I eat a lot of oatmeal breakfasts and always with cranberries, but I've never thought to try subbing juice for the water before. This was absolutely genius! I used orange flavored dried cranberries, a dab of Chilean honey and some fresh ground cinnamon. I cooked mine a little longer, just cause I like a little thicker consistency. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this idea, Rita! Made & enjoyed for the 2012 All Aboard the L-O-V-E train! tag game
