    I was always told to put the oatmeal in the water and microwave it... wrong...

    Try heating the water to a boil and then putting the oats in it. It isn't mush and it is much better to eat. I put loads of white sugar, some brown, and a little cinnamon. Vanilla is good if you have it and so are raisins. Fruit makes oatmeal weird though... I would keep the fruits on the side.

    Good for you for eating oatmeal, it is really good for you :)

    Some of my favorite ways to make oatmeal more exciting:

    - Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract when cooking the oatmeal.

    - Top with brown sugar or pure maple syrup.

    - Throw in some chopped bananas and raisins.

    - Prepare the oatmeal with milk instead of water for a richer consistency.

    Hi: I always add the milk right before taking it off the stove. Helps cool it down a bit and it doesn't get scorched. Some things you may want to try in your oatmeal are chopped canned peaches or whole raisins with a bit of cinnamon sugar added - yummy!

    I love putting oatmeal in all kinds of stuff... for Thanksgiving and Christmas I make a Cranberry Casserole:

    Filling:

    2 c. fresh cranberries

    3 c. chopped apples with peeling

    1 1/2 c. sugar

    Topping:

    1 1/2 c. oatmeal

    1 stick butter, melted

    1/2 c. brown sugar

    1/2 c. chopped pecans

    Mix filling and put in casserole dish. Mix topping ingredients and cover filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

    Oatmeal cookies are awesome, too.. I usually add a dash of pumpkin pie spices to make them even better.

    My kids love eating oatmeal; they ask for it every morning for breakfast : ) I use brown sugar, cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, and enough milk to make it creamy. Dynamite!
