Horseradish Dill Roast Beef Dinnah.

Anyone watching The Chew? While they still have some bumps to work out, I quite enjoy it. Mostly because of Clinton Kelly, who I think is pretty awesome. When I watch the show, I love his long island pretend-accent, and I can totally hear him saying “roast beef dinnah”. I can also hear anyone in my hometown Boston saying the same thing, but anyway…
This roast beef was so good and so easy. If you’re anything like me, different cuts of beef totally baffle you. I found this guide online and I literally brought it to the grocery store with me to help me find the right cut for roasting. Handy! I served this with simple roasted carrots and individual potato gratins (recipe to come soon).

Vegetable Tian

This is a dish that has been on my list forever. I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to make it — I tend to always have the ingredients on hand, especially in the summer.

Slow-Cooker Steel Cut Oats

When i read about cooking oats overnight in a slow cooker, I was psyched. I love a hearty bowl of oats in the morning during the colder months, but I would rather spend a spare 30 minutes sleeping rather than cooking oats. Sue me.

I used to frequent those little individual packets of plain oatmeal, until I read about how many nutrients are lost the more oats are processed. Steel cut oats are barely processed, are a great source of fiber and protein, and are really worth the extra effort. Cooking them in a slow-cooker removes a little bit of the *oaty* flavor, but it’s still a nice way to shave a few minutes off of morning cooking time.

I love to eat them with a sprinkle of toasted wheat germ, sliced bananas, and some natural peanut butter.

Banana Soft Serve

Ok, the blog that I found this “recipe” on said it would change your world. And it WILL. Take a few ripe frozen bananas, cut them up, put them in a ziploc, and stick ’em in the freezer. Blitz in a food processor for 5 minutes and BLAMO, instant “ice cream”. No fat. No dairy. No added sugar. Instant whipped banana goodness. Do it.
