For the past week I've been shoving my face with my grandmother's famous oatmeal cookies, I don't know what it is about the crunchy, yet melt in your mouth texture paired with heavy oats and nuts topped off with delicious chocolate chips but it just does it for me. So much so that the 3+ dozen she made before we came is down to single digits...Oops. Of course this kind of addiction needs to be shared, am I right? Plus it's super quick, and easy.
