This oatmeal recipe involves cooking the oats in milk instead of water. The resulting oatmeal has a wonderful, creamy consistency. The secret to the depth of flavor is toasting the oats and pecans before boiling, which brings out the nutty taste in both. Another fun way to cook this oatmeal is to add in fresh berries (blueberries or raspberries) during during the boiling process to change the color of the oatmeal. —The Sparkle Kitchen
