My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Breakfast Oats Parfait

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast recipe from a friend. I love oatmeal, and I love anything that can be made ahead. And a big plus here, is no cooking. You could have this made in 10 minutes, go jump in bed, and breakfast is ready when you wake up.

Breakfast Oats Parfait
4 servings
print recipe

1 cup quick cooking or old fashioned oats, uncooked (not instant)
2 (8-ounce) cartons nonfat vanilla yogurt
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 cups sliced fresh or frozen strawberries
Whipped cream, optional (I have to have it)

In a medium bowl, combine oats, yogurt, pineapple and almonds. Mix well; cover and refrigerate overnight. To serve, layer oat mixture and strawberries in 4 parfait glasses. Garnish with additional strawberries and add a little whipped cream if desired.


  1. I got the stuff at the grocery and will be putting this together tonight - YUM!

  2. We have had this and it is a favorite of my hubs.

  3. Bev, I'm on this when I get home...I LOVE oatmeal, too!!!...:)JP

  4. This sounds good. Now if only I could find a way to slow cook one serving of old fashioned oatmeal so it would be ready when I get up!

  5. This is SO good! I threw in some blueberries, too, and since I couldn't find my parfait glasses I put it in a mason jar. This would be a great "on the way to work" breakfast served that way :)

  6. I love the Mason jar idea. I was also thinking peaches when they come in season.
