About a week and a half ago, I met up with one of my best friends to have lunch at a new taco joint called "El Barrio" in downtown Birmingham.
Sidenote: GO to El Barrio. It's f'n amazing. Seriously. Get the tacos al carbon, al pastor and camarones. You won't regret it.
Anyway...afterwards, we stopped by Urban Standard for coffee and dessert. Not being a big coffee drinker, I opted for the hot chocolate. Scanning the dessert offerings, I noticed that they had BIG chewy oatmeal cookies. So I got one. Studded with milk chocolate chips instead of raisins, and lightly spiced with cinnamon, it was PERFECT.
So, what else to do than make them myself?
