Lentils And Spinach
"This is actually pretty good," said the man who usually chokes down lentils just to be polite. I thought it was better than good. I used the suggested 1 cup of lentils and 2.5 cups of broth, and made sure my onions had caramelized before I added the other ingredients. Added 1 cup diced carrots towards the end, then wilted fresh spinach into the mixture, along with 1/4 cup julienned sundried tomatoes. I even used the full amount of cumin called for, although I usually go easy on cumin in other recipes. Served over brown rice accompanied with naan bread (recipe from this site). I wish I had leftovers!

Supreme Strawberry Topping
I haven't seen a "pint" of strawberries forever, so I used a 1-pound package. If you're using berries out of your garden, these were my equivalents: 1 pound of berries yielded 1 1/2 cups of coarsely sliced berries that I simmered with the sugar and vanilla, AND 1 cup of diced strawberries that I stirred in after I blended the cooked mixture with a stick blender. This was delicious--it wasn't too sweet and didn't need artificial red food color added. I multiplied the batch for use on ice cream sundaes for teacher appreciation week, and it was a bigger hit than the squeeze chocolate topping. I can't wait to try it on waffles.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies
I doubled the recipe (had lots of zucchini to use up) and used butter instead of shortening (I don't own shortening), and added chocolate chips. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The dough was VERY stiff until the zucchini was "folded" in (my heavy-duty mixer did it for me), and then it was quite gooey. When my cookies baked, they spread out and smoothed out a bit more than I expect drop cookies to. I love dark chocolate, but these seemed to have too much unsweetened cocoa powder, which made them a bit "unsweet." Thank goodness for the chocolate chips, which gave a bite of sweetness every once in awhile. Even cream cheese frosting on top didn't do much for these. I won't be making these again--I'd rather save my cocoa and butter (and even zucchini) for something else.
