Moelleux au Chocolat…oh Yeah

Can anyone really sleep on airplanes? If you can, please tell me your secret (but if it’s nyquil I want none of it; that’s just been descension into further airplane purgatory with every swig). My present plan-of-attack is to watch four movies and hope to Jesus there is some earth beneath those wheels soon after. I must admit, however, the proceeding hours of looking and acting much like an alert meerkat are not worth the aerial ones spent with Jason Segel and Emily Blunt (oh my gosh, though, were they FUNNY).

There have been highs and lows of this vegan endeavor (an example of the latter being water and cereal…I ate every bite). But the pinnacle would undoubtedly be these Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. That’s right, those words are capitalized. In fact, it’s Dr. Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Ph.D. on dates.

Gets that milk every time.

I love finding things. Lost keys, old photos, new recipes, strange music, weird people, intriguing books; there is enormous satisfaction in discovery. And I believe the very best ones are stumbled upon accidentally.

Take The Tale of Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups…
