Healthy Recipe: Roasted Tomato and Paprika Soup

Heidi Swanson’s cookbook Super Natural Cooking has a lot of healthful recipes. I hope you’ll check out this cookbook!

In the meantime, I’ve created a video outlining this recipe. Enjoy!


(Giant) Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I experimented with chocolate chip cookies today and got a good recipe! Note: remember to eat sugar in moderation, so make these cookies and share with friends!

2 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup butter (I use organic)
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
3/4 cup packed organic brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp fine grain sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars.  Add in eggs and vanilla.  Incorporate flour, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Take about 1/8 cup of the dough and roll it into a ball.  (You can also use a medium Pampered Chef scoop for this step.)  Drop onto cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees – 12 minutes for chewy cookies, 15 minutes for crispy cookies.
