Easy Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

I nicknamed these "Trev" cookies because my husband Trevor likes them so much. Before that they were "Marsha" cookies, named for a friend who gave me the recipe. It's an easy recipe because you don't have to cream butter or shortening; you just dump and stir ingredients in a big bowl. --Jan Smith
