The very random Link up. #5 The girl behind the blog.

Welcome back for The very random Link up hosted by yours truly and my dear friend Sarah
This is our 5th edition and our 2nd topic which is called "The girl behind the blog"

                                                Yep, This month is all about you!! You excited yet?
                                                                                   I am!!

The very random Link up is not your ordinary link up. We will be doing topics different months.
Example: A vlogging month, about me month, and trying new recipes month.

One of my most favorite things about blogging is the relationships that come with it. the relationships that start out as a fellow blogger and turns into  a friend or even  a sister.
That is what these two ladies above have become in the last year. We've started out as fellow bloggers, to friends, to sisters and it is just so so amazing how God could use such a thing as blogging to bring us together. and we want that same relationship with you. That's why Sarah and I decided to start this fun random link up is because we wanted to find fun ways to get to know you and meet more of you! Will you join our very random community? 
 Each Month Sarah and I will pick a topic. It may be a vlogging month, a month of encouraging posts. anything. Some months we'll ask the questions and other months we just want to hear your thoughts and your heart. Have a topic or question  idea?  We'd love to hear it!
Today's question is:
What is your favorite recipe?
 Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! Not just because It's my first but also because it's the only meal I get to eat in peace and quiet. Where it's just me, Jesus and my cup of coffee. (unless Evie decides to wake up  extra early)

I've recently been on the search to finding oatmeal I liked.. Before we had Evelynne we ate instant oatmeal which is  good and all but I saw that the sugar and artificial content is pretty much just as bad as sugary cereals or even a desert!

Leon and I are working on a new lifestyle to eat more natural foods with less to zero artificial. We want to eat as natural as possible! That's when I found this oatmeal recipe that is not only filled with fruit but it's also delicious and it is perfect for eaters that can be a bit picky sometimes *caugh *caugh Evelynne and Leon.

Yes, my pepper shaker and little love even like my oatmeal which is amazing and I think maybe even a miracle! It's really good.. Especially on snow days like the ones we've been having.

What's that? Enough talking and get on with the recipe?? If you say so!
Best oatmeal ever recipe. (Because I forgot the actual name!)

You will need:
  • 2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup oatmeal, not instant
  • 1 pear, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1 apple,  peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped.
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins, chopped.
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
To do:
In a pot bring the water to a boil and add the rest of the ingredients listed. Simmer on medium low for 10 to 15 minutes or until the pears and apples are tender.
You can either serve now or puree in a food processor or blender for younger babies.  Add more water if needed.

If making this strictly for baby you will have plenty of left over. Pour into an ice-cube tray. Cover with plastic wrap or ice-cube tray cover. Place in freezer and when frozen remove from trays. Store in freezer bags. Each cube is 1 ounce. Will store in freezer for 3 months or in the refrigerator for 3 days.

I still can't get over how much my family loves this recipe. It's defiantly a keeper for my 14 month old and the rest of us!
