choc oatmeal cookies

5.06.2010

Chocolate chip cookies reminds me of my childhood. I have to admit that my mom never made homemade chocolate chip cookies for us but she did buy a package of Chips Ahoy every week. And at the time I didn't know the difference.

And to celebrate my best friend from childhood's milestone birthday, I've made some chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I hope they bring back memories of us growing up together as it does for me. Happy Birthday, Jina!
