Orangette Oatmeal

Oatmeal has always been something that I thought I should love, because I love creamy things and I love oats. However, every time I’ve made it it’s had a gluey, gloppy texture, and tasted of cardboard. So I was super psyched to find this recipe on Molly Wizenberg’s blog Orangette, which has changed my oatmeal life forever. Somehow, by following the simple but specific steps, you get the most silky, creamy, light, delicious tasting oatmeal. I honestly don’t understand how it works, but trust me, it does. It’s kind of like magic. Maple-syrup topped magic. 

I was delighted to find this recipe on Orangette, because I read Molly’s book A Homemade Life years ago, and while I have almost no memory of what was in it (please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to), I remember absolutely loving it. Now I want to re-read it, asap. There are a lot of books about food out there, and I’ve read a ton of them, but I remember Molly’s warm writing style and delicious recipes as being really enjoyable.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    I'm the same way–I never retain any info when I read, and I LOVE to read! I could re-read the same books every couple of years and it would be like new.

    I've never been a huge fan of oatmeal either, but maybe that will change after this post!

  3. Next time you're downtown you should try this place called Oatmeals on West 3rd St.
    It is seriously life changing and will give you lots of good ideas for toppings combos!

    Definitely going to try this recipe at home. ๐Ÿ™‚
