  1. Made for I Recommend Tag. I just love oatmeal and eat it just about every morning during the work week. This was great and now I have another flavor to add to my rotation. Thanks Mandy!
  2. This oatmeal is really good! I love the apple and caramel flavor. This made a nice filling oatmeal that was sweet enough on its own - didn't have to add anything else. Next time I may add a sprinkling of nuts. Thanks for posting this recipe!
  3. I loved it Mandy. I will do often. But I'll add more than a dash of cinnamon. I used 1 apple grated and skim milk. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for Zaar Star Game.
  4. This was very filling. I am not a huge fan of fruit in my oatmeal but wanted to try it nevertheless. I did use regular oats instead of quick cooking ones so the microwave time was longer. I made this for most of the family for breakfast this morning. Some liked it - some didn't. Personal preference I guess. :) I had a jar of apple pie filling I had canned that didn't seal in the fridge. I used this instead of the fresh grated apple. That worked well as it already was sweetened with cinnamon and sugar. I did leave off the caramlel topping though. I asked the family if they would like some and they gave me funny faces instead. I did add sliced almonds to my bowl though. That was very tasty. Made for the November Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
  5. Very nice flavor with the apples and caramel. It actually tastes like I'm cheating but I'm not! I used tart Granny Smith apple and thinly sliced them. I did have to add a little bit more oats and cook an extra 30 seconds in the microwave. Delicious!


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
