Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

11 May

With two jobs and school, my much loved time in the kitchen has been severely interrupted.  But next week I’m down to only one of the two jobs, which means I’m officially back on the blogging train.  All aboard!

Who doesn’t love a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie??
