It’s often the simplest foods that provide the most comfort. I’ve ordered Café Bernardo’s steel cut oats on more than one occasion when I’ve been battling the blues – this homey, rustic dish is about as nurturing as it gets. I adore the toothsome texture of this oatmeal – it’s not soft and baby food-like (think: commercial packaged varieties) - and it’s topped with slices of ripe banana, toasted pecans and a judicious sprinkling of brown sugar. Just sweet enough, warm and soothing, this is a breakfast item that will raise your spirits.
