I am a huge fan of the photographer Penny de los Santos. For me words can’t describe what she creates and puts into a picture. Her stunning food photography has inspired me since I saw her work for the very first time.

Needless to say that I would like to eat any food related item she captures with her camera. This also happened this morning while I was on the search for a healthy breakfast and I stumbled over a picture on Pinterest  she created featuring savory oatmeal, sharp cheddar and an egg. Penny calls the dish sexed up savory oats.

The breakfast decision was made right away and here is my recreation of Penny’s sexed up savory oats. Enjoy!

While it looks delicious, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the egg on the oatmeal . . . LOL!!! And I LOVE oats!

I’m not familiar with this photographer, thank you for sharing! I’m going to go Google her now!

Have a wonderful 4th of July!

I do too love De Los Santos’ work. I have seen a few documentaries of her work. Now, I do enjoy your pictures a lot. Your photo of the mug and the spoon, is what I call “Kitchen Art”
