Mojito Sorbet

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
To really get the good mint flavor, use 1 cup of mint, and instead of boiling it (boiled mint is not the tastiest in any recipe) bring the sugar and water to a boil, turn off the heat, add the mint leaves, and let it steep for 30 minutes before straining out the leaves and cooling the syrup. I also cut the lime juice to 3/4 cup. I liked it, a lot like a real mojito :)

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Like Lynn, I altered this recipe to make it healthier. But instead of swapping apple sauce for oil, I omitted the oil and swapped 1/2 cup of the flour for 1/2 cup of finely ground flaxseeds (rich in omega 3 oil, fiber, and lignans, a chemical compound that helps build the immune system and has antioxidant and anticancer effects) I used only whole wheat flour and 2 cups berries. I baked them for 15 minutes, and these came out great! Moist, rich without being heavy, excellent texture and flavor. Coming right out of the oven they are keen to fall apart, but after they cool they keep together well. Some people are put off by the idea of flaxseeds, but if you (and your kids) already like the somewhat nutty flavor of oatmeal, you (and your kids!) will probably like the light nutty flavor of flax! Each muffin works out to having about 800mg of Omega-3, which is 80% of the 1 gram minimum RDA experts are leaning towards :)
