Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Deserve A Chance To Shine

They're more than just chocolate chip cookie knockoffs.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Deserve A Chance To Shine

From goldfish one week to oatmeal raisin cookies this week, I seem to have more unpopular food opinions than I thought! Even still, these foods deserve a chance to be loved, and this week’s pick — oatmeal raisin cookies — definitely deserves some time to shine.

Oatmeal raisin cookies are definitely some of the best cookies out there. They have that delicious cinnamon taste that perfectly hits the spot when you need something sweet but not too sweet like chocolate. The raisins also go together quite nicely with the oatmeal. All of this results in cookies that are suited for anything and anyone really.

Now about the “controversy” over these cookies. I’ll address the chocolate chip mix-up since I know there are people who are bitter that they once ate an oatmeal raisin cookie but expected it to be a chocolate chip cookie. You’re right, the two cookies are very similar. They have similar looks. I can easily see how you could confuse one for the other and end up very disappointed. I openly concede that point.

However, that does not mean that oatmeal raisin cookies deserve all of the hate! When was the last time you oatmeal raisin haters actually ate an oatmeal raisin cookie? Yeah, you should try one and then get back to me.

Basically, all I’m saying is that oatmeal raisin cookies should not be the sad, leftover cookies at functions and gatherings. They should be scooped up along with the rest of the cookies because they are amazing and delicious and people have unnecessary hatred towards these poor cookies that never did anything wrong.

They deserve a chance to shine and a chance for people to claim them as their favorite cookies. Ignore all of the hate surrounding these poor cookies that can’t choose what they look like and if they look like another cookie. Who knows, maybe you’ll find that oatmeal raisin cookies are actually your favorite cookie after all.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
