Everyone has their own coping mechanism to deal with stress.  Me?  I bake.  A lot.  There’s something about being in the kitchen that just melts away the stress.  As is expected for my last semester of grad school, things are a bit stressful… so, today I decided to take a much needed break from my MNT homework and make my absolute favorite cookies of all time – oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!  Growing up, Suzanne and I loved oatmeal cookies, but only after each and every raisin was picked out of the cookies.  This recipe is a perfect combination of a hearty oatmeal cookie with the gooey chocolate of a traditional chocolate chip cookie.  The sugar has been reduced from the traditional recipe but without any loss of flavor and they’ll more than satisfy your sweet tooth.  Enjoy!
