Monday, November 18, 2013


Eating a bowl of Oatmeal in the morning is the perfect way to start your day. I grew up eating cornmeal, farina, grits, but Oatmeal was always my favorite. My mom made it creamy and full of flavor. I like to add cinnamon and cloves to the oatmeal, it gives it a fragrant, sweet and warm taste.

I enjoy eating oatmeal anytime of the day. I love to eat it on those cold winter days, sitting by my fireplace under a blanket, relaxing in front of my television. 

Oatmeal is not only delicious, but it's really good for you.


1 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup water
5 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
8-10 cloves
2 sticks of cinnamon
1 pinch of salt

In a sauce pan on medium heat add the whole milk, evaporated milk, water, sugar, ground cinnamon, cloves, cinnamon sticks, vanilla and salt.  Bring to a boil then add the oatmeal.  Cook and stir for about 15 minutes or until the oats are cook through.  Before serving make sure to take out the cloves and cinnamon sticks and discard.
