Seminary Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Fantastic! My husband and I agreed these are our favorite muffins yet. We left out the nuts, out of necessity, but otherwise left the recipe unchanged. Texture and flavor were spot-on. Will make this again and again and again!

Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
4 out of 5 stars only because of the need to reduce butter. I also switched all white sugar for half white and half brown & then halved the recipe and happily have more than enough cookies! For those of us who like sweet things, but still find many sweet desserts a bit "too much" the addition of the mint balances these out quite nicely. Watch for over-cooking, one batch of mine I inadvertently over-did just a hair and the bitterness of the slight burn on the bottom is underscored by the slight bitterness of the chocolate making it worse, so def. watch these -- they're well worth it when they come out right!

Pumpkin Protein Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Pretty good approximation of the "healthy" breakfast cookies popular in coffeechops these days. But, um, "sugar-free"? Seriously? There's molasses in there. Molasses = mostly sugar, by calories. I love the stuff and am not afraid of a little sugar, though, so totally leaving that in & instead replacing the Splenda (I distrust synthetic sweeteners more than I fear calories from sugar) with a bit of white sugar.

Cajun Baked Catfish

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Ridiculously simple and easy -- especially great when making a multi-dish meal with more complicated sides. I took the advice of reviewers and replaced garlic salt with garlic powder. I actually also replaced most of the seasonings (all but garlic powder and thyme) with my accidentally-nuclear-hot homemade chili powder, as this mimicked a lot of the same ingredients and proportions and was already mixed up. (And, I just wanted to use it up -- it's been the culprit in one inedibly-hot vegetarian chili incident already.) Cooked the fish for about 16-18 minutes and was done perfectly in my oven. Going the fork-flake route for done-ness testing was more useful than the time recommendation for me. (Often the case for fish, regardless of what random rental oven I am working with at the time.) Next time I might add a dash of lime before serving. Still, this is a great fast-and-easy fish recipe that will impress your guests, probably even without my half-random modifications. Definitely give this one shot!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Delicious, healthy and quick to make. I used red quinoa and it really shines in this dish.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Wow, wow, wow -- yum! Recipe, as is, worked out perfectly for bread and muffins, both. Made 8 extra-large muffins and one loaf. Muffins took 25 minutes for me & the loaf over an hour. (Lost track of the timing -- lucked out and rescued it just in time!)

Ginger Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This one's a winner! It's delicious as is. However, I will try the additional steeping for stronger ginger flavour next time, and see how that goes. I like a *strong* ginger element. It's just fine as is -- more of a hint of ginger blended with the lemon. Definitely a hit in my household!

Summer Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Very good recipe -- lots of flavour variety and an easy/quick prep. We made ours in the crock pot instead of on stovetop and added in rice to the leftovers to thicken it up. We'll definitely make this one again!
