  1. Made this very simple recipe twice over for the 2 of us to enjoy as a very late night snack (well, more than just a snack, really!) & it was absolutely delicious & comforting! Definitely something to make again, whether for early morning or late night! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
  2. I can't believe I never reviewed this, especially since I have made it so many times! A quick, easy and healthful breakfast that I highly recommend!
  3. Have been saving this to give a try and finally got around to it. It was delicious. The only thing I did differant was use steel oats as that's my favorite. Since they are not quick-cook I cooked them first a per the box directions. Then put all the rest of the ingrediants in a bowl and heated in the microwave as instructed and it turned out great. I've been wanting to find a way of adding flax seed to my diet and this works great. I'll be using this often for that quick go to breakfast.
  4. I have had this in my cookbook for a while and even keep the ingredients on hand, but am just getting around to trying this. it is delicious and healthy AND quick and easy to prepare. For me though this made more than I could eat. Next time I will scale it back to at least 1/2 cup oats and see how that works out. I did use a packet of Splenda as the honey did not give it a sweet enough taste for me but that is my personal taste buds. Loved it and I can even keep these ingredients on hand at work for a quick breakfast! Thanks teagirl!
  5. Mine took 3 minutes to microwave instead of 2, but other that that .. I believe this will become a regular in my house. Thank you!
