In keeping with a slow Sunday morning -- and the fact that I have a 4-L jug of milk in my fridge -- I decided to cook up some oatmeal on the stove. I seldom make stove-top oats, but when I have both time and milk on hand, I can't resist making Pepita's Dominican-style oatmeal, a five-star gem from AllRecipes.com that shouldn't be overlooked for its simplicity. This Dominican recipe makes the creamiest, tastiest, most delicious oatmeal you can imagine -- and, with 20 grams of protein, keeps you satisfied until lunch.
- 1.5 cup milk
- 0.5 cup quick oats
- 1 tbsp white sugar (reduced from 2 tbsp in the original recipe)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- pinch salt
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes until creamy.

I hope you try these oats and love them as much as I do!
