Brainfart while Baking

I'll preface this by saying honestly, usually I am very good at baking, I make everything from scratch and I never need to follow recipes. So I went to make cookies a few weeks ago, and I've done chocolate chip cookies the same way forever. I made a batch and they tasted awful, super dry, weird taste, and were heavy like breadish almost. Really gross. So I did another batch and got the same results. I gave up thinking I just mixed it wrong, and tried again today, I wanted to bake our neighbor some cookies since she used her tools to fix our fence. 2 batches and they were just as gross.

I was really confused. Until I realized that each time, I had been brainfarting and using baking powder instead of baking soda.

They're so gross, lol. I'll still eat them because I hate waste, but yeah, definitely not going to gift the neighbor with this.
