White Chocolate Lavender Cookies & My Use of Profanity

Very moist and will not disappoint: White Chocolate Lavender Cookies by ibakeheshoots.com

Ok. So, here it is…my use of profanity.

I’m not going to lie to you. I like profanity. I like to use it and I have zero problems when others do. It doesn’t offend me in any way whatsoever. Of course, there are some people who don’t feel the same way.

That’s cool.

If you don’t care for profanity, I won’t judge you. It’s not my job to criticize people for the things they say or do.

For example…

If you think ‘amazeballs,’ is the coolest word on the planet…sure, that sounds great. Not a problem.

If you wanna rock black dress socks with your shorts in the summertime…hey, man, that’s your business. More power to ya, I say.

If you think Justin Bieber is a musical genius….fine by me. Put the Biebs on 10 and sing to your heart’s content.

If you call yourself a vegetarian and you still eat chicken enchiladas…ok, wait.

The point is we are who we are. If you’re happy with yourself, who cares what the next guy thinks. Life is short. Enjoy yourself. That’s what I’m gonna do, with a big plate of white chocolate lavender cookies, no less.

Ok, so it looks like I’ve been on a white chocolate kick, as of late. If you’re on one too, check out these white chocolate heart bars; they’re super-moist and yummy. And I don’t use the term ‘yummy’ willy-nilly…know what I’m sayin’?

White chocolate and lavender is a different way to enjoy chocolate chips cookies. Yeah, man. They don’t all have to be filled with the sweet taste of semi sweet chocolate. Have fun with it. Change it up! And if people don’t like it, let f-bombs fly with a smile on your face.

    What a terrific post! I spend a few moments on studying, and I am
    so excited by the information that I obtained.

    It’s actually tough to find something valuable on that
    subject. But this author appears to be a genuine professional
    since there is a special personality in his writings. I’m likely to sign up for
    his new books, simply not to skip anything. This informative article worths its reading.
