I've been making a Pumpkin Oatmeal Casserole for nearly a year now. I have always wanted to change a few ingredients to make this taste more like an apple pie and this morning I did just that. I substituted applesauce for the pumpkin puree, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon for the pumpkin pie spice and diced fresh apples for the fresh cranberries. If you want to sweeten your own oatmeal according to your taste, I would leave out the honey and use it on your casserole as you like. I happened to only have dried cranberries so I used it instead of the golden raisins. The casserole smelled like apple pie on this crisp cool fall morning and tasted so good! The original recipe comes from the Gracious Pantry blog.   

On my own serving I cut up a banana and sprinkled it with a bit of trail mix that I had made for some extra protein. I will also include that recipe which comes from Food Network's Claire Robinson and is called Pumpkin Seed Cherry Trail Mix. I also used dried cranberries instead of dried cherries.

About Me
I grew up in Hawaii and lived for a time in Japan. After my marriage my husband was stationed in Germany where we travelled a lot and were exposed to different cuisines. My mother also tried new dishes that she read about in magazines. Dishes like lasagne and beef stroganoff were introduced to our family and we all learned to try new cuisines.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Chinese and Japanese dishes although I seldom make them as they are time consuming. I have become more intrested in healthier foods as I grow older. One of my favorites are roasted vegetables, unusual salad combinations and grilling meats. The internet and food tv shows enable me to broaden my horizons in the kitchen. My husband says that we never have the same dish twice. I'm always trying something new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make fried rice out of leftover rice and a few dishes such as beef broccoli or steamed fish. I also like island favorites like somen salad, Chinese gau, won tons, spam musube.
My cooking triumphs
I made a dinner from Alan Wong's cookbook:Deep-Fried Won Ton Brie with Fresh Pineapple Marmalade, Lemon Shrimp Salad (Hugh Carpenter), Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Gingered Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple Macadamia Nut Relish, Mango Ice Cream Sandwish with Macadamia Nut Cookies and Tropical Fruit Compote (Roy Yamaguchi).
My cooking tragedies
Two weeks ago Chocolate Cheesecake from Diabetes Forecast Magazine. Awful! I'd rather have the real deal and have only a teaspoon or two.
