Cookies and Crookies

I was in a major mood for some cookies the other night. I searched and searched for a recipe that sounded suitable for my craving, and that I had all the ingredients for. Finally, I came across these gems
Oreo cookie-cookies. That's right, a cookie within a cookie. Plus some chocolate chips for good measure. Holy granoly, these were rockin.

Then, tonight I went shopping and finally got some peanut butter. What better to go with peanut butter (besides apples, of course) than graham crackers? I decided to try Isa's recipe, which seemed simple enough. Silly me, I tried to half it, but forgot halfway through and ended up adding too much rice milk. So, I threw in a few handfuls of flour for good measure. I also added a bit too much molasses. They came out a little more like crisp cookies, so I'm calling them molasses graham crookies.

Yum, just how I like it.
I'm glad these were fairly healthy, because somehow I ended up with only half a pan before they were even completely cooled.

And, just to prove I eat more than cookies.. dinner last night. Mustard crusted tofu, lemon-herb roasted cauliflower and chickpeas, and quinoa with green onions.
Mustard tofu frying up. I just mixed mustard, a little horseradish, and nooch and dipped the tofu in, then put it in the skillet to fry.
My favorite part was the roasted cauliflower. I mixed lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, herbs, and olive oil, tossed the cauli and chickpeas, and some carrots for good measure, then roasted in the toaster over for about 30 minutes. Yum yum!

I'm making a big dinner feast for my family and friends tomorrow night, one of which is a dedicated omnivore, another which is looking into trying vegetarianism. It should be an interesting night. Pictures soon to come.

Roasted cauliflower and chickpeas are made for each other. I've never roasted chickpeas before, but now I will never stop!
