LIFE IS A JUST A BOWL OF REALLY GOOD OATMEAL...


You're looking at happiness in a bowl right now, folks. This is my favorite way to enjoy oatmeal year round: slow-cooked and topped with seasonal fruit, housemade almond pralines, a pinch of cinnamon and warm maple syrup. So where can you try this delicious dish? It's available at one of my most coveted in-town Atlanta eateries, Le Petite Marche, over in the Kirkwood neighborhood. There literally is nothing better than grabbing a table here on Saturday morning for a bite to eat while catching up on email, sifting through the Saturday Times, or just people watching. It's quickly become one of my favorite things to do. 

What are some of your go-to weekend activities?

  3. What is the ratio for these mixtures?

  4. I just wanted to point out that if you're going to make this spray mixture that it needs to be put in an opaque spray bottle, preferably made of aluminum like the one pictured above. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down quickly when it's exposed to light, losing its cleaning properties (that's why it comes in those brown bottles). I learned this the hard way with a different cleaning mix recipe I found online :/ Can't wait to try this recipe out, though!

  5. Hi! I was linked to your page when searching for ways of cleaning clarisonic brush head! Can I check how long can I keep the mixture for?
    And I also notice that you mentioned "lay it out to air dry", so that means I do not have to rinse it off till my next usage?

    Sorry for the questions& thank you for your patience!

  6. Hey there! Sorry for my delay. I would switch out the mixture every 2-3 months. And yes, you can let the mixture air dry on the brush head until you're ready to use it next. Thanks for your comment!
