Sometimes things just don’t work out quite like you had planned or hoped. Over the last week or two I have had many failed recipe attempts. I try to make allergy-friendly recipes healthier, and I make regular recipes allergy-friendly. Unfortunately, a lot of my recipe conversions just don’t make the cut on the first attempt – or the third!

Other times, things do work out exactly (or pretty close!) to what you had planned, like these cookies. Unlike some of the other things I made the past two weeks, this recipe actually turned out very well! For me, cooking is like anything in life: you win some, you lose some! But either way, you have to keep trying.
