I absolutely love things that are easy and I think “easy” should be the norm for all things in life. Unfortunately, this is not the case and many things are complex, complicated, and entirely lacking ease.

When I find something complex that is easy, it is a win! This recipe for Baked Pumpkin Steel Cut Oatmeal is just that: an easy dish that has complex flavors. In addition, it would work well with any number of fruits, making it a year round breakfast treat!

The bonus is that it makes a nice big pot of oats, so I won’t have to think about breakfast this week – which is a very good thing because my work schedule is currently insane right now.

Have a good week, Gentle Readers – nourish yourselves both inside and out!
