VBS: Tia, you are one American’s favorite sisters, a most recognized twin and a foodie. Now you have partnered with Quaker Oats sharing new oats recipes of your own.
TMH: Yes, I’ve partnered with Quaker and we’re talking about one of my favorite and America’s favorite meals of the day breakfast.
VBS: Tia, it’s no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Tell my audience more about America’s breakfast trends and what’s your favorite breakfast dish for your family?
TMH: At our home, pancakes are our family favorite. Our two kids, Cree and Cairo, are big fans. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast and I’ve always had Quaker Oats in my pantry. I’ve learned other Americans are as nostalgic about breakfast as I am inspired me to create my Banana Chocolate Oat Pancakes recipe that combines two of my favorite things – oats and pancakes. Cooking pancakes as a family on the weekends is one of my best childhood memories, and I’ve carried on that tradition with my family now. You can find my recipe quaker.newsmarket.com.
