    Steel Cut Oats

    They're the best!   Especially with just a touch of cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla and a few golden raisins

    When I need some rock solid stability to your life, I can always count on oatmeal to feel grounded again. It just feels right after I have it. My skin feels more alive, and my digestive tract feels more calm. There is nothing like the comfort of oatmeal made the way you want it.

    Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

    I love oatmeal.  I grew up "Up North" in Chicago.  Oatmeal is a staple to Northerners like grits is a staple to Southerners.  Quaker Oats was the standard brand at home.  When I got out on my own I tried Three minute Oat Bran.  It was OK. Actually quite good for oatmeal...

    Apples and Cinnamon

    Wilford Brimley (you know, the guy in the commercials who was in the movie Cocoon)came over to my house and told me to eat Quaker Oatmeal cause it will help lower my cholesterol, so I did.

    Steel-cut oats are the best breakfast ever.  Just thought I'd mention.

    Savory Oatmeal

    I love oatmeal with a bit of salt. Occasionally I'll jazz it up with a tiny bit of butter... or cheddar and diced peppers/onions and egg... or even soy sauce and scallions. Mmmm. Is this weird?

    This May Ruin Your Taste For Ordinary Oatmeal...

    It's not often you get to follow your bliss and create something that really fills a need. A couple of months ago, we launched Farm to Table Foods, a company that produces craft made, organic oatmeal that in all modesty, is like nothing you ever had before. As far as we can see...

    I Eat It Raw

     Instant oatmeal, straight out of the package, just dump it in my mouth. Chew it a little, wash it down with some soda pop or juice. Repeat! Two packs and a can of pop every morning. Yum

    One Of My Favorites

    I have always loved oatmeal. It was a quick and tasty meal for breakfast or sometimes dinner. My favorite is Apple & Cinnamon. At one point in my life I ate 2-3 bowls a day. It something I want to get back into, but for the health benefits.

    How Oatmeal Inspired Me

    A couple years ago I was overweight and not happy with the way I looked in the mirror and in my clothes.  I wasn't extremely overweight but enough that my sister-in-law called me fatty one day when she was visiting at my house.  When she said that to me something clicked in my...

    With Rasins Or Dried Cranberries

    Just enough with a glass of juice to get you going for the day.  I do like the maple sugar flavors and to cook it in the micro is so easy, just have to make sure it doesn't overflow.
