What’s In My Bowl & Do You Want Some?

I love playing Guess the Grain with you guys…

Any guesses?

It’s millet porridge, my new love (although oat bran is still my favorite!). Inspired by Desi, I soaked and toasted a cup of millet.

IMG_5981.JPG

I then ground the millet grains into flour and followed Desi’s recipe for a big bowl of delicious porridge.

Toppings included Almondie Almond Butter and my favorite preserves.

Johnathon Taylor Thomas!

Julie May 25, 2011 at 10:14 am

I was a Kirk Cameron/Growing Pains gal. I also loved C Thomas Howell in the movie, Side Out. No one seems to remember that movie much except for me!

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 10:16 am

Julie,
Don’t remember Side Out, but I loved C Thomas Howell in Soul Man. :)

Jamie May 25, 2011 at 10:17 am

I LOVE LOVE LOVED Leonardo DiCaprio!!!! Still do actually :) Titanic??? come on!!!! sighhhh what a dreamboat…

Hats @ See How She Runs May 25, 2011 at 10:19 am

I’m with you on the MJF crush. Back to the Future are my all-time favourite films. I also quite like Doc Hollywood and The Frighteners.

Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing May 25, 2011 at 10:20 am

I had a crush on Sean Astin in The Goonies…! I find this hilarious now. I just really love a good dork (and I married one, for sure; getting his PhD in Philosophy. I think that qualifies ;) ).

As a child I LOVED Uncle Jesse on Full House (ok still do). I did not marry him.

Hayley May 25, 2011 at 10:24 am

I liked Jonathan Taylor Thomas! I thought he was so cute. It’s funny to watch reruns of Home Improvement and remember how much I used to like him…

Kat May 25, 2011 at 10:28 am

I was totally a fan of Zach Morris! go saved by the bell :)

Jackie B. May 25, 2011 at 10:31 am

That’s SO easy -
Jonathan Taylor Thomas. No question.
Then he disappeared…

birdie to be May 25, 2011 at 10:32 am

JTT for sure… Or Josh Hartnett.

lindsay May 25, 2011 at 10:34 am

oh yes m’am. I just made some millet myself so I will go post it on my wall. WOW, look good.
Hope the storms are not affecting your HEAB. Praying for all those in your area.

p.s.
I liked Zach morris and I had weird crush on christian slater, I know BIZARRE!

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 10:44 am

Lindsay,
We’re okay – the storms have been bad, but no tornadoes. What a horrible season for tornadoes. It’s been awful in so many parts of the country. :(

Lauren @ WWoB May 25, 2011 at 10:34 am

Ohhh that looks super creamy! I am getting sick of oats and oat bran, so Im thinkin’ its time I expand my breakfast grain horizons!

Also – I just made vanilla bean tahini cookies (that rock my world) and I was wondering if you had any ideas of how to heabify them? Or heabify vanilla bean sugar? Each cookie is pretty low sugar anyway, but it could be cool to have a heabified version!

I crushed HARD on Heath Ledger as a child. I wore all black when he passed…

susie May 25, 2011 at 10:36 am

Shaun Cassidy!!! Oh yeah, I used to sport my tshirt with his iron on LOL

Natalia - a side of simple May 25, 2011 at 10:37 am

Leonardo DiCaprio when he was on Growing Pains. I wouldn’t mind him living in my school at all :)

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) May 25, 2011 at 10:39 am

The millet looks delicious!

As for the crush…River Phoenix! I had his pictures all over the back of my door. I’m pretty sure I just aged myself on this one.

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 10:43 am

Sarena,
Well, you and I are about the same age, and I had loved River too. Was quite sad when he died. :(

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) May 25, 2011 at 10:45 am

I felt confident with my answer since you said Michael J Fox. Birds of a feather flock together (so to speak). I was really sad too. His life was way too short.

Desi@ThePalatePeacemaker May 25, 2011 at 10:42 am

1) Leonardo DiCaprio, and
2) YAY FOR MILLET PORRIDGE! :o ) Looks so yummy with your choice of toppings… mmmmmmmmmmm

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 10:43 am

Desi,
Yay indeed. Loved it. :)

J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) May 25, 2011 at 10:45 am

Ooooh millet porridge looks so creamy! I thought it was banana soft serve at first glance.

Growing up in the 80s… Girl, Alex P. keaton was mine! Step away! Hahaha :)

brandi May 25, 2011 at 10:46 am

i like them on FB! i need to try this millet porridge. it’s our new favorite grain!

