2. While oven heats, add water and milk to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add oats and apple insides and reduce to a simmer until oats have absorbed all liquid. Then, turn heat even lower and add egg whites to pot and whisk continuously *important step* for 1-2 mins.

From breakfast apples to lattes, we’ve got breakfast covered! Since it is National Coffee Day, it’s only fitting that we virtually visit one of our favorite coffee shops. Kristin Stonesifer, Owner of House of Coffi in Dover, makes a Campfire Latte.
Perhaps you’ve heard the news – our beloved Captain Willie is hanging up his hat. It was 2005 when we first introduced you to Captain Willie Dykes. For the 15 years following, he would show us the beauty of Delmarva, as only he could, high in the sky in Chopper 16. Then on land…then by boat on Outdoors Delmarva. Throughout Captain Willie’s incredible career with WBOC, he’s frequently stopped by Historic Studio D. For the rest of the week, we’re looking back on some of favorite moments. We start in 2015 when Captain Willie came on the show to discuss his health scare.
