Chocolate Earl Grey Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
If you like extremely cakey cookies, these are for you. I up-ed the tea bag count to nine (3 Earl Greys, 3 Lady Greys, 1 Indian Spice Chai, and 2 decaff supermarket brand Earl Greys) and it wasn't too strong. Like one of the reviewers said, I sprinkled decorative sugar on top for presentation's sake - that was good advice since these cookies aren't really pretty given their color and shapelessness. The flavor is unique, and makes for a good candidate to add variety to a cookie box gift, but I don't think I'd recommend them for shipping because they are so soft.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
This recipe was quick and very easy to make. For my taste, I would increase the number of tea bags since I thought that the flavor of the tea didn't stand out enough against the sugar (I used Lipton tea bags so maybe they were weak?), but it's true that the bitterness isn't there, and if that's due to the baking soda, then hats off to whoever discovered the trick!

Breakfast Quiches to Go

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Wow, these came out even better than I had imagined, how scrumptious! I used only 1/2 package of cream cheese (1/3 reduced fat and it was still good), and half a bag of frozen collard greens because that's all I had/my bf doesn't like spinach. As someone recommended, I sauteed the onions first, then also added the greens to that to cook for a bit, then let the mixture cool before adding to the egg mixture (of which I used 5.) I also tried both the garlic and butter flake flavors for the dough, and actually personally preferred the butter flake one - it really was buttery, while not overpowering the egg filling like the garlic does a bit. These are impressive-looking too and very presentable, and would make a perfect addition to a potluck brunch.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
These were fun to make, not too laborious, flexible in terms of ingredient swops, cheap, and also particularly great for vegetarians that are mindful of protein intake (considering the beans, egg (up-ed it to 2 as someone recommended) and sliced cheese which is yummy melted atop the patties). I also rinsed the beans and let them drain overnight to dry out - saves that extra drying step, plus paper towels. To be fair, I didn't have the same spices on hand so I made some changes - substituted crushed red peppers for the chili powder and added some curry powder and onion salt as well - it still all came out well. I also used Panko for the bread crumbs, which worked fine. My veggie bf really liked these burgers, so we decided our next weekend activity will be mass-producing a stash of these for the freezer for future quick-and-nutritious dinners. Thanks for uploading!

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Definitely plenty sweet with half the sugar. I used soymilk because that's all I had on hand. It was a teeny bit on the gritty side, but maybe that was the soy, not the cocoa. Either way, very yummy!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This is definitely one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes I have ever tried. It's crispy/crunchy on the outside, gooey-chewy-soft on the inside, not too terribly sweet (I mixed in dark chocolate chips - and only 1 cup, also good with 3/4 cups of big walnut pieces)... heavenly. And if you stick with measuring each cookie at 1/4 cup of dough (I lined them up in balls, only slightly flattened) they come out looking quite impressive too. Definitely a match made in heaven for the tall glass of ice-cold organic milk! Thanks.
