She's lived in New Jersey her whole life where she's discovered the difference that using local, seasonal, farm-fresh foods can make in a healthier body and mind. Oatmeal is one of the healthiest choices you can make in the morning, and this cranberry orange baked oatmeal is filled with warm spices to start your day right!
