Honey Wheat Cookies
Fantastic recipe! I added half a cup of brown sugar that I creamed into the butter before I added the peanut butter and honey. Also used whole wheat PASTRY flour which made them unbelievably fluffy. Used wheat germ instead of bran. These are so good and nutritious, as cookies go. Not like I need an excuse of them being healthier to eat them, they are totally yummy!

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II
So good with my own adaptations! I made 2 cups of Not Chick'n bouillon, added 1 teaspoon of nutrional yeast, then cooked the lentils and barley in it until tender. I sauteed the onions in olive oil with 3 cloves of minced garlic, added the walnuts to toast, sauteed the carrots until tender, added about 6 diced button mushrooms, then added about half a cup of frozen chopped spinach, and half a cup each of frozen peas and corn. I then made a nutritional yeast gravy, and mixed it together with the lentil and barley and veggies. I made the mashed potatoes, added a thin layer of cheddar cheese on top of the veggies, then added the mashed potatoes. I then topped the potatoes with cheddar cheese, sprinkled parmesan on top of that, then sprinkled with paprika for added color and a light sprinkle of black pepper. AWESOME!

Mom's Pie Crust
Great recipe, very easy to roll out! The only thing I did differently was to add a little more water so the dough would form a ball. This made making my own pie from scratch a snap...thanks so much for this great recipe!!
