Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

What is with all these desserts?

If that is the question you are asking my blog, I would like you to picture this scenario: you have just moved to an entirely different part of the country and are looking for a job. Except for the place you are staying at has no internet. That does seem to complicate things a little bit.

Fortunately (unfortunately?) I am moving AGAIN to a new place on the 2nd. So I will be internetless for AT LEAST another week. AND I'll have to uproot everything.. again.. and get settled in another apartment.

Which brings us back to the initial question at hand. What is with all these desserts? The moving/looking for job/no internet crisis that is now at the forefront of my life is a reason in itself. And then some.

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

So bring on the cookies!!

As a cookie lover monster, I am all for trying new cookie combinations. Oatmeal raisin? Check. Chocolate chip cookies? Check. Oatmeal Cookies? Check. Mixing them all together? Well, now that is one big fat check mark.
