Persian Fesenjun
Instead of the paste/syrup, I used a 64 oz bottle of pomegranate juice boiled for about an hour to reduce down it down to 10 ounces. I still needed to put in a little cornstarch at the very end to thicken it slightly, but it worked just fine. I also added about 4 TBLspns brown sugar and 2 tsps each of tumeric and ground cardamom. It was a little tart, but this would have been fixed by adding more brown sugar. Will make it again, and may add in just a little bit of minced garlic with the onions to give it an extra something. (Serve with basmati rice & naan!)

MMMMM... Brownies
These brownies were delicious and very easy to make! They were both fudgy and cakey- a great texture! I'll definitely be making them again. The only change I made was that I used 9 oz dark chocolate bar (chopped into small pieces before melting) instead of chocolate chips. I baked in a 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 glass pyrex for exactly 25 minutes. This worked really well. One note is that I think the portion estimate is a bit off. The brownies were fairly thick, but the yield was only 8 normal-sized brownies, not 16.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes
These were pretty tasty. Not too "wheaty" or overly healthy tasting. My only complaint is that they came out fairly flat- I was hoping they'd rise a bit more and be a little lighter. Perhaps there should be a little more baking soda/powder, and/or the batter should sit a little while before putting it on the griddle.
