I love to cook. I love browsing through cookbooks and cooking websites, selecting the right ingredients at the store, and bringing the recipe to life in my kitchen. I find the whole process extremely therapeutic. The last couple of months, though, I’ve lost my inspiration.
Even though I’ve always been a healthy eater, the diabetes diagnosis and the carb counting that came with it has made me nervous about I can and should eat. Instead of trying new recipes, I’ve been playing it safe (and boring), baking chicken, roasting vegetables and throwing together simple salads.
That’s why trying a new recipe today was so satisfying. I was in desperate need of something sweet and decided try the Brownie Cookie recipe from Diabetic Living. The cookies turned out absolutely delicious, and even though it was a simple recipe, it inspired me to start experimenting in the kitchen again.
