Oatmeal Bars

My Mother-in-law and I have always been close.  Our relationship is very unique to most of the movies you see today.  She is not my
Monster-in-law or any of those other titles.  Instead, I look up to her and we share a bond that not many woman have with their mother-in-law.  One thing we have always shared is our love for food and making food.  When John and I met, 10 years ago, his Mom would make these Oatmeal bars for him.  To this day, these are John’s favorite cookie. They are the perfect mix of chewy and sweet.
