Whole Wheat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

My original intentions were to make these cookies entirely of whole wheat flour, however, my husband felt that this was an abomination. We compromised, as all good couples do, and opted for a half-half flour mix, which was utterly delicious! Personally, I think these cookies would be delectable made entirely of whole wheat flour as well.

These cookies are chunky, yet chewy and moist! A perfect combination! I used Ghiradelli chocolate chips which taste so much more decadent than other brands. Considering that we are using whole wheat flour, I highly recommend splurging on high quality chocolate chips!

And now for a song. I remember so distinctly when I first heard "Elephant Gun," by Beirut, five years ago. I had never heard anything like it and was so moved by it. The song combined Eastern Eurpoean music, with Balkan folk, and pop. When I later found out that Zach Condon recorded it entirely himself, in his bedroom, as a mere teen, I think I fell in love with him for a brief moment.

Until next time, cheers and happy eating!

100 % of witty tidbits. Sitting there on your counter, it rarely appears to be capable of these wonders, but the first timers and the seasoned cooks alike will take pleasure in including that standard flavor to their favored dishes. Material markers have even been made use of and can be beneficial to touch-up the zones on the footwear wherever the shade did not acquire (the seams primarily).

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
