Strawberry Oatmeal

"My family really enjoyed this oatmeal. When I made this recipe I made a few adjustments. I halved the recipe. I did used frozen strawberries which I cut in chunks. I used Splenda brown sugar substitute. When cooking my milk/water mix it seemed to curdle. I also took some advise of a reviewer and added the strawberries to the milk and water. This seemed to make the mix curdle alot worse. I added my sour cream directly to hot mixture. I got this recipe from Pinching Your Pennies."

    This is a great oatmeal! I keep coming back to make it again. Definitely use fresh strawberries and served them on top of the sour cream - then you can retain the freshness and get a little of the three layers in each bite (spread the sour cream out). I love the syrup that the brown sugar makes with the strawberries. I use nonfat sour cream, a tablespoon of sugar, about 9 strawberries and 1.5 tablespoons of sour cream per person. Yum!

    This is a great oatmeal, a little rich for every day but perfect when you want to treat yourself! Cooking the oats in milk and water gave them a wonderfully creamy texture. I used 1/2% milk and fresh strawberries and served as the recipe specifies, topping the oatmeal with the sourcream and strawberries, then just stirring them in as I ate. Really enjoyed this - thanks for posting the recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs, November 2008

    Thank you for submitting this recipe! I don't want to rate it cuz I changed it around a lot. I didn't use any water, used rolled oats & Splenda instead of brown sugar. I also threw in some nutmeg & cinn. I used frozen strawberries, and vanilla yogurt for a topping. I think I'll add the strawberries to the oatmeal so it'll heat through. Will play around with this; thank you!

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks. The minute I get a cookbook home I sit down and I read my cookbooks from front to back like novels. I work for the Elmira City School&nbsp;District and YWCA. I'm raising my&nbsp;8 yrs old newphew. I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons. I love the internet as there's so much to look at online even though you know where I spend most of my time! I enjoy going to yard sales and estate sales every spring - fall. I love gardening and have many different pretty flowers.</p> <p><br /><br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC2.gif alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt= /></p> <p><img src=http://i773.photobucket.com/albums/yy17/ZaarBrenda/Participation3-1.jpg alt=http://i773.photobucket.com/albums/yy17/ZaarBrenda/Participation3-1.jpg /></p> <p><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/blacktoesPAC2011.png alt= /><br /><br />My Star Ratings: <br /><br />1 * star rating is my family did not like it and we will not make it again. <br /><br />2 ** star rating is my family thought it was ok and we might or might not make it again. <br /><br />3 *** star rating my family liked or really liked it and we probably will make it again. <br /><br />4 **** star rating is my family loved or really loved it and we will have it again. <br /><br />5 ***** star rating is my family thinks it's outstanding and we could have it again tomorrow. <br /><br />No star rating is my family has not tried it but would like to try it.</p>
