But my most favorite memory was her cooking. Oh boy did I love to eat her food! She made the best oatmeal. It was not fancy and did not require many ingredients, but it is a comfort food I still make to this day.

While she used old fashioned oats, I have come to love the ease of quick 1-minute oats. The 1-minute oats are great to use when making my No Bake Cookies too.
