Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One
- 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 Tbsp unrefined granulated sugar, such as evaporated cane juice
- 1/2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp beaten egg, preferably organic (cover & chill remaining beaten egg for tomorrow’s cookie cup… you will be making another one!)
- tiny splash pure vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 Tbsp whole wheat pastry flour (can substitute with 3:1 of cake flour and all purpose flour)
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- tiny pinch salt
- heaping 1 Tbsp grain-sweetened chocolate chips, such as Sunspire
In a small ramekin or microwavable cup, combine softened butter and both sugars; stir well with a spoon. Stir in beaten egg and vanilla extract. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Microwave on high for 35-40 seconds. Let cookie rest at room temperature for about 10 seconds before devouring.

I just realized how much I depend on my dashboard to get me in the mood to workout when I just really need to suck it up and go do it! Restarting Insanity month 2 on Monday because I want to be able to say I finished it, and while I was still fat, too. ;>
Such a tiny thing, registering, voting. Did you ever get even one tiny thing from PBS? Did you or your kids grow up with Sesame Street? Make the time, take the time. Please.
I Have a Dream
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’”
On August 28th, 1963 — 49 years ago today — Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a 17-minute public speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial looking out on the Washington Monument to 200,000 civil rights supporters where he called for racial equality and an end to discrimination.
This historical event, now known as “I Have a Dream Speech,” has been commemorated with an inscription on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial from which King delivered his speech. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was opened to the public just last year in Washington, D.C. and is within the Lincoln Memorial’s sightline.
