Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Pretty good, although I might use more sugar next time. I over cooked it even though it was in there for 40 mins. Kind of like a large brownie. I used a blender. First I beat the eggs, then I put the eggs and the beans in a separate bowl. Then I blended the bean mixture in small 1/2 cup batches in the blender on Puree setting. I transferred each blended batch to another bowl and then when all was smooth as baby food, I combined it with the rest of the ingredients in the blender. About when I added the chocolate, I had to put it on a higher speed. I stopped every time I heard the motor change tone (air bubbles.) Make sure you SCRAPE OWN THE SIDES often so you don't get a stray chunk of bean in the batter. I lined the bottom with parchment paper and dusted the sides with cornstarch. I made this for a friend who is Celiac but I don't have rice flour and all the special gluten-free flours on hand. I am guessing you could actually do this with unflavored hummus instead of the beans, but you would have to use less than 19 ounces and there is a possibility it could be grainy. It would make it a lot easier to make, though. Terrific recipe. I love that it's so much more healthy with the beans...

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
The kids loved it. Low cost, nutritious and delicious. I might add carrot wheels next time to increase the veggir intake.

Coconut Rum Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
This recipe makes at least 20 - 25 rum balls with the footprint of a quarter. These are rich & decadent. I dipped mine in melted Ghiardelli chocolate. I will try Creme de Menthe or Peppermint Schnappes next; a flavored rum would have been better, I think. The Nilla wafers were rich and vanilla-y, but I suppose I just don't like rum all that much! The rum was a decent brand, but using coconut rum or Kahlua or creme de menthe might have been better. Easy to make and the kids enjoyed helping. Kids didn't like the flavor. My 9 yo son said the rum ruined them.

Sand Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I folded crumbs into one and one without. The one with crumbs in the pudding mixture itself was thick and almost gummy. The one without crumbs folded into the pudding was excellent. Kinda like the texture of nuts and ice cream. Next time I will have everything ready and assemble the cups at the last minute. I liked this as much as the kids. If you like mousse, cream pies, and anything with whipped cream, this is your dessert! I would wait until the last minute to top with sand and worms because I think the dry texture of the "sand" is best as a contrast. Nilla wafers were so nice and deeply vanilla. Wonderful combination.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Followed the recipe to the letter and this dish is OK, but lacking any pizazz. I expected a rich flavor with all the spices, but decidedly this dish is just OK. I have children, and they didn't care for it, it looks ugly. My children are age 5, 5, and 8. My 8 yo thought it was OK. Husband said it was OK, nothing to write home about.
