There is a website called 43 Things where you can keep track of your goals in life. I got bored one day and just kept thinking of random things to add. I ended up with more than 43 goals, so I moved it to Lists of Bests (which is no longer active). It’s the same account as 43 things except you can add as many things as you want. They don’t have to be goals; they can be book lists, movie lists, places to see, etc. Probably 25% of my goals are food related, if not more. One of the goals I have is “create 10 recipes I’ve saved in online recipe boxes.” I have an obession of creating an account, saving countless recipes, and never make any of them. Now I’m forcing myself to use these online accounts, even if I have to tackle 10 recipes at a time (in case you’re wondering why I don’t use online accounts as often as I save recipes, please note my cookbook count is at 91 books. I bought two more over the weekend. Would’ve been more if the one flea market table wasn’t selling them for $1 ^_^;;).
As I was choosing a recipe, I decided I wanted to use my mint chocolate chips that have been sitting in the drawer since December. I wanted chocolate chip cookies but didn’t want to make something so easy. I came across a chocolate chip pie recipe. Now, I thought this was going to be a giant chocolate chip cookie but in a pie plate. Turns out it’s more of a cake than a pie. Still delicious nonetheless and I would definitely make this in the future.
Chocolate Chip Cookie
Although the recipe calls for swirled chocolate chips, you can use semisweet ones. Recipe is posted here.
What is your favorite recipe for using chocolate chips?
I still enjoy the classic chocolate chip cookies.
