THE SIGHT OF THE oatmeal bubbling away on the kitchen stove was reassuring on those cold mornings. Whenever the mercury dropped below 50 degrees, this steaming, stick-to-your-ribs breakfast was required eating for all young scholars going off to school.My grandmother Lily Rose and her sister, great Aunt Cora, believed that few foods were as essential to youthful stomachs as cooked oats doused with milk, butter and sugar. They turned up their noses at Kix, Cheerios, Rice Krispies and all their Battle Creek offspring.

Oatmeal cookies evoke memories of the past This past spring, I was reading a little yellow flyer about Opie's Soft Serve Snowball stand located at The Junction in Catonsville and, in the information, the stand announced it would be selling Dad's Original Oatmeal Cookies. I purchased two bags this Father's Day weekend (how appropriate) and the cookies are delicious and just as I remembered. My three children went to St. Mark School on Melvin Avenue and after school they would stop at the bakery on Winters Lane and purchase what were called "broken cookies" and eat them on their way home from school.

Q. I have long suffered from severely dry, chapped hands, especially after working in dirt, washing dishes or handling certain vegetables. My hands would not only be very dry and bleed, but would also develop tiny blisters that would spread. My dermatologist prescribed Lotrisone, and I used it for several years. This ointment had to be applied to the affected area often, however, so my prescription lasted only a couple of weeks. And it is expensive. I finally found a lotion containing oatmeal (Aveeno)

Item: Fantastic Hot Cereal Cups What you get: One 1.7-ounce container Cost: About $1.40 Nutritional content: Cranberry Orange Oatmeal - 180 calories, 2 grams fat, 0 grams saturated fat, 210 milligrams sodium; Wheat N' Berries -170 calories, 1 gram fat, no saturated fat, 230 milligrams sodium Preparation time: 5 minutes with boiled water Review: As an oatmeal lover, I had high hopes for these organic cereal cups. Unfortunately, my hopes were dashed with the first bite. While the Cranberry Orange Oatmeal and the Wheat N' Berries Hot Cereal smelled good and fruity, they both had the consistency of sludge and tasted about the same.

Gertrude Lyles of La Plata said she wanted a recipe "for a dessert served in the employees' cafeteria at the Greater Southeast Community Hospital. It had apples, and cranberries with oatmeal, I think. It is similar to a brown Betty dessert." Gail Ellis of Westminster responded with this version. "This recipe was given to me over 25 years ago by Carolyn Roeth, a friend and Catonsville neighbor. It is simple to make and great as a side dish or as a dessert with Cool Whip or ice cream."

Ramona Cooper from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for making a cookie similar to the "Dad's old fashioned oatmeal cookie" that used to be available in Baltimore many years ago. It turns out that Dad's Original Scotch Oatmeal cookies have been around since the turn of the century and, while no longer available in Baltimore, they are still being made by Dad's Cookie Co. in St. Louis. The cookies are available at the company's retail outlet in St. Louis or by mail order through their website.

Gaila Droegemeier from Centerton, Ark., was hoping someone would have the recipe for a Weight Watchers oatmeal cookie. She had a recipe some years ago but misplaced it and she has not been able to reproduce the wholesome-tasting cookie to her satisfaction. A quick search on the Internet turned up several promising recipes. I tested one by Michelle Marshal that she posted on a site called Suite101.com. I decided not to tell my testers that it was a Weight Watchers cookie. Based upon how fast the batch was gobbled at my house, I doubt anyone was aware that the chewy and delicious cookies were also low fat and relatively low calorie.

Lumpy, bumpy and hopelessly old-fashioned, the oatmeal cookie lacks any semblance of foodie street cred. Panache? Style? Decadence? Modest oatmeal's got none of that. But its very plainness, its unabashedly humble stance, could explain the very reason people seem to love oatmeal cookies a teensy bit more than all the rest. America, it seems, loves an underdog. Even in a cookie. And in oatmeal, people have got their Cinderella. When The Baltimore Sun put out a call last year for holiday cookie recipes, editors were surprised to see quite a few spins on the traditional oatmeal cookie.

Susan Ingram of Winchester, Va., was looking for a recipe for low-cholesterol oatmeal muffins. She said that a recipe was printed on the back of a Quaker oatmeal box sometime in the late 1980s, but she no longer has it. Christine Todd of Cleveland searched the Quaker Oats Web site and sent in two different recipes for oatmeal muffins, both of which were low-fat. I tested the one that had a streusellike topping because I thought it sounded like the more interesting of the two. While this may not be the exact recipe from the 1980s that Ingram was searching for, it is without a doubt a heart-healthy and delicious muffin.

The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook By Elinor Klivans Little Cakes From the Whimsical Bakehouse Cupcakes, Small Cakes, Muffins and Other Mini Treats By Kaye and Liv Hansen Clarkson Potter Publishers / 2008 / $24.95 As a general rule, for me dessert does not need to be cute. The authors of Little Cakes, however, beg to differ. The cunning little creations in this book are bound to draws ooohs and ahhs for their resemblance to cheerful bumblebees or baskets of violets. But these little treats are more than what meets the eye. The recipe for Almond Coffeecakes caught my interest because I had some sour cherries frozen fresh last summer.

Florence Belton of Baltimore was trying to find a recipe for an oatmeal cake. She tried the cake while she was working as a nurse in the 1960s, but can't remember how the cake was made. Sandra Miller of Winchester, Va., saw Belton's request and immediately thought of her recipe for "Lazy Daisy Oatmeal Cake" that was given to her by a friend of her mother's. She says she has been making the cake for at least 30 years and everyone always loves it. This is a simple spice cake that is very moist and yummy.

In Canada, a woman came home to find a bear in her kitchen, eating a bowl of oatmeal. She called the West Vancouver police, but they couldn't persuade the bear to leave. The oatmeal was neither too warm nor too cold. So they shrugged and let it finish eating, and then it ambled away. At least it didn't go upstairs to take a nap. On this side of the border, similar encounters always seem to escalate in the most unfortunate ways. In West Milford, N.J., a bear wandered into a yard and was very sorry it did. It was treed - by a cat named Jack.
