Thankful Thursday: Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats – Kitchen with Keri

Thankful Thursday has fast become one of my favorite posts to write, because I get to highlight one of my extremely talented followers, and fellow bloggers.

For today’s edition of Thankful Thursday, I’m highlighting Keri from Kitchen with Keri: Adventures of a Home Cook.

Keri, who started out as a “reluctant” cook, discovered a love of experimenting in the kitchen. Here is a description in her own words:

“I’m not quite sure how to describe the type of home cook that I am.  I’m by no stretch a proper “homestead” -er, but I have successfully made several batches of my own yogurt!  I’m not a baker, I’m much more imprecise than that.  I’ve toyed with the idea of making my own cheese, and I finally canned my own jam!”

Keri has a terrific site with lots of wonderful recipes, and beautiful food photos. However, probably my favorite part of her site, are her “Adventure” articles, in which she describes her cooking experiments, including everything from eating healthy while cruising, to making sauerkraut, almond milk and yogurt.

One of Keri’s adventure articles that caught my attention was: Adventure: Flour, in which she talks about grinding her own flour and making proper sourdough bread. Despite being gluten free, I have been wanting to grind my own flour for a while for my family, so this really grabbed me.

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats


In our society of “convenience foods”, I am a firm believer in overnight oats. They are SO easy to make and super healthy. I make them regularly for my family, and am always looking for new ways to prepare them. These look amazing and couldn’t be easier to prepare. It literally takes just minutes and saves tons of time in the morning.

For the complete Overnight Oats recipe, you’ll have to head over to Keri’s site, so, follow this link:

I hope you head over and check out Kitchen with Keri. It’s a beautiful site with lots of great recipes and articles. Thank you Keri for following me. I truly appreciate your support and encouragement. God bless and Namaste! 🙏

Let us stop for a moment to pray and meditate.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. Thanks, Tamera! I appreciate the shout out! So interesting that you tried sourdough and your body still wasn’t happy with it. I would have thought maybe so. Have you tried using Einkorn wheat berries? Namaste, Keri