What I am really liking though, in addition to the awesome looking recipe/food, is that BOWL!

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Averie,
Anthropologie has the best bowls!

VG,
Really? She has some great recipes!

VeggieGirl May 25, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Yes… and I’ve already left two comments about it on her site out of excitement and surprise. She probably thinks I’m insane now, haha ;)

Desi@ThePalatePeacemaker May 26, 2011 at 12:10 am

Leo DiCaprio won my heart in titanic. Totally crushed on as a kid!

Sarah May 25, 2011 at 10:56 am

Done and Done!! And I agree with Erica, Leo hands down!!

Michelle May 25, 2011 at 10:59 am

I was in love with Tom Cruise (think Top Gun) and Chris O’Donnell. Both are definitely cuties!

Autumn Tao May 25, 2011 at 11:02 am

Def. Alex P. Keaton. I confessed this to my husband just last week while we watched the re-run where he falls in love with Ellen. She got him on TV and in real-life! Lucky gal.

Claire @ Live and Love to Eat May 25, 2011 at 11:12 am

Although I was in the JTT generation, my favorite was Andrew Keegan… I think he was in more Bop magazines than movies or TV shows though!

You make me want to try new grains for breakfast.

Kathleen May 25, 2011 at 11:12 am

Gotta go with JTT, too! My first Tiger Beat magazine had him on the cover :D

Laura (LunaChickRuns) May 25, 2011 at 11:19 am

I was obsessed with Tom Cruise. Seriously obsessed. Other crushes included Kirk Cameron, Leo Dicaprio, and Macaulay Culkin.

tracey May 25, 2011 at 11:20 am

I know I had a crush on Goofy (yes the animated Disney dog) when I was about 5. I am completely serious, I wanted to marry Goofy. As a matured it was definately the greatest american hero (don’t recall the actor’s name).

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 1:31 pm

Tracey,
No worries. I had a crush on Aladdin. ;)

Laura (LunaChickRuns) May 25, 2011 at 11:20 am

Melissa B. May 25, 2011 at 11:30 am

Kirk Cameron for me! I waited each week with so much anticipation for Growing Pains to come on, so that I could watch my love!

jen @ taste life May 25, 2011 at 11:35 am

Okay, I posted the contest to my facebook page.

Also, I can’t remember having any crushes on TV stars, it was always musicians! I was majorly in love with Eddie Vedder for years and years and years.

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Jen,
So was my best friend. She was devastated when he got married, but I think he’s divorced now…or remarried? Can’t keep up. Anyway, she was bound and determined to move to Seattle and live out the movie Singles and marry Eddie.

jen @ taste life May 26, 2011 at 7:28 am

He was married, then divorced, then ended up marrying and having children with someone who was born in 1977…and growing up I always thought I was way too young for him! I was wrong, apparently.

Ellen May 25, 2011 at 11:36 am

My crush was on Hayden Christiansen. He was SOO cute in Star Wars. :)

sarah May 25, 2011 at 11:38 am

1) I too was in love with Michael J Fox
2) Despite the age difference, I also had a total crush on Hawkeye Pierce on MASH. (I still kind of love Alan Alda) :)

Shannon C. May 25, 2011 at 11:39 am

Ralph Macchio, oh my! (How dare that goon to sweep his leg?) He still looks good, via my brief glimpses of him on DWTS!

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Shannon,
Haha, I was totally jealous of Elisabeth Shue in the first Karate Kid!

Evan Thomas May 25, 2011 at 11:43 am

When I was 6-8 I thought Melissa Joan Hart from Clarissa and Sabrina was the bee’s knees.

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Evan,
Haha, CD totally had a crush on Clarissa too!

Jess S. May 25, 2011 at 5:31 pm

oh my god, i haven’t thought about clarissa explains it all in YEARS. my sister and i used to watch that religiously. i thought she was so cool in comparison to my terribly nerdy self.

Yeah that’s probably just me and I probably shouldn’t admit that.

Rachel @ Grateful Girl Goes Gluten Free May 25, 2011 at 2:17 pm

I always am so inspired by your different grains, but I have to eat up my oat bran before I can try them! I was in lovvve w/ Leo Dicaprio!

Evan May 25, 2011 at 2:19 pm

That millet porridge looks divine! Soaking/toasting is a great idea- no bitter aftertaste, and a rich, toasty flavor. Perfect!

And, as for crushes…

…I was a weird kid.

