Tabbouleh III

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Definitely heavy on the bulger and olive oil for me. I was hoping for something a bit more green than grain. Thankfully I decided to add the olive oil sparingly, half actually. 2/3 cup just seemed way excessive. I added only 1/3 cup and it still seemed like too heavy a texture. In the future I will probably try a higher ratio of veggies to grain and cut down on olive oil even more.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Tasty, but there is an issue with spreading, as mentioned in many of the other reviews. I tried refrigerating the dough, but that hardly helps the cause. You will have to make adjustments. This recipe is actually nearly identical to the recipe that comes on the underside lid of the Quaker Oats canister. The only difference, but clearly an important one, is the amount of flour that is added to the mixture. The result is a well-formed cookie. A touch too crisp on the edges for my taste, so I developed a technique that helps keep softness uniformly throughout the cookie. My preference is to turn off the oven ever so slightly on the early side. I open the oven door to let the hot air out, then shut the door and let the residual heat finish baking the cookies. After letting them cool and set, you're left with a deliciously soft, yummy treat.

Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Perhaps my expectations were too high, but this recipe was definitely a disappointment. I will definitely give it another go, though - in a smaller batch. It was runnier than I expected it to be. I realize this is a summer soup, so I don't want it to be overwhelmingly heavy or rich. I would just like a bit more body.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
These heavenly muffins were a smash hit at this year's Halloween party. Not to be confused with cupcakes, these little beauties have a muffin-like density and are super moist. The streusel topping is nice, but I was more conservative with that and added my own whipped topping with nutmeg. Delish!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Delicious and STRONG! I was going to a potluck lunch at a friend's house where I didn't know the other guests. The sangria was a hit the second I walked through the door - who doesn't like sangria? After a glass of this stuff, forget about being shy! Be particularly careful measuring out the frozen lemonade as it changes the sweetness of the recipe dramatically. Think about making two batches and letting them marinate with the sliced fruit overnight. My first batch was gone really fast! Definitely worth purchasing the hard liquor.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Just being able to snack without the guilt makes this a worthy recipe. These chips are delightfully crispy when baked the right way. My first batch I baked for 10 minutes - all the small leaves were baked well, but the larger ones remained limp, chewy, and bitter. After a couple more batches, I found that with my oven I needed to leave them in for a good 20 minutes. I find that the bitterness is barely noticeable with enough baking. When there is more moisture left behind, I found the chips to be more bitter - though I didn't mind the bitterness too much. I added a sprinkle of garlic powder, salt, and white pepper. I'm excited to try other flavors! This recipe is definitely worth a try.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
The best part about these cupcakes was the tangy frosting. Delicious! The marriage of the frosting and cupcake was a good balance. I expected the cupcake to have more of a lemony aroma which was lacking. I like to follow the original recipe first and foremost - Next time I might try adding more lemon zest to the batter.

Poor Man's Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
This sandwich is amazing for what it's made out of. Like many who've reviewed it before, I tried it out of sheer curiosity and skepticism. It's both sweet and savory. I'm curious to try different versions of it in the future.
