Mother's Day is coming up and we absolutely love this cozy, nourishing baked oatmeal casserole, brimming with local ingredients. MwL lady Kristine, our resident kitchen-magician whipped up this recipe and it is like if coffee cake and a bowl of oatmeal made sweet love. So easy to make and is totally brunch-able! Our whole family LOVED it!
