I will definitely make it again! The boys loved it straight-up plain. Steve and I thought it wasn't *quite* sweet enough - he ate it with maple syrup drizzled over it and I liked it with maple syrup and milk in a bowl. Next time I will chop the cranberries, I think, so there's not such a burst of sour--though it wasn't really that bad, to save yourself the trouble.
