Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Really, really good. I cooked four thighs and five or six medium size red potatoes with fresh rosemary, fresh garlic and fresh oregano. My daughter and I really enjoyed the meal...I thought we'd have leftovers for the next night, but by midnight snack time it was all gone. This is definitely a keeper. I would use a bit less oil than called for, and I always season my chicken liberally with freshly ground pepper and sea salt several hours ahead of time. This seems to allow the seasoning to penetrate the surface and I like the results.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I had no business starting this recipe...no black beans, no bread crumbs, no green (or red) pepper, so I did what I always do..improvise. Cut cumin to 1 tsp because I felt that a tablespoon was overkill. Used a can of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed. Used instant masa instead of bread crumbs. Shaped into six thin patties and fried in a nonstick skillet in just a whisper of oil. I had some homemade whole wheat buns to use and we topped the burgers with some pickled onion slices, mayo, dijon, and spinach leaves. My daughter and I both gave this a thumbs up. The patties weren't mushy at all and this is a great vegetarian dish.

Oat Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Everything went wrong with my process..Normally I check all ingredients before starting, this time I didn't and came up short on the AP flour (so I used a cup of AP and a little over 1/4 c. bread flour). Got out the applesauce (homemade thick and chunky) to find that I only had 3/4 c...so I filled the rest of the cup with some Greek yogurt. The batter was way too thick so I poured in the rest of a carton of half and half (no milk in the frig, either!). Added a cup of chopped walnuts, scooped into the muffin cups, sprinkled with a mix of turbinado sugar and pumpkin pie spice, let them sit for ten minutes, threw them in the oven and hoped for the best. They are superb! I will definitely make them again...hopefully following the recipe to a T. These will make a terrific breakfast on the run...thinking about adding some dried cranberries, too......

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
My family has been using this recipe for over 50 years...we know it as Crazy Chocolate Cake. It doesn't work for layer cake, but in my mind it is the best chocolate cake ever. Cut the recipe in half and bake in an 8" pan for smaller group. My mom always used to ice it with chocolate frosting laced with coffee. Yum!

Conchas (Mexican Sweet Bread)

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
These were perfect...slightly sweet and wonderful with coffee. I made just two modifications. I never use the full amount of flour called for in yeast breads recipes. I stirred in 3 and 1/2 c of the flour and then kneaded in enough of the rest of the 1/2 c to make the dough manageable. It did not require the full 4 cups. And, since I use a very potent cinnamon, I used only 1 tsp in the topping and splashed in a little almond extract as well so that the cinnamon topping was as moist as the vanilla. These are large rolls, so you could easily cut 16 instead of 12 and they would be great.

Pan Dulces

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
After cooling (and savoring that first one off the pan!) I slip each roll into a separate sandwich bag and then freeze. When you want one, just pop a bag into the microwave and hit defrost. You'll have a warm, soft treat with your coffee.....
