Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
I used dried hibiscus flowers (or jamaica at your local Mexican grocery store) instead of cranberries. And I used almonds that I toasted and chopped just before adding to the batter. I also added zest from one orange (about 1 tbsp), and the juice from half that orange. Overall, I think this is a very versatile recipe. However, it is on the sweeter side for biscotti. It worked well with whole grain flour, just make sure you either use pastry flour or white so it's not gritty. The "white" whole grain is made from a softer wheat.

Lemon Custard Pudding Cake
I cut this recipe in half and bake it in a bread pan for 50 min. I have made it a few times now and it's delicious. I only give it three stars because as is, it's too sweet and too mild on the lemon flavor, but I really appreciate the overall idea of pudding on the bottom, cake in the middle, and spongy meringue on top. When I cut it in half, I don't cut the lemon and zest in half. To balance out the additional juice, I add another egg yolk. Lastly I reduce the sugar by 1/4 c. (for 1/2 recipe). I also tried this with limes, but found lemon to be better. It works great with whole wheat pastry flour.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes
I read others reviews and followed the recipe exactly. Fantastic consistency, but incredibly salty! I read other reviews stating this only after I mixed the ingredients together. As is, the pancakes are not good.
