CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH 
…HUMMUS
yeah it’s kind of weird
however it’s dairy-free and gluten-free and vegan and raw (I am none of these things BUT HEY), has a decent protein content if that’s something you care about, and it does have a distinct chocolate-chip-cookie-dough feel. Also definite novelty to it so worth at least one try?
The recipe was originally found at this blog over here but I messed with it a lot. If you’re interested in the original though, head on over there.
1 1/2 cups chickpeas (canned, drain it, rinse it, do it again maybe) 
2 pinches of salt
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs peanut butter (and probably I could have gotten away with one, I think it was mainly for texture?) or other nut butter if you can’t or don’t want to peanut
almond milk (or whatever milk you want really, I just have almond milk I want to use up) start with two tbs and add more as you need—I ended up using maybe 1/4 cup
1 tbs brown sugar
1-2 tbs honey (replace with brown sugar or maple syrup if you want to go the vegan route)
2 to 3 tbsp oats (also for texture I think?)
Chocolate chips, however much you want (but be careful; I used a little over 1/4 cup and it was too many, but that’s just me)
Add everything but the chocolate into a food processor or blender. Food processor would be way better, but I don’t have one so I used my mini-blender. It worked but it took a while. If you’re using a blender, you’ll probably have to stop a few times and scrap down the sides. This is also when you’ll need to add more milk maybe, depending on how thick a mixture your blender will…blend.
Blend until smooth. Then blend more. Remove from blender. Fold in chocolate chips. Eat! With spoon, or on graham crackers, or even on actual cookies. Cookie-ception? I recommend with milk. It sort of needs milk. View Larger

  • Men:If Orange is the New Black is so good with representation, why are all the men horrible?
  • Women:They're not all horrible. Bennett's nice. What more do you want?
  • Men:But he's clueless and irresponsible! And that's just ONE guy! How can you give me ONE decent male character in a slew of diverse female characters and call THAT representation?

I’m totally sad I can’t be at LeakyCon because it is everything I want. I guess Sarah and I can sit in our respective corners and pout.

after what feels like literally the longest week of my life working on it my marauder’s map dress for leakycon is DONE!! as a side note, i literally never want to use another fine point sharpie in my life.

THIS IS AMAZING OMG

This is beyond amazing and inspiring.

This is so so pretty, and in its beauty and the obvious hard work and dedication put into its beauty are clearly representative of Leakycon itself. Obviously I can never go, but I am SO PROUD of my beautimous friends Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman for running such a fantastic thing, in which everything runs smoothly and beautifully but in an individual and loving way, and I think all the authors going are amazingly fabulous (go to Malinda Lo and Alaya Dawn Johnson’s panellation! and Holly Black will teach you how to fix your book!). So: LOVELY. Everyone going to Leakycon please enjoy yourselves, get lots of books, and prepare to be dazzled by wonders.

This is AMAZING. And I am so excited to go to LeakyCon!!
