my fresh fruit of choice lately, but frozen, thawed strawberries have been known to make an appearance in my bowl too.

How to Froth Milk at Home

July 19th, 2012 | Posted by Alison Spath in Breakfast - (14 Comments)

Whenever we get coffee from a coffee shop, I always get a Cafe Au Lait. I love the steamed milk in my cup, it’s just so… steamy. And frothy. And foamy. And seemingly impossible to reproduce at home without some giant, loud frothing machine.

During pregnancy, I totally lost my taste for coffee. But thanks to (very lovingly) popping this kid out, my taste for coffee is BACK, yo! And as luck would have it, a number of weeks ago I happened upon this post about making milk foam at home without a fancy schmancy milk steamer, and I couldn’t wait to try it.
