All things comforting

One of my favorite foods is oatmeal. Yes, you heard right folks, oatmeal. I am constantly changing up how I eat it so I don’t get tired of it. I’ve decided I’m going to start recording my oatmeal recipes for posterity or whatever.

Cranberry-vanilla oatmeal

1/2 cup of
quick cooking oatmeal
1 big handful of washed fresh or frozen
dash cinnamon
1/8 tsp vanilla
water, milk or soy
single serve container of vanilla yogurt

Mix first four ingredients together in a bowl. Slowly pour in your liquid of choice until the liquid just starts to cover the oatmeal. I prefer soy milk but usually use water since I often heat my oatmeal at work. Microwave the mixture on high for a minute and a half. Stir and then pour the vanilla yogurt over top of the oatmeal.

Ta da! You’ve got the perfect mix of tart and sweet, warm and cool, and mushy and firm all in one bowl. My gift to you.


  1. I'll share my favorite oatmeal recipe too. Quaker oatmeal makes a creat apple cinnamon flavor. Take two packets, open and add water. Yum. I realize this isn't much of a recipe, but I don't have cranberries and soy milk hanging out around my house. Plus I throw the oatmeal flavor packs into my book bag at the last second and eat it at work.

  2. I can see LogoAnn isn't going to be featured on Food Network anytime soon.

    I like maple syrup in my oatmeal. I don't like the packets because they have too much sodium in them. However I have been known to secretly have a pouch of it when I am starving at work. I make it in a coffee cup and then no one know what I have.
