Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I like this a ton - very fresh and light, a perfect summer salad, best cold and even better after having time to meld in the fridge. As always, I modified to make it my own: cilantro, English cucumbers, red onion, grape tomatoes, lime zest and honey, in addition to what is listed. To me, about a TBSP of honey was necessary to bring out that sweet/savory thing. I might try adding just a little bit of jalapeno to see if that really kicks it up, and I might try adding some avocado or grilled chicken. Served over baby greens, this is a killer lunch or dinner side.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This is a wonderful recipe! Sweet but with a warm spice flavor. I made a couple of modifications, as per the suggestions of others. I replaced half of the oil with cinnamon apple sauce, used 1 1/2 c. of dark brown sugar and 1 1/2 c. of white, and zested an orange in the batter. I also dusted the top with raw sugar. I have made it twice - both the day before I served it -and both children and adults couldn't get enough. It is a wonderful winter treat!
