Creamy Oats & The Gift of A Photo

by HEAB on December 6, 2010

Two things to share with all of you today:

1) I am obsessed with High Tea Oats and have been eating them almost everyday for breakfast.

My method…

First I cook 1 cup rolled oats on the stove-top with 2 cups water and a pinch of salt. After they’re done, I stir in one spoonful of jam. This morning, I used Jammies Chocolate Pear.

While my oats cool, I whip 2 TBSP of heavy whipping cream in a large mug with my Aerolatte Milk Frother and then pour my oats in with the whipped cream.

Oh my goodness, I love it. The warm oats kind of melt the cream. It’s so rich, and the jam adds the perfect amount of sweet flavor. Have you tried High Tea Oats yet?

2) My friend Leah, a professional photo editor, has agreed to offer her services to one HEAB reader. Thanks Leah! I’m really excited about this giveaway as Leah is so talented. Check out what she did with this picture of me and my mom.

Pretty cool, no?

As winner of this give-away, you will send Leah a non-professional photo (take advantage of this for your Christmas photo!). She will then professionally edit the photo, providing you with 3 different looks. To win, please leave a comment below telling me about your most memorable holiday gift. Mine was a robot – yes, a robot. After begging my parents to buy it for months, they surprised me with it at Christmas. I think I maybe played with it twice…will never live that down! 😉

Keep in mind that if you don’t win, Leah is currently editing Christmas photos right now, and If you mention HEAB, you will receive a special holiday discount. Offer is good until December 15th, 2010, and you can click here to check out Leah’s website and see some of her work.
