The people of the Capital District embrace winter fun with an ardor that can flummox those of us who are less accustomed to frolicking outside in arctic climes. Local frost fanatics are already buzzing about Saratoga’s forthcoming Chowderfest, where tens of thousands hit the frigid February streets to sip on soup samples, and the Lake George Winter Carnival, which features alarming events like ice diving and flag football, outside ... in February.

But even the biggest snowshoeing, ice-fishing enthusiasts often find themselves seeking the warm embrace of comfort food, most frequently in the form of a large bowl of something artery clogging. Weather wusses? We retreat to culinary igloos constructed of short rib bricks slathered in mac ’n’ cheese sauce.

Not every serving of ice-melting comfort has to come with a Lipitor chaser though. Our old friend oatmeal, humble, quiet and unassuming as she may be, is also as heart-healthy, fiber-rich and sustaining as she is a warm, soothing bastion from cold.

And there’s no reason to just stop at stir-ins like butter, cinnamon and honey. Edible tapped the Triangle Diner’s owner Lora Diggins and the Shop’s head chef Rich Matthews for inspiration and creative recipes that make oatmeal anything but ordinary.
