Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
I am really glad I am back to do the things I love most, BAKING! A new househelp arrived couple of few weeks ago and took a big part of household chores from me. Days are good because I no longer catching up on laundry, housework and overlooking my children and Royce. I had more time to spend with the kids after work and extra time for cooking and writing. Len has shown her interest with baking when I made Choco Oatmeal with Peanut Butter Squares a week ago. So, I taught her with the basics of baking, and pretending I am a pro. Hahaha. As a beginner in baking, cookies are easy to prepare and to bake. CHOCOLATE OATMEAL COOKIE is one of the recipes my mom taught me since I waskid. It is very simple yet may be considered an extraordinary accomplishment for a starter like Len.
