You may call me a repeat ‘offender’ if you wish. But, it was with a merry heart that I chose to revisit one of my favorite morning cereals. One of the great things about oatmeal is that it’s relatively inexpensive compared to other cereals. Most importantly, it’s loaded with heart-healthy whole grain properties that will provide sustenance for an extended period of time.

So, it was without hesitation that I grabbed my stockpot and added the following:

  • oatmeal – 1/4 cup
  • cinnamon – 1/2 tsp
  • raisins – 10
  • vanilla – 1/2 tsp
  • milk – 1 cup
  • dark sugar – 1 tsp

All ingredients were slowly simmered on low heat and brought to a thick consistency. Oatmeal was sweetened with a teaspoon of dark sugar. Cereal was paired and topped with fresh strawberries and a potassium-filled serving of ripe bananas. A generous amount of cinnamon was sprinkled on same.

Cheers to my heart!

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
