The random findings & babblings of a twenty-something living in Philadelphia. I graduated college in 2009 and I'm still getting used to this thing we call the "real world."My favorite things include Philadelphia (the city, the sports, the food), traveling, ice cream, giraffes, taking pictures & finding recipes online that I'll probably never actually get around to making. It's an interesting mix, but so am I.
If you live/work in Center City you better get on over to Pure Fare! [a long overdue shout out]
My friend Sarah is the chef over there!
Plus, this article was in City Paper the other day:
Love avocado and love chocolate, but never thought they’d play nice together outside a gelato cup — until we got our hands on the chocolate avocado cookies at Pure Fare (119 S. 21st St.). “I love manipulating fresh ingredients so that they still come out tasting like dessert,” says Pure Fare chef Sarah Ginn, who takes fresh avocado purée and mixes it with garbanzo bean flour, chocolate chips and Succanat (an unadulterated cane sugar product) as a sweetener. The resultant cookie, which is both vegan and gluten-free, has a cakey, brownie-like texture, with a hint of avocado creaminess that does well taking on butter’s responsibilities; you’ll be a fan if you’re into the off-sweet taste of proper dark chocolate. It’s not the only treat of this type Ginn produces, either — she’s also doing chocolate cookies using bananas as a base ingredient.
Must. Try. These!
