Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I was looking for a Chocolate Cherry muffin recipes. Following the other reviews, and my own tastes, I made the following changes. Decreased the flour by 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup of cocoa. Substituted 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour for some of the white flour. Used 1 cup chopped extra dark chocolate (85%) for the chocolate chips, added one cup dried tart cherries. Mixed the cherries and chocolate with the dry ingredients. YUM! The chocolate and cherries didn't sink, the texture is nice and dense, perfect with a cup of coffee. Even if you are not a dark chocolate lover I think you will like these. The addition of the cherries and extra dark chocolate give them some antioxidents!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
First batch I followed the recipe to the letter, it is very good as written. Second (and many batches later) I made the following adjustments after reading the other reviews. Changed the ratio of pistachios and cranberries (Craisins) to one cup each. Added the zest of one orange to each double recipe. Drizzled white chocolate melted with a bit of shortening over the top. I used a good serrated bread knife to do the slicing and had no problems whatsoever. A bread knife is serrated differently than a regular serrated knife. I baked on a silicone sheet rather than parchment paper, worked wonderfully. But don't slice on it! These were a huge success with the cookie exchange at work.
