Honey Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
WOW! This was excellent. Seriously, look no further if you would like a simple and delicious recipe. My girls loved it and I have picky eaters and my littlest has allergies so it was nice that this was egg and milk free. I noticed some people said they had a difficult time working all 7 cups of flour into the mix. First, you should be sure you are using a cup for measuring dry ingredients (not liquids!). Next if you are digging your cup into the flour you are doing it incorrectly! You should actually be using a scoop to sprinkle into the cup then level with a flat surface (like the back of a knife). This is crucial because digging into the flour with the cup may cause flour to get packed tightly (not what you want!) you will think you measured 7 cups and you really have 8 or 9! Hope that helps! If you get down to your last bit of flour and the dough seems a little dry don't be afraid to dampen your hands with a little water to work the last bit in, which is what I had to do. I thought the recipe was excellent and I would definitely recommend it.

Curried Quinoa

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I made this last night and we loved it! I had to sub red pepper flakes for the ancho chile powder because that is what I had on hand but other than that I stuck to the exact directions of the recipe. I thought the flavors in this dish really went well together. This was our first time trying quinoa and I would say this a great way to start off if you have never made it before. The instructions were simple and quick. My husband loved it which shocked me because he is not very adventurous when it comes to his taste buds. I will definitely make this again!
