Oh boy, was this delicious, Parthenia! I was worried there might be too much brown sugar and raisins, but it was just right for two servings. It was pretty sweet, but we like our oatmeal on the sweet side. I will definitely make this again because it?s so easy to prepare, and it?s a great oatmeal recipe. The only thing I would do differently is to probably add a little more half-and-half, maybe another 1/4 cup so it?s an equal amount as the cream (and it?s more for a creamier texture, not to improve the taste because it?s really good as written). Made for the 2013 My 3 Chefs event.
