Yum! I forgot time and it simmered for a little longer, but it was great! Very soothing. Made for early morning treat. Thanks! Made by a Looney Spoon Phoodie for ZWT#6.

This is yummy. I really like the fact that this does not contain tea! I liked the walnuts in this!! I used creamed honey instead of sugar to be healthier. Made for ZWT6, NA*ME regions for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.