Jim Carey and John Travolta (circa Grease) were my childhood TV crushes. Clearly, my taste in men was (and might still be) questionable. :)

Nora @ Natural Noshing May 25, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Oh YUMMMM! I have a bag of millet that I now have the perfect use for – love your creativity! Def going to try this topped with almond butter and raspberry preserves…I am drooling…

I was in love with Emilio Estevez from Mighty Ducks! Quack, quack, quack! And I loved Leo D too!!

Anisha May 25, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Almondie butter looks so good!
It pains me to admit it but I was convinced that I would one day end up with either Jonathan Taylor Thomas or Devon Sawa. This was clearly before Leonardo DiCaprio came onto the scene and took over my celebrity obsessions for my tween years :)

Em May 25, 2011 at 3:20 pm

That porridge looks beautimous:)
Ah! I want to win the Almondie sooo bad! I miss my but butters so and I think Almondie would actually not hurt my tummy since the skins are gone.

Lovely bowl, by the way :)

In this order: Leonardo DiCaprio (as seen on Growing Pains), Will Smith, Johnny Depp. Nowadays I’m all about Robert Downey, Jr.

Marilu May 25, 2011 at 5:56 pm

I crushed on Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Justin Timberlake.
I liked Almondie Almond Butter on facebook.

i was sooooo in love w/ jared leto from my so called life! i’ve always been a sucker for the bad boys!

Alyssa May 25, 2011 at 6:02 pm

(Jumping up and down, waving hands): Me! I want some! That looks YUMMY!!!!

I’m almost afraid to talk about my girlhood crushes, as it makes me feel even older than I already do, lol!
Let’s just say that my high school and college days were taken up with many daydreams starring Timothy Dalton.

Monique May 25, 2011 at 6:06 pm

I’m kinda young, but as a younger person, I couldn’t keep my eyes off of Aaron Carter. Does he count as a movie/tv star? He’s a singer . . .

Isabella May 25, 2011 at 6:08 pm

I’m still a kiddo (13) and don’t have any crushes on any of those guys, instead, at night I dream about hummus, pesto, and tomatoes from the farmers market!

Sorry to be such a stinker. :D

Felicia (Natural + Balanced) May 25, 2011 at 6:16 pm

mmmm i love millet, what a fabulous idea! that looks unbelievably creamy!

Kalyn May 25, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT, as I affectionately called him!) I was slight– ok, wildly– obsessed.

Emily May 25, 2011 at 6:41 pm

I was (I mean, still am) totally into Leonardo DiCaprio!

Leah May 25, 2011 at 7:05 pm

Thanks, Heather for your great blog! I really enjoy reading your new posts and trying out your recipe ideas!

Thanks for reading. From one cool bowl lover to another. :)

I was in love with Christopher Reeve – “Superman” :)

I love that you’ve posted about soaking – I’ve been doing a bit of that recently and appreciate the benefit from it. I’m going to attempt to make a sourdough starter from brown rice to make a gluten free bread – I’m a little apprehensive and feel like I should be smarter – but I’ve got to find a way to make a good gluten free bread that I’m not spending an arm and leg for :) Have a beautiful week!

Plus… I had a total no-holds-barred crush on Jonathan Brandis. Remember him from Seaquest DSV and Ladybugs (that movie with Rodney Dangerfield? I was so in love with that boy… he was super cute! I was so sad to hear he killed himself some years later. He made my middle school years VERY interesting with my girlfriends!

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 11:49 pm

Konnie,
Someone else mentioned him, but I didn’t realize who he was until you said Ladybugs. Didn’t know he killed himself. How sad. :(

Baking 'n' Books May 25, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Do we have to do all three? I’d love to try some of that! ;)

..oh gosh – loved Alex Keaton.

But what about Kirk Cameron!? “Growing Pains” – dreamy ;)

Joanna May 25, 2011 at 10:07 pm

Not sure what it says about me that I crushed on Tim Curry. When I was little, HBO used to run a movie called “The Worst Witch” every Halloween. It featured Tim Curry as the Grand Wizard and I got way too excited about watching it every year.

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Joanna,
I remember The Worst Witch – I looked forward to it every Halloween. :)

Lynn May 25, 2011 at 10:21 pm

Oh man I loved Fred Savage like whoa when I was little! The Princess Bride was my favorite movie and I never missed an episode of the Wonder Years. I got a letter once “from Fred Savage” when my mom sent our address to one of those things that used to be in the backs of magazines. I screamed so loud when I got it my step brother spilled his cereal.

