How to Take Microwave Cooked Oatmeal From Simple to Exciting – All in Pictures

Microwave Cooked Oatmeal From Simple to ExcitingHere’s how to vary the flavor of microwave cooked oatmeal using commonly found ingredients. First, though, a couple quick points:

1. Flavors and tastes are exceptionally personal. The ingredients you see below work great together – for me, but my taste is not your taste. For example, you’ll see in the picture below that I use plain nonfat Greek yogurt, which I love for its flavor, thick texture, and high protein content. You, however, might not like Greek yogurt – or any yogurt at all for that matter – and that’s ok. Skip it, replace it with something else – and do the same for any other ingredient you see below to make your simple to exciting oatmeal all yours. Read more »

How to Cut a Fresh Pineapple – All in Pictures

How to Cut a Fresh PineappleYou bet winter’s starting to get its bone-chilling grip on us. Digging into a fresh, ripe pineapple’s a great way to take a tropical flavor vacation.

There are lots of great things about pineapple. One is that it’s usually not that expensive, especially if you buy it at a large discount club store. I pay about $3 for a pineapple here in Central Massachusetts. As for the fruit once you get it home – and ripen it – I love pineapple for it’s rich yellow flesh color, it’s terrific juiciness when it’s just ripe, it’s teeth satisfying soft crunch texture, and it’s magnificent more sweet than sour flavor.
