Use Of Tags

Just another friendly reminder that you can tag your posts. Tags allow the automatic archiving of posts, so that you can easily find recipes, tips, etc. I've been keeping up on tagging posts by running through the day's posts a couple of times a day, and I have noticed that more people are using tags regularly, and that's great, as it makes the community so much more accessible to everyone :)

Chocolate fruit cookies ala boyknife ala Tom

Someone gave me a hunk of low-quality vegan already-sweet chocolate.

3/8 c microwave-melted eating chocolate

1/8 c dark dutch-process cocoa powder

1/2 cup applesauce

0 cups sugar, 0 tsp baking powder, 0 spices, 0 cups interesting flour or seeds or anything as this was a test

1/2 banana

1/2 cup unbleached white flour

3/8 cup raisins, 1/4 cup macadamias

Drop by the teaspoon. If they are too big they will be too soft to put in a cookie jar. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

As boyknife says, these are gooey and chocolatey, perfect for brownies (thanks!), but next time I will add, at the least, some anise or cardamon or cumin or orange peel or cinnamon or ginger, and use more interesting flour and germ or seeds, because these are cookies, not brownies, and part of the reason I make cookies is for fiber.

pita chips ideas

I had some amazing pita chips that I got from a farmer's market recently. I wanted to make some of my own, but Im not sure how. I looked at the ingridents they were pretty much pita, lemon, oil, and herbs for the most part. I was wondering if any of you guys knew which herbs or spices would go best on baked pita chips?

Besides the lemon ones are there any tried and true recepies that would be good with them? Ive heard of baking " cheese" and garlic powder on them, but I dont know any others. Any ideas?
