Baked Oatmeal with Peaches & Plums [Recipe]

This easy oatmeal bake is the perfect late summer dish.  The true summer version of this would be cold overnight oats because I use my oven a lot less mid summer.  And the true fall version of this would use apples instead of peaches and plums.  For those few weeks when summer is starting to fade but fall hasn’t quite arrived… this combination is perfect.

Cauliflower Tots [Recipe]

These cauliflower tots are a great low carb alternative to the traditional tater tot.  Plus they’re baked, which cuts down on unnecessary oils.  If you have an air fryer try using it in place of the oven to create a crispier texture!
