  1. Hi Jennifer, just wish to let you know that we had this for breakfast this morning and it was great! We love it! Many thanks for the lovely recipe!

    1. I am so glad you liked it Abby. Sometimes I make it just because I like the way the house smells when I do ;)

  2. Jenn, this is a fantastic recipe. My youngest loves his oatmeal and this will save me time in the morning :)

    1. I am all about getting it done the night before. From setting out clothes, to packing up lunches. This just makes it easy to get ready to go in the morning. And your house smells good too!!

  3. Thanks for the recipe! I used old fashioned oats and cooked for about 6 hours on Low. I served with a sprinkle of brown sugar and some milk. So thick and hearty!
