THIS is so good. y'all.
I saw it being made on Dr. Oz one day a while back.
(Yeah, it must've been nap time or something and I was trying to find another Doc besides McStuffins to watch.)
The recipe comes from this awesome blog. I love all her recipes, check her out!

It's so so easy and really yummy. I like it on it's own or as a side dish to some chicken or even steak pieces. There's really lots of winning things about this dish, in my opinion.
1. it cooks in the MICROWAVE. yes, it does.
2. my kids love it.
3. Rosemary. enough said for me.
4. did I say it cooks in the microwave?
5. it's gluten-free.


you need:
1 cup quick cooking old fashioned oats
2 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
2 TBSP low fat (or fat free) cream cheese
1 TBSP rosemary (I didn't have fresh but it'd be so good if it was!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

In a large microwaveable bowl, mix together the broth and the oats.
Cook between 3-4 minutes depending on your microwave's strength.
Take it out and stir.

While out, mix the peas and cream cheese in.
Then put the bowl back in for another 3-4 minutes, watching to make sure your oats dont boil over.
Get them to the thickness you like your oats.

Take it out and stir in the rosemary, salt and pepper.
and WALA! (is that how you spell that?)
You have a yummy dish done in like 10 minutes total.

I haven't shared a recipe in a while, but I really am wanting to get back into that.
I feel like it helps me branch out my cooking a little more, try new things, and get new ideas of what works for my family. SO I plan to start cooking sharing recipes more. :)
Wanna join me?
If you have a recipe you would love to share, let me know and I'd love to have you guest post with it!
