Oatmeal cookies: comfort food, comfort thought

 I love to have cookie on hand actually I love to eat something I can chew ^^.
Oat meal cookie is the best choice for me as I love the smell and texture of it. Plus this cookie has pecan nuts and dried cherries, and I love both of them too. I still in lazy mode (don't know how long it will take, hehe), there are many things I want to do but the hardest point is to start. The fact is I got a lot of inspiration from my vacation but I still didn't finish categorise them. I tried to crate some of the sweet that I tasted while traveling but the result is not as good as I want and it irritated me. Well I know that it's not easy, but I still want to be able to make something from my imagination, haha. So, as the result I needed some delicious and comfort sweet to get me through this feeling.
Turning to this comfort food makes me happy, as it brings good memory to me. Makes me remember why I love baking, I started baking because I love to eat and my family love to eat that's the real reason ^^. 
We are always be like that, we started with some passion, when time passed, we run to new goal and forgot why we did it in the first place. All I want to tell you is don't forget why you want to bake, try to remember the smile on your family member face when they enjoyed your first homemade cookies, their laughter and your own happiness. With this thought in your heart You know why you want to bake more and more.
