This blog... a compilation of my favorite recipes. They have been collected over several years found in various places: the internet, magazines, and cookbooks to name a few. These recipes are meals that I consider to "feed more than your body". These are meals that I hope nurish the heart and soul of those who eat them. I hope that when you have cleaned your plate, you feel like you have taken part in more than just a meal-that you have taken part in something bigger than yourself and food. Whether it is culture, your local place of living, or the life of the plant or those who share this planet, I hope these meals help your family-and mine-to appreciate that we are more than just beings consuming food; we are all connected. And more than that, I hope that these meals help you remember how fortunate you are and that "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.".

Amazing Whole Wheat Cocolate Chip Cookies

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter (if cold cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
8oz chocolate, cut into chunks

Oven at 350. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Sift dry ingredients together. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together until thoroughly blended, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing each one until it's incorporated. Mix in vanilla. Add in flour mixture and blend on low speed until barely combined about 30 seconds. Add chocolate chips. Mix on low speed until chocolate is evenly combined. Scoop mounds of dough (about 3 Tbs each) onto the cookie sheet, 3 inches apart about 6 to a sheet. Bake cookies for 16-20 minutes until evenly darker brown.
