Vegan Brownies
I was looking for a basic eggless brownie recipe to change into a fat free version. This was perfect!! I used skim milk instead of the oil and it works GREAT. I under baked them alittle so the inside was soft and gooey.

Holiday Chicken Salad
Actually, my mom wanted me to try to copy Corner Bakery's DC chicken salad. I was looking for a base recipe when I found yours. Great recipe. I didn't have cranberries, so i subbed in some raisins and a fruit/nut mix of walnuts, almonds and cranberries (part of the premade mix). I also used Miracle Whip instead of mayo...just one a healthier note. To make it more DC chicken like, I added some chopped apples, skipped the green onions and peppers, and added some minced ginger. It was just like the real thing! (maybe even better)

Cantonese Barbecued Pork
This was almost like the pork they sell in Chinatown. I marinaded the pork overnight and hung it to cook in my oven. Using paperclips work really well. though i found it hard to baste the pork because it was hanging. The color didn't reflect it's great flavor...I guess that's why the professionals use food coloring.
