Matcha Madness
I love that this recipe is so healthy! (I made mine even healthier by using unsweetened almond milk.) I was also attracted to this recipe because it doesn't require any ice cream/froyo, which I didn't have on hand. That being said.... the lack of frozen ingredients makes this shake pretty liquidy and flat - even if you use 6 ice cubes like I did. It's fine as a beverage, but nothing like the milkshake consistency I was hoping for. If you want a green tea milkshake/smoothie rather than a green tea drink, I think you do need to use ice cream or froyo. Alternatively, maybe you could make this drink, put it in an ice cube tray, and then blend the frozen cubes? I might try that next time. Also, I'd recommend adding some sweetener (not much - I just used 2 tsp agave nectar) to this recipe, unless you used sweetened milk of some kind.

Chocolate Crinkles II
My favorite chocolate cookie recipe ever! It's amazing how rich and fudgy and chocolately it tastes - almost like a brownie. It's so moist, yet not at all greasy (and uses so little oil!) Also, if you take them out of the oven a bit early, they'll be like mini chocolate lava cakes - nice and softish-crunchy on the outside, but gooey and wonderful on the inside :).

Extra-Easy Spinach Lasagna
Fantastic! I'd never made lasagna before, but my fiance was really impressed with this. Sooo easy! My only caution is to allow *plenty* of time for the lasagna to cool before eating it. I let it stand for 30 min, and even then, it was just barely cool enough to eat!
