Vegetable Crackers

Sunday is often times cooking day for me. Not sure why, other than it's an easy going day from the start, being Sunday, and a leisure pace naturally sets in as soon as I get up.
It's also a good time to take a break from all the projects I continually work on the rest of the week.

Today was definitively a cooking day! I made crackers (see below), home-sprouted wheat berry banana cookies and have hummus, celery, carrots, and big green salad ready to go with the crackers for dinner tonight. I love Sundays like this!

Earlier, feeling a bit like something new to play with in the kitchen, I reached for Brendan Brazier's The Thrive Diet for a fun as yet un-tried recipe, and all it took was opening the book and there they were, two words: vegetable crackers. Yep, really, that's all it took. You might wonder what's all the excitement about, but for me -and most people in my household- veggie crackers always sound wonderful.

Little Chocolate Cups

This made a tremendous Valentine's surprise, though you do not need a reason to make them. While savoring, we had fun talking about all the different kinds of filling this would work with, and came up with great ideas. More to come! ;P

I found this recipe on the Making Food And Other Stuff blog -the pictures alone are incredible. Just plug in chocolate in the search box and you should find it.

My results may have a bit of a rough draft look to them (he, he), giving me yet another excuse to try it again. Looks did not affect taste one bit though, let me tell you. :D

I'm going to do 2 things:
1. give you the original recipe
2. tell you what I actually did (remember, I don't follow directions very well... sigh...)

Chocolate Cookies

The truth is, I don't know a whole lot of cookie recipes. In fact, I don't know any... really. I've never been a  cookie type person for one, and not liking sweets all that much (with the exception of dark chocolate off course), I never had the inclination to make cookies per-se -and frankly, I don't care to ingest all that wheat flour and sugar to start with either.
