Oatmeal Fudge Cookie Bars

This week has been a rather busy and frustrating one as plans have been changing, unexpected things (read: expenses & fees!) have been popping up, and new responsibilities have been delegated. You probably know exactly what I'm talking about - these kinds of days/weeks happen to all of us. Fortunately, there are constants in our lives. The sun will rise in the east, Taylor Swift will continue to sing about ex-boyfriends, and this cookie bar recipe will never disappoint. So if you've been let down at all in the last little while, or even if you're having the best day ever, embrace these cookie bars with arms wide open and let them be a constant in your life.
