so i whipped the boy up some chocolate chip cookies this morning. i had found a recipe in a cooking light magazine awhile back and decided to give it a try. i also found it on the net, you can view it here. it is quite a bit lower in calories and fat than you typical chocolate chip cookie recipe without skimping too much on the taste. it works. it still has your basic cookie ingredients with a few differences, such as using only the egg white. the dough came together quick and smelled fragrant of vanilla, good vanilla from beanilla. people let me sidetrack for a second. please, if you bake, use real vanilla and not the imitation garbage. i promise you the investment will pay off. there is a huge difference between the two. okay, back to the cookies, they spread very little while baking, so they come out thick and chewy. i am not a real fan of chocolate chip cookies(i like my chocolate unadulterated), but i ate one. it really is good. i am thinking maybe another later with a cup of coffee.
now, if travis can stop tormenting the dog long enough, maybe he too can have one. enjoy.
