Mediterranean Breakfast Quinoa

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Be sure to use yellow quinoa. I used red quinoa (quinoa with the hull) and it took a lot more liquid and about a half hour more time to get a nicely cooked cereal. The fruit and spice amounts needed to be increased slightly as well but that can be done at the table.

Home-Style Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
I decant my honey into pint glass jars. I proofed the yeast in one of these jars with about a tsp of honey- the little bit remaining in the bottom. I added the yeast to the jar and added 1 cup of warm water. (I don’t do the 110° stuff. My body is at 98° so run the tap until the water is warm on my hand - think baby bottle temperature.) It will build up a bit of pressure as it rehydrates and comes alive again. You can read the Starter recipes for methods. I used the Ingredients list for rough proportions. The major change I made was to reduce the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup. I kneaded the dough again after punching it down. Instead of forming into loaves for pans, I split the dough into two roughly equal pieces. I formed these into balls with smooth tops, coated them with a little olive oil, and left them to proof on a baking sheet. When they had about doubled in size, I put them in a cold oven. I turned the oven on and baked them for 30 to 35 minutes - about 5 minutes more than the original recipe. The loaves are done when they sound hollow when tapped on their flat bottom. Cool the round loaves on cool stove burners.

Dosas (Indian-style Pancakes)

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Delicious savory crepes. I do not use wheat but I found Dosa Flour (a blend of rice and bean fours) at a local East Indian market. Best eaten fresh out of the skillet.

This is a fabulous spice mixture! The warm spicy flavor of the cumin and coriander is wondrefully complimented by the cool heat of the black pepper. I simplified preparation by purchasing a bottle of toasted sesame seeds.

Pfeffernuesse Cookie Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
The dough is a bit stiff to work with but the results are excellent! This is a spice cookie with a wonderful little "bite" that develops the main spice flavor. Excellent with a cup of hot tea.
