First of all, I want to wish my lovely sister a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! She’s 13 today, and yes, taller than me. Actually, when we found out that she was taller last week, she jumped up and down and shouted: “YES! I’ve been waiting 13 years for this!”. I, on the other hand, was not so enthusiastic. :P

This morning, I made Katie’s Single Lady Carrot Cake Cupcake for her, and she LOVED it!! Tonight, we’re taking the group out to her favorite restaurant, and then we’re all coming back to the apartment for a dessert time!!!!!

Now, I’d like to share the recipe that I promised. You’ve probably all seen a variation of it before, but its a family fav, so here ya go:

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal Bake

3 C oatmeal

2 t baking powder

1 t salt

1 t cinnamon

1 C brown sugar

1/2 C oil

2 eggs

1 C milk

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Combine all ingredients and bake in lightly greased 9X9 baking dish at 350 F for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. On and I usually sprinkle some more cinnamon on top! That’s all there is to it! :D

Yumminess! :D

The past couple of days have been sort of an emotional roller coaster, but I feel that once things settle down a little bit, I’ll definitely stabilize. Thank you all for your sweet words of encouragement!This is a great part of blogging!

Oh, and before I forget, last night, I had half of a MONSTER of a sweet ‘tater! I weighed it and it came in at about 14 ounces!!!!!!! Here’s what it looked like:

Wrapped in plastic, so you can’t really see how huge it was, but believe me, it tasted sooo good! Now, I’m trying to think of a way to use up the other half…any ideas? I usually just eat it baked with cinnamon, but I’ve been looking for something a little different to do, and figured that this was the perfect opportunity! :D

I had better get going….bout to do some strength training!!!!!!

    I personally love a savory take on sweet potatoes with cumin, chili powder, and a bit of salt.

      The best thing about the oatmeal bake is that you can top it with pretty much anything! hahaha
