gluten free and gluten-full!!
y'all like cookies?
me too.
i made some for a charity event last week.
(yeah, i know, where've i been?)
i mean, some people like chocolate chips.
other people are bad people.
some other other folks get down with white chocolate chips....
i'm not here to judge anybody, neighbors-
i'm here to talk about feelings and hook you up the recipes-
check the teleport:

you know those look good, right?
i'm psyched on 'em, for sure-
the gluten-free jauns are the chocolate chippers.
the regular flour magic ones are chocolate white chocolate chip-
it's a yin-yang twinship of terrific treats,
and i SO doo-do that freaky sh!t, like the whisper song...
here'show to have some for yourself:
preheat your oven to 375℉.
in a pair of medium-sized metal mixin' bowls, you gotta get your sh!t together, buddy.
1 stick (8T) vegan butter;
1 cup raw organic sugar;
2 tsp vanilla;
1/2 tsp salt;
1 tsp xantham gum;
cream that up,
and add:
3 T tapioca starch;
1/2 cup bob's baking flour blend;
2/3 cup bob's 1:1 gf rice-based flour;
1/4 cup chick pea flour;
1 1/2 cups mama's almond flour blend;
2 tsp baking powder;
1 tsp baking soda;
1/4 cup non-dairy milk;
2/3 pkg vegan mini chocolate chips-
that's a lotta flours, but it's worth it-
you'd never know they weren't traditional cookies,
and that's the whole point, anyway, right?
2" semi-flattened balls of dough, yo. that's what you wanna set up on some baking trays.
bake 'em for 13 minutes,
and be excited. or get excited. i'm sayin'-
if you know what's good, and you know what's good for you, you'll be thrilled with these.
real talk.
and then there's MORE.
too much is the right amount.
and MORE cookies is never a bad thing, buddy.
1 stick (8T) vegan butts;
1/2 tsp salt;
1 cup light brown sugar;
2 tsp vanilla;
1/3 cup cocoa;
creamed and crushed and mooshed together,
stirred up with 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce-
and activated with:
2 tsp baking powder;
1 tsp baking soda;
2 cups a.p. flour;
3/4 cup oat flour;
1 cup king david vegan white chocolate chips.....
white chocolate reversies, duders.
how do they taste?
rich and chocolaty.
but then those smooth cocoa buttery chips do their thing,
and you realize you're living in the modern world, and it is a good world to be in.
thanks cookies, for optimizing my outlook all week.
i did 15 charity tattoos,
to raise funds for an former friend.
he's not dead or nothin'-
well, he's almost dead to me, but that's another story.
a friend in need means you gotta do the right thing.
rules is rules.
even if it's an outstanding balance that needs collecting,
you strap in, and you get to work.
that's the thing, man......i pay my debts.
i do.
and that's the measure of my mettle, man.
i owed him one. that's true.
for all the years before he stone-cold dissed y'boi like a ice-hearted bummer,
he was my close friend, and we confided in each other-
that counts for something, and i counted it up, and stepped up to the studio
with the express intent of doing something good.
i'm no hero, by any means-
but i crushed fifteen tattzapps in a row, 
black and grey,
with nothing but outline machines set up all damned day-
i'm made to tattoo in a street shop.
i hate that about myself, but i'm built to mine tatts like a machine, for hours on end.
sure, i've got skills on top of skills to do all the styles,
and a heck of a personal style, to boot-
that's twenty years' worth of experience talking, not arrogance, i assure you-
but, on even footing, in a straight street shop, i can still sit down and WORK.
...and i was still home for dinner, duders.
the interesting thing about the day?
all three studios in the valley all combined forces and generated revenue
for the family of the injured fella TOGETHER.
all the olden days lameness of rivalry, hard feelings, and competition are OVER.
everybody works together, everybody stays cool, and everybody gets a slice of the pie.
that's the real story behind the scenes.
it's all really happening,
and it's unfolding in new directions none of us probably would've predicted;
never quiet, never soft.....
