It's cold...I know it, you know it. And what's better than a warm bowl of oatmeal on a frigid day like this? Emma at Food Coma has a nice recipe for some homemade oatmeal with lots of choices - which is awesome. I eat oatmeal for breakfast pretty much every day, so I'm excited to come to this recipe again and again to try new things. There's lots of ideas in the picture above, but only three recipes below, so if you find a great combonation, I'd love to hear it! Just send it to me at hope@417mag.com and I'll share it with all the other lovely readers. Oh, and that cute new header up there? It's from the talented Garrett DeRossett, who I'm proud to claim as my other half. Enough of my rambling, get your supplies and get to the kitchen (then eat it and take a nap, I'd suggest.
