    here is a maybe stupid question, what is a serving size? a 1/2 cup, 1/4cup? I see it says serves 6 but I like knowing the serving size. - 10/8/09

    1 tbsp of cinnamon was way too much for my family. Next time I will use less-other than that it was great! I added chopped pecans for a little crunch at the table. - 9/10/07

    I made it last night because I knew today would be busy. The recipe turned out a little soupier than I expected, but was still delicious. Next time, I'll just tweak it a bit to better suite my family, although I still love it the way it was. - 9/9/07

    It took me a few bites to get used to the texture of this dish, but after that, I just gobbled it up. This is a very easy recipe, and it was a nice change to my normal breakfast routine. - 3/24/07

    It smelled wonderful in the morning, but it was a little too acidic for me. I also didn't feel it was very much of a serving unless doubled. - 9/14/07

    At first I wasn't sure I liked it and then I kept wanting more and more. :) I added one packet of splenda and about a half a cup of milk to a double portion for breakfast today. Very good! Just be careful not to overcook. MIne almost burned! - 3/18/07

    I don't know if I cooked this for too long, but overnight on low left the oatmeal looking like brown slime, as someone also mentioned. May try again using the keep warm option on my slow cooker? - 11/8/10

    I doubled it as I have a large slow cooker but same proportions. Perfect amount of cinnamon. Modifications - grape juice instead of orange, and dried cherries instead of cranberries.I 'm set for breakfasts for the week. It is filling and I loved how the apples were still a tiny bit crunchy. - 9/11/10

    I did not have cranberries, so I used a trail mix dried fruit & nut mix. Apple juice with the juice of one clementine. Half the water & apple pie seasoning. Half the recipe served 2. I was very good! - 12/22/09

    This is my new favourite!! I didn't have orange juice handy, so instead I used 5-Alive. Very refreshing breakfast! I'm making it again tonight! - 3/13/07

  • I am not a big oatmeal for breakfast fan. I would like to be. I think maybe next time I will try no O.J. I like oatmeal once in a blue moon filled with brown sugar and low fat evaporated milk. - 10/19/13

  • The serving size seems a bit small and the ratio of liquid to rolled oats a bit high. Adjust according to your taste, and recalculate the calories on the recipes section of sparkpeople.com. - 3/14/13

  • Tasty...A tip for any hot cereal crockpot recipe that I use and it saves on the clean up and the risk of a "soupy" consistency...Put 3 cups of water in a large crockpot, mix your cereal in a casserole dish an place the casserole dish in the crockpot to cook. It adds moisture to the cereal.

    i was really disappointed. it smelled terrific but looks like lumpy brown slime. after tasting it, i think there may be too much water and/or orange juice. also, i don't think i could get 6 servings out of this. - 10/17/07

    I was not fond of it. My kid, husband and the 2 kids I watch were also not fond of it. I love oatmeal and cranberries, so I thought this would be great. It was a little soupy and acidic. - 10/3/07
