I am SO proud of these Grilled Mini Turkey Taco Patties and the colorful corn relish topping. I couldn’t have done it […] Read more »

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe

I’ve been experimenting a lot with oatmeal recipes lately, especially those that I can whip up quickly. Since oatmeal is so filling and relatively healthy, I’ve been trying to eat more of it. The thing is, I can’t eat it plain. In fact, I can’t even eat it with just a bit of brown sugar or something in it. I need STUFF. Chunks, variations, flavors.
