About this Cook
I'm not a dieter, but I do try to eat healthfully, so I am always trying to find ways to add nutrients and cut calories and fat without sacrificing taste. I'm a very busy law student as well, so quick, easy and cheap recipes really appeal to me. I also love to experiment with different world cuisines, using the most authentic ingredients I can find.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken
This had great flavor. I used the full amount of seasoning for two breasts, and I would think that any less wouldn't have been enough. For health reasons, I did not use the full amount of butter, and eye-balled the olive oil, but I added a little broth when I added the lime. I also made a gravy out of the sauce by whisking in a tablespoon each of flour and water after removing the chicken. My two big criticisms are 1) that the required amount of garlic powder at the end would have been way too much, and 2) maybe it's just my stove, but the cooking time was too long. I only cooked it for about 12 minutes total, and our chicken was dry. So I'll use the recipe again, but will use my judgment with the spice levels and cooking time.

Oatmeal Pancakes II
I've tried a number of pancake recipes on allrecipes, and this is my absolute favorite. I use whole wheat flour rather than all-purpose and usually just sour skim milk w/a little vinegar since that's what I have on hand. (Who just has buttermilk sitting around??) I grind the oatmeal in my coffee grinder and usually throw in a couple dashes of cinnamon. This recipe stands up really well to additions as well - I've used this base to make banana pancakes (1 mashed banana) and mixed berry pancakes (a handful of blueberries and 3 sliced strawberries). This recipe has become our Sunday morning routine and it's a little less guilt-inducing than regular pancakes, without sacrificing any taste!

Hummus III
This is sooo much better than store-bought hummus. You will want to hold onto the liquid from the beans and add it to the food processor to improve the texture. I would recommend cutting back on the tahini a little, but I've used the full amount before and I didn't think it was terribly overpowering; it's just better with less. I like to add a jalapeno or two when I'm processing it as well. I've forgotten the lemon juice before too, and it was fine - it's better with the lemon, but it's not a disaster if you don't have any on hand.
