Like it: Stovetop oatmeal

We gave up on instant oatmeal packets for our family of five a while ago. Mornings still call for oatmeal, but now I make a pot of it at a time. Seriously, it is faster than trying to make the same amount with those little packets, not to mention cheaper and so much healthier. I … Continue reading

As the name implies, it is a sweet, fluffy cornbread. No dry, crumbly cornbread around here! We like to eat … Continue reading
