I love this recipe, it's a family staple! I was actually going to post it myself, but you've done all the work for me! The only changes I make are: I like a really creamy oatmeal, so I use 4 cups milk to 2 cups water; I frequently use raisins or cranberries instead of cherries, all depends on what I have in the house; and I often use pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar. Thanks, ratherbeswimmin, for a wonderful recipe that I'm about to serve right now!
