Come see me . . .


So . . .

I’m going to be changing things around.

Kind of like moving furniture, but way more dangerous because it involves me and the internet.

It has long been my desire to marry my two brands – Eclectic Whatnot + Ruthanne Photography; however, fear of the unknown has held me back. Thankfully, a sweet friend gave me a gentle kick to get me moving.

This space feels like home to me. I laugh and snort and carry on without any thought over here. On my photography page, I’ve really struggled with being myself.

I’ve finally decided to stop over thinking it and just go with it.

The other thing is . . . I don’t want the hassle of running two blogs. I want to share pretty pictures, chat about running and life and other random nonsense all in one place.

So, I’m transitioning over to my other site. It’s going to be a slow process. I don’t have it all figured out. Actually, I only understand about 5% of what I’m doing, but if I wait until it’s all perfect this will never happen.

I am moving posts from here over to there. Yes, I’m doing it one by one. Yes, I’m insane.

My vision is that my photography site will be almost exactly like this one – except I’ll also be posting about sessions with clients, specials I run, etc.

Right now, it’s a hot mess over there. I’m playing blog designer. Not all of the links work. In fact, there’s even Latin in parts of the blog.

All of that chaos added together should lead me to NOT encourage you to come see me over there, but . . . since when do I do things in order?

Homemade Cereal


About three months ago, I started making homemade cereal.

This was also about the same time my super woman cape was delivered via amazon (dot) com drone.


No, really. It’s okay.

Go ahead and pat me on the back.


My back needs a good pat. I mean, come on. Homemade cereal? That brings me to a totally new level of mommy sainthood, right?

Just kidding. I’m slightly exaggerating the level of my awesomeness.

Making homemade cereal is actually insanely easy. I kid you not.

I came up with this tweaked recipe from two different sources: Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook It’s All Good and 100 Days of Real Food.

Preheat oven to 250. Line two jellyroll pans, cookie sheets, or whatever else floats your boat with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine:

3 1/2 C rolled oats
3 1/2 C quinoa flakes
2 C unsweetened, coconut flakes
2 C slivered almonds
1 heaping T cinnamon
1 T ground ginger
1 T vanilla extract
3/4 C extra virgin olive oil
1 C raw honey

Stir until everything is fully combined. Spread evenly over the two pans.

Bake for 75 minutes. Stir every 20 – 25 minutes or so.

Once it’s cooled, I store the cereal in mason jars. Not sure how long it would last because it never lasts long enough for me to find out.

P. S. Dontcha just love how I completely skipped over the fact I haven’t posted in six months? Well . . . until now.
