Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

winter oatmeal

during the colder winter months, i enjoy eating oatmeal daily.  both of these brands are my favorites, and i usually cook enough portions of oatmeal to last the week.

measuring the proper amount based on the package directions, i cook the oatmeal on the stovetop.  often, these brands take about 20 minutes to cook until perfection.  then, i save the oatmeal in the refrigerator and simply warm every morning in a matter of minutes.

oatmeal can be served with a variety of toppings, such as dried fruit, milk or half and half, nuts, fresh berries, maple syrup, brown sugar and even bananas.  i try to top my oatmeal with something different each morning and truly enjoy starting the day with this wonderful taste.  just delicious !
