Baked Rhubarb Oatmeal

I’m trying really hard to be healthy lately. All I want these days are tacos, cocktails, and ice cream. I blame it on summer, but I really need to get my act together. With all of this amazing summer produce it isn’t very hard to eat healthy. I’m running out of excuses to live on […]
