One of our favorite family recipes is oatmeal raisin cookies.
Years ago, when my children were young, I loved to bake.
When I decided to pursue writing professionally, I found
myself with less time for baking and cooking.
My husband, in good nature mind you, said to me one day,
“I guess I better start learning how to cook so we don’t starve
to death”. I laughed as he jokingly frowned. He did learn how
to cook and does it without complaint. I don’t know what I would
have done if he hadn’t shown me the support he has given
me through my writing journey. I always knew he was there to
take care of the kids and household, while I fervently worked on
learning the craft of writing.
Below is our oatmeal raisin cookie recipe...if you get the urge to bake.

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
