Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies
I can’t believe it’s already Friday! This week seemed to just fly by. The last two days have mostly been spent being really annoyed with our apartment complex. Oi, such a headache. We have been putting in a number of requests for them to come fix up some things in our master bathroom since JANUARY! Well, they finally sent someone yesterday and boy oh boy, was I in for a surprise when I came home yesterday! They installed a new shower surround and it was completely wrong. It was uneven, not sealed properly, crooked, and just downright sloppy. What was really funny is that my darling husband was home while they were working! I asked him if he thought it looked weird to which he replied, “well, I thought it looked a little strange, but I didn’t notice the things you did.” Oh men… Luckily, I spoke with the management and they sent someone new this morning and fixed the surround. I just can’t wait until I finish grad school, get a real job wherever we are going to end up so we can finally buy a house and not have to deal with apartment crap ever again!
I made these cookies last week as an experiment in trying to cut some of the fat in my usual chocolate chip cookie recipe. For this recipe, I cut the butter in half and used an egg white instead of the whole egg. I thought these came out pretty good and I couldn’t really tell the difference between them and my other recipe!
In other news, I was recently tagged by Erin over at Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts to play a fun game for great bloggers to get to know each other better! Here are the questions:
Describe yourself in 7 words
Silly, loyal, giving, hard-working, overly sensitive, neat freak, perfectionist
What Keeps You Up at Night
Restless leg syndrome (yes, I really have it), worrying about my dissertation, and thinking about new recipes!
Who Would You Like To Be?
I just want to be the healthiest, happiest, and successful version of me!
What Scares You?
Space (it really overwhelms me), snakes, and roaches (eeeep!)
What are the Best and Worst Things about Blogging?
The best thing about blogging for me has been meeting and getting to know so many wonderful other bloggers. Blogging has also pushed me to try lots of new recipes and cooking techniques that I have may have never tried otherwise! Worst thing would definitely be the pressure to post enough recipes each week and of course, taking good photos. Ugh.
What is the Last Website you Looked At?
If you Could Change Something About Yourself What Would It Be?
I sometimes get really stressed out about things that I shouldn’t get so stressed out about.
Slankets, Yes or No?
Ok, I have to admit I wasn’t quite sure what this was. I mean, I have heard of Snuggies and I guess they are the same thing so my answer to this is No – although, my old roommate gave me a bubblegum pink Snuggie for X-mas last year as a joke. I have yet to wear it though (Sorry, Kara! :P).
Tell Us Something About the Person Who Tagged You
Erin is super sweet and makes some really delicious treats! She recently moved to Colorado and is learning the ins and outs of baking at high altitudes! Her blog has so many great recipes for every meal!
I’m passing this on to 5 fellow bloggers.. hopefully you haven’t been tagged before so you can play along!
Oh, and I also want to thank Veronica over at My Catholic Kitchen for passing the Leibster award to me! I recently received it and passed it to others so I’m not going to pass it again right now, but thank you so much for passing it to me, Veronica! :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
