toasted oats with yogurt & fresh applesauce

Remember way back when I declared myself a genius? Well, I’m toasting oats again and riding those genius coattails into fame and fortune. Okay, there’s no fame and certainly no fortune, I’m still half asleep and haven’t had my daily dose of caffeine yet. But I can most certainly tell you about the amazing breakfast I had last week. Read all about it and grab the recipe on Poppytalk.

I realized I had twittered about this, but never posted a link here. Want to find out more about me? My small business heros, Lauren Bacon & Emira Mears interviewed me on their blog. Go on, read all about it. If you haven’t read their book, The Boss of You: Everything A Woman Needs to Know to Start, Run, and Maintain Her Own Business, go out and do it now! It’s filled with practical and inspiring advice about running your own business (and it ain’t just for the ladies). I was also very recently interviewed by Karencilla from Sweet Little Hearts. So please go on over and say hi.

Also, how about a little more self-promotion? My etsy shop is filled to the brim with lots of new cards, including seasonal holiday cards. If you haven’t dropped by in a while, go on over and take a peek. If you are in Vancouver, I’ll be setting up shop at Toque at the Western Front, November 27th and 28th and at Got Craft? on December 6th.

    Ooo, me likey. The Gingerbread People card is great, love the hand signs series, and the squirrels farting. Will have to jump back there when I have more time and fill up a cart.

    You are a talented gal.

    I was lucky enough to be brought on a guided tour of an oat mill this week and came away with a ton of oats. I will be toasting them forthwith.

    Aw shucks, Amy. Thanks so much!

    Tanya, Got Craft is always a ton of fun. Def something to check out locally!

    Stephchows, I love big bowls of yogurt and granola. This is something just a bit different.

    Daily Spud, good luck on your oat toasting adventures. I'm jealous of your oat mill adventure!

    Lele, it's an old Le Cruset saucepan that belonged to my mom! She got it as a wedding present and now it's mine. I love it so much!

    Sarena, I love it too. Applesauce is so easy to make.
