Y’all know my husband?

The man who eats all my food?

The one who hasn’t cooked anything other than french toast, bacon, and eggs in the past 10 years?

The one who thought whipped cream came from egg whites and not, you know, cream…that had been whipped?

The man who refuses to try anything that might have a hint of an onion in it, probably just on principle or to annoy me or because he’s just stubborn and not at all because he dislikes onions. I mean, he probably can’t even remember what onions taste like, it’s been so long since he’s eaten one.

Anyway. That man.

He knows his cookies. He is a true cookie connoisseur. Especially when it comes to homemade peanut butter cookies.

Sure, he is often unable to find the ranch dressing or jelly in our refrigerator (it’s in the same spot every time, you guys!), but he knows his way around the cookie jar.
