Soft Oatmeal Cookies

I’m so sorry I disappeared on you all. Life got really busy, but good news, I have a new kitchen, in a new house, in a new town! Very long story short – the universe smiled upon us in a year that many have defined as a dumpster fire – my husband, our youngest son, and myself moved to a beautiful home in the country. The kitchen in this place is enough to give even the most die hard anti-cooking person inspiration!

The very first thing I cooked, from scratch, was a batch of oatmeal cookies. I usually add raisins, but I substituted dried cranberries for raisins and added some dark chocolate chips as well. Baking cookies helped the new place feel like home.
