If you have a fantastic recipe using Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats, you still have a few days to join in on the fun!  Go here for details!
In the meantime, if you are an oats fan, you will go crazy for my skillet cake!  I especially love making this in the summer because I don't have to turn on my oven.
