Busy busy

Hello all, I know that I haven't been on since September but here I am again.
I haven't been consistent for a few reasons-

Blogging really does require quite a bit of time, and I haven't been able to fit it in the way I need to.
The past couple of months have been a little rough in my personal life, won't go into that (who really wants to hear it..haha)
And learning how to build a successful blog is not that easy, it too requires lots of time...not to mention the fact that I am not that tech savvy...also slows me down.
Anyway, with that being said, I'm here today to post a great recipe I conjured up myself, completely by accident, and because I was craving chocolate for breakfast, but wanted something healthy.
HOT COCOA OATMEAL!!! Yes, that's right, oatmeal that is like having a cup of hot cocoa..mmmm..warms the soul I tell ya:)
Ingredients for two servings:
1 cup oats ( I use the Quaker 1 minute brand)
1 3/4 cup of water or milk, whichever you prefer
2 tbs of unsweetened cocoa
2 tbs brown sugar (or more/less according to your taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla
Dash of cinnamon and nutmeg

Bring liquid to a boil, add cocoa, stir for about 45 seconds
Add oats, cook according to pkg
Add vanilla
Stir in brown sugar and add spices
That's it! It's soooo yummy and not too chocolatey..if that is even a word...yes it has to be..
I also added nuts to mine. Dress it how you want!
Enjoy :)
