Raw Hummus

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Very, very good! My husband even said it was "comparable" to his "incomparable" favorite from a restaurant. Cannot stress enough the importance of the hot water dip; soaking beans leaves a bitter coating on the outside, and nothing else will wash it off. I actually sloshed my sprouts around in the hot water for five full minutes, which probably defeats the purpose of "raw," but I don't care. The sprouting alone increases the beans' nutrition and digestibility dramatically as it is. Also, the barely-cooked beans can make a grittier hummus if your food processor is not so snazzy. I used my blender and it was perfectly smooth and light.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
These are pretty tasty! I made some health-nut tweaks that I won't bother listing, and I also replaced the regular milk with buttermilk, which made a lovely contrast with my overripe sweet bananas. At 5am, I didn't want to take any unnecessary risks of undercooked batter, so I sliced the bananas instead of mashing them and scattered them over the batter I had just poured into the pan -- on each individual uncooked pancake. Upon the first bite, my husband gave off a deep, loud "MMMM!" and told me they were delicious. Thank you!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I halved this recipe, substituting molasses for half of the sugar (for more of the true gingerbread taste), using some whole wheat flour, and using fresh pumpkin puree that I had on hand. This was so good! The loaf turned out dark, rich, and very moist. Great for breakfast with some eggs and coffee!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
Oh, these cookies are to die for! This makes a nicely sized batch, too, even if you go by rounded T's instead of t's. These all had to be given away as gifts (sadly), but of course I sneaked a few for myself! So very chocolatey and moist. Because I like less-sweet chocolate, I'd cut back on the sugar next time. Take them out of the oven after about 8min, 30sec. They won't look or feel done, but that is the key to a moist cookie. Let them cool almost completely on the baking sheets; that keeps them chewy. Thanks a lot! This is going in my recipe book!

Cream Cheese Finger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
These were pretty good. I also rolled them into 1" balls, and at first they seemed really underdone; but after cooling completely they were just slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Interesting flavor, too; I may experiment with other variations (maple pecan, cinnamon spice, coffee etc.) as this recipe is so easy and versatile! Thanks!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
These were awesome! Not quite as brown and crinkly as the picture shows (maybe because I rolled the dough into balls), but they taste delicious and stay moist and flavorful. Thanks!

Currant Nut Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
These are so yummy! They were like little scones, and absolutely delicious while still warm. It was a stuggle keeping myself away from the dough before baking them all. I doubled the recipe, added some oats and flaxseed for a little extra variety, & sent them all out on Christmas cookie plates as gifts. Didn't make the glaze but I'm sure they'd be even better with it. Thank you!

Poppy Seed Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
This was very good...but it must be eaten fast! You have to stick it in the fridge no later than 2 days after baking it, or the bread will go bad and it tastes awful. The fridge might also dry it out a little bit, but warm it up and spread some butter on it and...oh boy, watch out!!

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I will need to be very, very careful around this cake when I make it again. Absolutely delicious and great with a dark, bold coffee and some cold, sweet fruit like peaches or berries!

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I made this with blackberries (and my first homemade piecrusts) instead of raspberries, and served it over vanilla ice cream right after it came out of the oven. Nobody could stop raving about it!
