Deliciously Organic + Chocolate Chip Cookies and a Giveaway!

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? Right!! I mean seriously people, we all LOVE chocolate chip cookies. And if you don’t – I’ll eat your share for you! I’m such a caring person :)

One of my good friends Carrie just recently came out with a book Deliciously Organic, in which she has tons of recipes that use REAL ingredients. None of that processed stuff! Carrie and I are always at the Santa Monica farmers market stocking up on the best and quality ingredients as it’s something that is super important to both of us! Her new book is a collection of fantastic recipes that use organic ingredients and provides delectable results.

Recently I made the Chocolate Chip Cookies from Deliciously Organic, and while I won’t share the recipe here (because you absolutely must go buy this book and explore all the recipes) I will tell you that it rivals any chocolate chip cookie I have ever eaten! I must confess that while in pastry school, I was scared to use any other kinds of flour, in fear that my cookies or cakes would be dense… but man was I wrong! Carrie’s cookies call for roll oats, whole wheat pastry flour, whole wheat flour, whole cane sugar and muscovado sugar (none of which I had on hand) but I trekked to my local health store and stocked up on all of them! The result was a perfectly moist and light cookie. I promptly gobbled up 6 of these cookies and didn’t feel bad about it at all.

Carrie’s recipes are total crowd pleasers! There are organic twists on everyone’s favorite comfort food like, Chicken Wings, Muffins, Cobblers and Cookies! And each recipe is easy to follow and will make your kitchen smell wonderful! Not to mention the photography in the book, which was shot by another friend of mine, Helene of Tartlette, is absolutely beautiful!!

  1. Wow! Love that photo! You two are so lucky to live so close to each other. I’m pre-ordering Carrie’s book. But just in case I win, my favorite cookie of all time is the Monster Cookie–the one with all the raisins, M&Ms, chocolate chips, peanut butter, oats, and the kitchen sink. 😉

  2. I would love to try those chocolate chip cookies. Gosh, it’s hard to choose a favorite cookie, but I love chocolate chunk cookies with oatmeal, dried cherries, pecans and of course, chocolate chunks.

  3. my new favorite cookies are lime meltaways, which I made for the holidays this year. buttery, mouth watering, and delicious :)

  4. I live in San Diego and going to the Little Italy’s Farmers Market with my good friend is something I look forward to every Saturday! But enough about fruits & veggies… my favorite cookie is the world’s best combo.. PB & chocolate… these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies are T.D.F.!!! Would LOVE to incorporate more organic food into my recipes.. fingers crossed!

  5. Great giveaway, Gaby! So happy for Carrie’s success and this beautiful book she’s come out with. I’d have to say my favorite cookie is white chocolate/macadamia nut – mmm! Just thinking about them is making me want one… or ten!

  6. Cookies are my all time favorite dessert/snack .. and my favorite cookie has got to be chocolate chip oatmeal… it’s so hard to pick just one favorite cookie though….

  7. Love Carrie and Love CCC’s – but most of all I LOVE her new book – it’s more than a crowd pleaser it’s a WINNER! Everyone needs to go and buy a copy – and if I’m selected as the winner I’ll gladly donate the copy to someone who’s not fortunate enough to already have a copy x

  8. Gaby, that is so cool that you and Carrie get to enjoy that awesome farmers market together. I agree REAL food & the best ingredients we can find make life so much tastier & more fun! I am so happy for our friends for creating such a beautiful & informative book. Your cookies look wonderful!

  9. Hey Gaby, my favorite cookies are the toasted almond and dried cherry biscotti I made this year for Christmas. I love the combo of fruit and nuts in my cookies. But, chocolate chip will always be my first love!

  10. There aren’t many cookies that I do not like!! If I had to choose one, it would probably be chocolate chip-maybe with some walnuts or coconut in it too!

  11. My favourite cookies are the chocolate cookies with chocolate chips. I like them soft from the inside and crunchy from the outside. I should be doing one batch soon.

  12. My favorite cookie of ALL time, is the oatmeal, white chocolate, cranberry cookie…it’s amazing! It’s got rolled oats…brown sugar, crannberries, and white chocolate. I’m usually NOT a white chocolate fan, but in these cookies, it’s so worth it :-)

  13. fresh, out of the oven when the chips are chocolate gooey; CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! unless they’ve cooled … or even frozen …. yup always, choc chip cookies!

  14. Definitely Caramel DeLites (formerly Samoas) the girl scout cookie. I could never eat enough of those… next I need to try recreating them at home!

  15. I adore chocolate chip cookies but love them even more if you add a handful of oats to the recipe at the end.

  16. Chocolate chip cookies … the NY Times version, where you let the dough sit in refrigerator for 36 hours, it really brings out some amazing flavors.
