Tomato Garbanzo Salad

After yet ANOTHER cookie fail, I’ve decided to leave it to the experts.

The bakers. The people who can actually whip up a recipe and not have it oozing over the sides of the pan. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Either I’m epically dense or have an unbelievable perseverance that I need to squash immediately. This is clearly a sign from the universe that I should be a healthy dietitian-to-be and not bake cookies.

Instead, I have this fabulously fresh bean and vegetable salad for you. This is what I do best. Vegetables.
PS: The cookie did turn out okay. Mashed together but tasty. However, even though sugar + molasses = brown sugar, sugar + honey = liquid cookies.
