I never thought I'd ever think this, let alone say it: I am sick of sweets. There. I'm taking a break from the baking cabinet tonight, and cooking in general. I made a small trip to Whole Foods ($83. One bag.), and picked up a bag each of cat food and kitten food, and I am effing tired.

I did, however; pick up a bag of Whole Foods's 365 Everyday Value Vegan Chocolate Chips. I've been buying their regular old semisweet ones forever. The difference? About 40 cents and the regular ones were made in a facility that may have processed eggs and dairy. I usually don't bat an eye at the "may have" disclaimer. I mean, a prairie dog "may have" been playing around near the wheat thresher, so should I stop buying flour?

And how sick am I for even saying that?

Anyway. I need to know two things. What chocolate chips do you normally buy? Also, what's your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? Like, what book is it in? Maybe I'll make some tomorrow night. Right now, I'm going to watch Sleeper Cell (mmm...Michael Ealy) and fight off diabetes for one night.

You're gonna hate me. I have never made Cookies and I don't buy Chocolate Chips!
To answer the first question - I have absolutely no freaking idea. I am phoning my therapist to get my head examined as I type.
And to answer the second question - because I can't buy vegan ones here and it's all a big conspiracy.

I buy those same chocolate chips! My favorite chocolate chip recipe changes from time to time, right now we're all about Happy Herbibore's fat free chocolate chip cookies. Not because we're on a fat free diet (we're not) but they just taste so damn good!

we love the "enjoy life" semi-sweet chocolate chips. they're allergy free and made in a plant that doesn't process animal ingredients, which is pretty sweet! my favorite chocolate chip recipe is this one - it's amaaaaazing! mmmmmmmm!

I've tried quite a few different chocolate chip cookie recipes and by far my favorite is in the Joy of Vegan Baking. My partner likes them so much that if I ask him what he'd like me to bake, he'll say them before I even get the question out of my mouth. Chips I buy are Ghiradelli (sp?) and Organics Semi-Sweet.
