Cold Morning; Warm Breakfast

Cold Morning; Warm Breakfast


I am told that hot coffee is wonderful on a cold morning, but I cannot personally attest to that fact.  Although my mom drinks straight black coffee on a daily basis, I have no affection for the bitter drink.  However, I am always seeking for unique ways to cook oatmeal, and using coffee as the base sounded like an interesting approach.

To my surprise, I loved this oatmeal!  The dark taste of coffee was indeed warming, and the gingerbread flavor was perfect for a wintry morning.
