There is nothing fancy here.  It's just that I keep my oats in a different container than they come in and I can never remember the proportions, thus it is here for my benefit.  I will add that if you use old fashioned oats, you will have to cook it a bit longer.  Another trick is that if you like a cereal with some "tooth", follow these instructions.  If you like a smoother texture, add the cereal to the cold water.  If you like a richer cereal, try adding a mix of wheatena and/or cream of rice and/or cream of wheat cutting back on the Oats of course.  I hardly ever make it "straight".
