As you know, I have a fondness for baked oatmeal.  Since my current abode is lacking a working oven for the time being, I’ve made do with the very best oatmeal.  However, with the season is changing, I’m looking forward to baked oatmeals.  I made this this week when visiting my parents, and it’s delicious.  It packsRead more
