When I first started dating my husband, he swore up and down he didn’t like sweets. I, being the loving girlfriend, would always offer him a cookie or peice of dessert. His answer was always the same, “I don’t eat sweets.” Well, my how things have changed for Mr. Ward. These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are his favorite, and by his favorite I mean he eats all of them until there are no more. Sounds strange for the man that does not like sweets. Apparently, his sweet tooth has sweetened, I guess cause I’m just so damn sweet.
