    I've been eating oatmeal every day for two weeks. I'm trying every recipe I can find. This was great! I added extra pecans. Yum!

    This is so delicious! I have made it several times, and the leftovers are still wonderful the next day. I add different dried fruit and nuts also.

    This was good but too sweet. I decreased the sugar by half and it was perfect.
