This past week…
I BINGE watched Scandal
I BINGE drank lattes
I BINGE read The Boston Girl
I BINGE watched March Madness
I BINGE listened to Serial (finally crawled out from under the podcast rock!)
What are you BINGING on?
With all of this talk about binging, it’s only fair to share a recipe. I had a brunch potluck date with a few of my friends this morning. As we divided up food, I volunteered to make a baked oatmeal. One of my friends doesn’t like eggs, so I went in search of an egg free baked oatmeal recipe, and actually found quite a few.
This one full of apples, walnuts, and cinnamon looked so good that I had to make it!
I made a few changes to the recipe (what…brown sugar expires?! I’m out of cloves?!) and crossed my fingers that it was going to turn out. I’m always so nervous bringing a new recipe to a friend’s house, so I also made a HUGE fruit salad.
Needless to say, Cooper was no help at all!
I had a fantastic day catching up with old friends over mimosas! And the baked oatmeal was delicious…like super duper make again good! After brunch, I headed downtown for some wedding stuff.
I caught the most gorgeous sunset on my drive home and after a super busy weekend, I was thrilled to be back home to BINGE on more Scandal.
And maybe BINGE on sleep : )
Baked Apple Spice Oatmeal
Adapted from The Curvy Carrot
4 cups milk (I used almond coconut milk)
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
2 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups chopped apples (variety of your choice)
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon allspice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, sugar, butter, and cinnamon. Stir occasionally until the butter is melted and the mixture is well combined. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until mixed.
Lightly spray a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Pour the oatmeal into the casserole dish, cover, and bake, about 45 minutes or so.
Top with fresh apple slices and raisins (if desired).
