Chris and I saw Billy Elliot on Broadway this weekend and loved it. I couldn’t believe what an amazingly talented dancer this little twelve year old was. Is everyone on Broadway this amazing? Perhaps I’m out of the Broadway loop.
It gave me a whole new outlook on dedication though. This kid has given up a “normal” childhood to follow his dream. What a sacrifice. It sure is paying off though, he was incredible. His dancing and singing were as good as any adult in the show who had been practicing their whole lives.
Who knew a twelve year old could give you such a kick in the pants. A new level of chasing down what you want and diving in head first.
That had nothing to do with cookies, I just wanted to fill you in on some LYK musings of late.
With all the almond milk we’ve been making we have loads of almond meal left over.
I’d been searching for something to use it on and these cookies were the without-a-doubt winner. I’m some what of a chocolate/coconut combo addict.
While this is not an original recipe, I felt compelled to share it with you because it was that good.
After an epic fail with a lemon tart this weekend I didn’t have the guts to try and transform another recipe that requires baking.
Give these a try this week. They are really quick, healthy(ish), delicious, and a great way to put a smile on some family, friends or coworkers faces.
This recipe is by Minimalist Baker and adapted from the Sprouted Kitchen Cookbook.
I just couldn’t resist.
