    I cannot wait to use this recipe when I have company to help me eat it! I'm cooking for a large group, too, this summer, so this will definitely come in handy then, too.
    My favorite stir in is cinnamon and raisins. Yummy!

    I am trying this tonight. I usually make ours with half milk and half water. we are fans of cinnamon, butter and a little bit of brown sugar. Usually we mix in either blueberries, raisins, or every once in awhile choc chips!
