I’m all for healthier versions of classics but a healthy chocolate chip cookie just doesn’t sound right because chocolate chip cookies have to be bad for you to taste good, right?

A few months before going live with my blog, I started taking pictures of the food I was making and as I’ve mentioned before: photography isn’t my forte!
