Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of white sugar for a denser muffin. Used vanilla yogurt instead of plain (because that's what I had laying around..) and behold! The greatest chocolate chip banana muffins ever!! You're missing out on life if you've never tried this recipe. Use super ripe bananas (put bananas in a paper brown bag over night if yours aren't black bananas) You must use blank bananas!! Do not question it! I used 1/4 cup of mini milk chocolate chips and 1/4 cups of mini semisweet, then added 1/4 cups of chopped toasted pecans. Make sure to MIX YOUR DOUGH ONLY TILL COMBINE!! I cannot stress enough how vital the mixing process is when baking muffins. (It is okay to have lumps!! Just walk away after 20 turns or so)

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Alton Brown's pancake batter mix still remains my favorite, but this recipe is very delicious as well! Make sure to use REAL MILK!!!! I made the mistake of using Soy milk the first time I made these and YUCK!! They came out really bland and dense. Second time I used whole milk; best results. I added some vanilla extract to give a little sweet flavoring and some nutmeg. Best when served warm with a delicate drizzle of maple syrup (the real kind guys) or honey. Add some bananas and strawberries, and boy...life is good.

Chinese Steamed Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I've tried many dough recipes for steamed buns, and I swear by this recipe!!! All the others I have tried do no produce the same goodness and airy texture as this one. The dough is very sticky and requires additional flour to be added on when kneading (I used about 3/4 cups.) It really various and you just have to play it by ear. Added 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda to the dough to counteract the ''sour'' tasting due to long rise time. I placed my dough in a glass bowl and put the glass bowl in a large pot filled with warm/hot water and covered it. This allowed the dough to triple it's size within 1 1/2 hours (instead of 3...) I stuffed my buns with a meat/veggie mixture and let the buns rise for an extra 25 mins; steamed them in a large steamer and wow!!!!! ^____^ I ate like four buns in one sitting. So airy and light, fluffy. These buns didn't really come out super white (like in stores.) But it's just homemade buns, so I didn't really mind. However, I suggest adding a little bit of vineger to the water when steaming. Also, put some baking powder to your dough. And finally, squirt some lemon juice into your dough. This is produce some extra white buns! Love this recipe. TRY IT OUT!!
