Can You Believe I Have Not Had a Cookie In A Year? Yeah, I Had To Change That

I have been craving good old chocolate chips cookies and I finally made some that my whole family devoured. I get out of school on June 20th so be prepared for a lot of food experiments once the summer is in full swing.

Pasta with tomato sauce

Always a classic

Sitr Fry

Black bean burgers


This is a Powered by Plants recipe. It amazes me how much these resemble hamburgers. I used some Anne's Smokie Maple BBQ sauce.

Tofu and veggie skewers

Chocolate chip cookies

This recipe is from Eats Like A Bird (thank you so much). These cookies are just the way I like them, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

So moist and yummy!

No cookies for a year? Wish I could say the same thing. (Sugar-holic)

All your food looks amazing. I can't ebelive you're only 16 and can create all this yumminess! You go!

Wow - you have great self control. I want a cookie just looking at yours (lol).

Your burgers are amazing. I just posted about them. They don't have the normal mushiness that bean burgers have.

Chocolate chip cookies are to die for. Yours look wonderful.

Wow, how did you survive without cookies for so long?!?! You broke the streak with the best. They look wonderful. Everything looks great. I will definitely try your burger recipe - they always look amazing.

Wow! What a great blog! I'm glad you stopped by mine so I could come here and read all your yummy foodness! And the photos are just awesome! Way to go!

I'm gonna have my kids look at the stuff you've made and maybe they'll get their lazy little teenage selves inspired as well!

Midwest vegan is right that recipe for black bean burgers looks wonderful.

You have some great recipes, I must visit more regularly.

Those cookies look magnificent! I sometimes have a problem in baking cookies, where they don't spread out at all, but these look just about perfect.
Did you not have cookies for a year by accident or on purpose? Either way, cool!

Kate said...

Wow, thanks for all the comments everyone! It is great to know people are reading my blog and that I am not just blogging to myself. I am so glad that so many people have tried (Midwest Vegan) and want to try my black bean burgers. It makes me so happy that you guys like my recipes. I had not had cookies in a year because when I became vegan a little over a year ago, I spent so much time on cooking and only a little time baking. I was really into brownies and never branched out with my baking. Now, I am going to try to put more baking in my blog because I really do have a sweet tooth (or rather a chocolate tooth), but I just stick with simple sweets like chocolate covered espresso beans (my all time favorite treat!). I am not too much of a bake fan and basically only like desserts with chocolate and peanut butter in it. But wow I am babbling, but thank you so much for all the positive feedback for my blog. It really makes me want to continue blogging.

Those cookies look so delicious. I can't imagine not having cookies for a whole year. I have a huge sweet tooth.

Kati said...

Okay, I know a lot of people have already said this cookies for a whole YEAR??? I can't even fathom such a thing. Even now that I'm eating raw food, I still make cookies. I can't escape the sweet little round form, baked or unbaked!

Anyway, these cookies look excellent, as does everything else. Black bean burgers - yum!
