why did i ever let you go mamma mia, now i really know

Yes I saw Mamma Mia tonight in theatres..and it was awesome! I definitely recommend anyone to go see it! I have yet to see it on broadway, but the movie version was really really good. And the whole movie I knew the main girl looked familiar..but I realized who she was at the end! The really dumb, ditzy girl from Mean Girls. haha I must say, it was really weird/refreshing to see her play the character in Mamma Mia, such a different role from her old one!..and much better!

Soo I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies again yesterday but I wanted to try a different recipe..even though the other one I made a couple weeks ago came out really good (just wanted to test the waters, i suppose) So I made a recipe I found on a website called Thin Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies. All excited and such, I made them. And yes, they came out really awesome! So then I compared the recipe with the previous cookie recipe I made..and yeah basically the exact same recipe. haha I was so bummed! Butttt....this one is a bit easier and just as good! Instead of 2 egg replacers that were in the other recipe, this one was just 2 T of applesauce..which made it a bit easier (no blending of flax seeds and such..) So that was a relief..and from now on I'll use the applesauce. :)

And what's better than a perfect chocolate chip cookie?

Mint fudge ice cream in the middle OF COURSE!
it was quite scrumptious!

I promise that I don't just make desserts..although thats how it seems lately! it is my favorite to make though.. haha next post will be real food. :)

Oh my gosh, I just realized I haven't had an ice cream sandwich since I became vegan!! Your sandwiches are inspiring me to go get some ice cream =)

I didn't think there was anything better than a choc. chip cookie... until I saw your idea for a choc chip cookie with ICE CREAM in the middle!

I've always thought the music from Mamma Mia sounded corny, but I admit I have been curious about the movie. It's good to know that it's a winner! Those cookies look great -- especially with the ice cream in the middle! Have you tried Dreena Burton's homestyle chocolate chip cookie recipe? I'm curious to know how the recipe you made compares, because I've seen it on the web before but Dreena's is my fave so far!

Thanks for the nice comment too, and of course I don't mind that you added me! Yaaay!
