Slow Cooker Fruit, Nuts, and Spice Oatmeal
**UPDATE - Made a second batch, using the full amount, actually had milk this time but everything else same as last time. Put it on Low, 3 hours. Perfect! Love this recipe!!*** - This is my first recipe using steel cut oats. Based on reviews talking about it burning, and knowing my slow cooker runs hot on one side, I was more attention than I will be in the future. I did cook on "Keep Warm" and ended with an hour on "Low" but next time I'll go a full 6 hours on "Keep Warm" and see how it goes. I had NO issues with too much liquid, didn't do the towel tip, and didn't add more than the recipe called for. I had no apples so I substituted in a fat 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce (made a half batch btw!). Didn't have pecans so subbed in roasted unsalted sunflower seeds. Lastly had no milk, so used evaporated milk that'd been cut with water (1/2 & 1/2) for the recipe. In the hopes my daughter would like this, I also added some stevia. Just finished eating a bowl that I reheated, adding a bit more milk and a drizzle of honey. Yum!!!

Pat's Baked Oatmeal
I've been trying to eat better and tweak recipes at the same time. I made this last night, and had some fresh out of the oven and some this morning as well and enjoyed both ways! It definitely wasn't sweet but that can be played with. I doubt it's sweet enough for my daughter but I'll revise this review when I've "teen-tested" this recipe. It'd be a great afternoon snack. I only used 1/2c brown sugar and added 1/4 tsp of stevia. Next time I'll try 1/2tsp of stevia to see if I like better. I didn't have any milk so I used equal parts water and condensed milk in place of the milk. I didn't have the "optional" ingredients but I added about 1/2 a cup each of roasted no salt sunflower seeds, dried cranberries and sliced almonds. Very tasty!! I think I'm addicted. Thanks for sharing this recipe! One last thing... are "old fashioned oats" the same as rolled oats"?? All my grocery had was old fashioned oats or instant.

Hummus and Artichoke Wrap
This recipe is such a pleasant surprise. It's flexible and versatile yet simple and fantastic. Both times I've made my own hummus, once the classic chickpea, but this most recent time I was using red kidney bean hummus. Still a fantastic wrap. I've also played around with the cheeses, using fresh Parmesan in my wraps to save on calories, recently using colby jack because that's what I had in the house, I've done with white and sun-dried tomato flour tortillas as well as wheat tortillas. My teenager, who swears she doesn't like raw spinach, hummus or artichokes (or any of the ingredients except the tortillas ha!) has always enjoyed this wrap. I give her a whole one in her lunch, or half of one as an after school snack. This more recent batch, I was doing off the top of my head, using a sprinkle of cheese. In looking at the recipe (to write this review) I definitely didn't use 1/4 cup of cheese per wrap like I did the first time I made this and YES, still a fantastic wrap.
