West Coast Trail Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
This makes an excellent and hearty cookie, seems flexible for add-in ingred. I used a few of wcm's ideas listed in the notes so as to use what I had: wheat germ and sunflower seeds instead of flaxseed and pumpkin seeds. I used dark choc chips, perfect for this cookie - and usually I like milk choc in cookies. The coconut made them wonderfully chewy. My only significant changes were no cinnamon nor Craisins. I will try 1/2 t salt next time, the third time with cinnamon. It's great that everyone can now see this recipe.

This was amazingly good. My minimal changes: butter; blended butter, sugar, and eggs b/4 adding the rest; put 1 T lemon jce in cup and added enough milk (evap) to make 1/2 c; greased pan and used parchment paper. Next time will try more lemon jce in batter and a bit less sugar in topping. The topping was a little sugary, but that may have been because of humid weather or not enough jce. An unexpected treat: removing the loaf from the pan, I smelled a buttery, lemony goodness. Long ago I lost most of my sense of smell. To feel like I walked by a little bakery right after a batch of lemon bread was taken out of the oven, I have to thank you, manella. Getting this connection - and knowing instantly what it was - after 31 yrs of near nothing makes me want to make this bread often.

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
This was fantastic. As jmcdaneld said, it's easy to switch up ingred. My changes: fresh garlic, no honey or pepper, added cumin. ?ingred amts. I had only an hr for marinating, got plenty of flavor. It's now a go-to recipe.

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Have you ever tried a recipe that instantly becomes a favorite? This is one for me! My only change was making 15 cupcakes w/ the second batch. The flavor was excellent the first time, but the cupcake liners were too full.

Light Avocado Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2013
This is fantastic! I used Dijon mustard and extra avocado but look at this recipe as one where the egg-avocado ratio can easily be varied. I don't like using mayo and and a lot of egg yolks; what a great find is this idea. K-Dub, I hope you share more of your recipes!