Kalli May 25, 2011 at 10:23 pm

No Facebook but I loved Kirk Cameron from growing pains! Crazy thing is I saw him not too long ago in Westlake not too far from my house. I was still smitten :)

Sarah May 25, 2011 at 10:25 pm

I’m only just entering the world of breakfast grain bowls. Used to be an eggs-for-break type of person, but I may have to peruse through some of your old posts for grainy-bowl ideas! These look delish.

Pamela May 25, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Even at the fair age of six, I recognized the sex appeal of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. I watched those movies over and over and over, and to this day I still don’t think there’s ever been anything sexier.

Hoping to try the Almondie – the almond milk trick looked awesome!

emily May 25, 2011 at 10:29 pm

you are going to laugh…. paul scofield (embarrassed look). i loved his shakespeare, and especially his thomas more in a man for all seasons. yes i like ‘em all. :) (it’s the old wizened look you see!

Out of curiosity, what’s millet taste like? I’ve never had it.

HEAB May 25, 2011 at 11:44 pm

Mimi,
Honestly, I think millet is my favorite gluten free grain. It’s got a mild flavor – a little nutty maybe?

Brookiej May 25, 2011 at 10:57 pm

Patrick Dempsey in Can’t Buy Me Love…I did like Alex Keaton too, but always thought he was too short for me! :) Gotta get my hands on this Almondie!

I’m dating myself here, but while my best friends were wacthing their Tom Cruise festivals (on VHS, in the living room), I was secretly crushing on Rob Lowe. His face was just beautiful!

Hannah May 26, 2011 at 6:12 am

Hi Heather, Thanks for the chance to enter to win the Almondie Almond butter! I did “like” them on Facebook. Tahini, too!! Excellent.

The millet looks deliciouus! I’m with you. Oat bran is my favorite. But this sound great. I didn’t like millet all that much when I cooked it…that may have been my technique…but this sounds great, especially the toasting part. Probably makes it nutty and yummy. Thanks and have a great day!!

Nikki May 26, 2011 at 7:32 am

I totally crushed on Heath Ledger for the longest time. LOVED his messy, curly hair. It is such a shame what happened to him, especially after such and spectacularly well done role in The Dark Knight. :*(

Emmie May 26, 2011 at 8:48 am

Oh man. Now I know he’s not a tv or movie star, but i was crazy over John Mayer as an early teen – before he became a creepy jerk and dated half of hollywood. :)

Even earlier than that, though – i loved Chris O’Donnell, especially as Robin in Batman Forever….swooonnn

Riss May 26, 2011 at 9:17 am

I’m going to have to try this… I have a container of millet in the pantry that NEEDS to be used, but I’m just not crazy about it. Every time I try a different grain I find myself longing for my tried-and-trues: oats, quinoa, and brown rice.

And I don’t even DARE switching up my breakfast grains from my beloved oats! I’m always left disappointed and wishing for a second breakfast. =(

Neena May 26, 2011 at 9:19 am

oh my gosh. I was a little boy-crazy as a child, so lots of famous crushes. The one that comes to mind first is Zachary Ty Brian from Home Improvement, because I met him at some car show my dad dragged me to. Also, Devon Sawa and Jonathon Brandis.

Love scrolling through other people’s entries and remembering some of these names/shows!!

YES ALMONDIE

I watched George of the Jungle so many times (Brendan Frasier) that I could say the lines one step ahead. Same with Robin Hood Men in Tights (Cary Elwes, although he is not the same dashing fellow he used to be…).

Ellie May 26, 2011 at 9:36 pm

Andrew Keegan of course!

Danielle @ weightsandmeasures May 26, 2011 at 10:19 pm

I was in love with Zack Morris. I watched Saved By the Bell faithfully. My sister and I would play make-believe and I always wanted to be Kelly. I seriously cried when they broke up. I still can’t here, “How am I supposed to live without you?” without thinking about that sad sad break-up.

Melanie May 26, 2011 at 10:28 pm

JTT, Leo DiCaprio and Christina Ricci. Wednesday Addams, hmmm….

Deborah May 26, 2011 at 11:39 pm

I had a crush on Jack Lord from Hawii 5-0 as a kid. I thought he was sexy standing on that roof with his perfect hair in the beginning of the show! He was much too old for me but I just thought he was gorgeous~

Katherine: Unemployed May 27, 2011 at 10:19 am

In lieu of a facebook (without one), I will say I am planning on marrying John Krasinski // Jim from The Office. I’m sure he has the same plans and we will be happily eating almondie

I had several phases of crushes. I believe the first was any or all of the Backstreet Boys. Whichever one my friends didn’t pick so I could be ‘original’ and we didn’t have to fight over them.
