Flourless Chocolate Brownies
This is awesome. FYI: Ghirardelli is sold at Target at a good price! I used Almond meal (from Trader Joe's) & raw sugar and lower glycemic palm sugar and batter was a bit gritty looking, but came out fine. I used the brown rice flour as recipe called for, and was so good (I sometime use other gluten free flours, but this was just fine) and I sometimes cut sugar, don't do it here. I also used my metal kitchen aid mixer bowl to stack on top of a regular pan since I had no official double broiler. I have tried a couple recipes from Ghirardelli and it's ALWAYS wonderful!

Ghirardelli(R) Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes
now I must admit, I really improvised; I did not want to leave my house just to buy ingredients.... so, the texture was great, the taste, ok. BUT definitely was b/c of my substitutions: had no Ghirardelli choc, so used 45% cacao semi-sweet choc chips (365 brand) and had no heavy whipping cream, so used dry milk and made it very thick when adding the water (this mixture would not harden in the fridge, so stuck in the freezer for a few minutes, and turned out just ok). I subbed spelt flour with 1 T. of potato starch for the cake flour. The chocolate was way too sweet, so def. make sure you use the chocolate it calls for. Also, I baked it in regular cupcake tins (with liners) and baked for about 11 minutes (I had enough batter for 10 cupcakes). The consistancy of the "lava" did improve the longer I waited to eat it (about 10-15 minutes after it is removed from oven is perfect). And oh, if you are watching it bake, and the liquid in the middle starts to ooze out a little at the top, take out immediately, it was in there too long.

Split Pea Soup
My 3 girls (7,4,3) and I eat Amy's canned split pea soup; this is 1st try at doing it myself. Soaked peas overnight in water. I drained, used about 2 cups of those peas, added about 2/3 box of chicken stock, didn't measure, but almost a whole box (Kitchen Basics brand) and added one finely diced onion, 3 finely diced celery stalks, "pinch" marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper, and one large minced clove of garlic. That is IT. No ham (I don't like to use pork) and no carrots or potato. Simmered for a couple hours (which it will seem like it is too watery), after the peas started to become mush, I pureed in a regular stand up blender, and WOW, let it sit to cool a bit for the kids, and it thickens to perfection-- if you have a picky eater child, ESPECIALLY if they have a hard time eating veggies because of texture, try giving them this! After pureeing the soup (could not taste any individual piece of anything!) the kids LOVED it. ALL 3!! Try it-- poor moms of little picky eaters :)
