Wine

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
That got me the equivalent of 5 bottles of wine for less than $15! Thanks so much! Hint: Garnish with ice cubes for a fancy wine cooler!

Yeast Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I have made this recipe twice now, and the original version is not perfect. The problems I have encountered are: 1. Too much salt. Cut the salt in half or else you will have an unpleasantly briney breakfast. 2. Reduce the yeast by 25-50%. Mine have had such an overpowering yeast flavor that I can't really find anything that goes well with the pancakes. 3. Add vanilla to the batter. It just goes well. That said, this recipe yields very fluffy, interesting pancakes. I have been letting the batter ferment overnight (slow-rise method) in the fridge, and then I warm it up the next day and let it rise a little more. The taste is much more complex than a normal pancake, and has no hint of the chemical aftertaste that you sometimes get when using baking soda/powder. If you are getting rubbery pancakes, you are stirring too much.

Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
A few pointers: 1. Do use more than two dashes of hot sauce. 6 will give it some nice flavor. 2. Make sure, especially if you're baking on aluminum foil, to spray with non-stick spray so the seeds don't get stuck and peel off with little bits of aluminum attached. 3. Make sure to spread the seeds out evenly on your baking sheet. Otherwise, the seeds piled up won't be done when the ones in a single layer are already burnt. This recipe is pretty good! I think you could kick it up with a blend of allspice and molasses rather than brown sugar, but otherwise pretty nice.
