All things Anne Wondra

Groundhog day, 2011. Mom Nature handed out a good ole fashioned Wisconsin blizzard. One look outside and we were in for the day. And if the past was any indication, we would not see a snow plow until mid-afternoon…or later. A perfect day for warm comfort food…like baked oatmeal, which I had never had and wanted to try. So one internet search and voila, a simple recipe from a bed and breakfast. It sounded yummy.
Like my grandmother, I can not follow a recipe exactly like it’s written, so I added a few raisins and chopped walnuts. And it was truly yummy, almost like a giant oatmeal cookie as the innkeeper had noted. And even better the next day. The recipe, if you’re interested, follows. When I make it again, I’ll cut the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. The walnuts and raisins will stay though. Enjoy.
