These are some of my fav. Chocolate chip cookies. I love them. Even though they say "Cholesterol Free" dont let that fool ya! They are yummmmmyyy!


2 1\2 cups all-purpose flour
1\2 teaspoon baking soda
1\4 teasppon salt
1\4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1\2 cup granulated sugar
1\2 cup margarine
3 large egg WHITES
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)

Yields: About 3 1\2 dozen


1) Prehead Oven to 300F

2) In medium bowl, combine flour, soda, and salt. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside...

3) In a large bowl, blend sugars with an electric mixer. Add margarine and mix to form a grainy paste.

4) In small bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy. Add egg whites, honey, and vanilla to sugar mixture, and beat until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

5) Add to the flour mixture and chocolate chips, and blend on low speed just until combined. Do not overmix!

6) Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 1 1\2 inches apart. bake for 15 to 18 minutes until lightly browned. Immediately transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool, flat surface.

(I cook my cookies on a pampered chef cookie sheet - they turn out nicer to me)

ENJOY, add a glass of milk for a sweet treat.. and CHOLESTEROL-FREE haha

Seasoned Greenbeans

*click image for larger view*

I love well seasoned green beans. I enjoy both southern style ones and asian style beans. I prefer my greenbeans with some crunch to them. Travis prefers them softer... so I try to cook them inbetween :-)

One way I season them though is to add "Tastefully Simples Seasoning Salt" (google it if your interested in purchasing it). I then add a dash of kikomon soy sauce. Not sure on the spelling of that brand :-)

It adds a very nice flavor!

I dont really have exact amts. to give you. I just throw it together...
Add however much of the season salt as you want and soy sauce. All depends on your taste :-)
