Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Solid, basic recipe. I started conservative on the dressing and didn't measure, but probably ended up with about the amount in the recipe and the slaw wasn't soggy at all. About a tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds do a lot for this recipe, along with maybe 1/8 teaspoon cayenne.

Fire Roasted Vegetarian Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This recipe features a bit of unnecessary juggling IF you have a sufficiently thick-bottomed pot (I use an ex-pressure-cooker). Cook the roux right in the pot, and the veg will saute nicely in the roux.

Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Delicious, very chocolatey cookies. I add 1/4t cinnamon and 1/8t cayenne--it doesn't make the cookies spicy, but elevates the other flavors. The dough is very easy to work with just hand-rolling it into logs and chopping off rounds. With cookies about 1in x 3/16in and a bit more baking time (12-15min.), you get a wonderful texture, al dente on the outside and soft when you bite in. I roll the logs and toss each cookie in a 2/2/1 mix of flour, cocoa and sugar. I don't refrigerate the dough, but often pause to turn on the oven and wash some dishes or just take a break after the logs are rolled out, before I chop them up. My sifting method is a quart bell jar and a butter knife :) I mix the dry ingredients in the jar, 'sift' them gradually to another container with the knife, play whack-a-mole with any visible clumps, and it all gets sifted again going into the dough. It's quicker and more effective than a colander. I'll put my complete recipe up on my blog, Flavors of Daylight.
