Loved it! I also added golden raisins soaked in sherry for 1h, and for the 1 pound of nuts I added 1/2 pound of pecans and 1/2 of pistachios. However, the sorbet (it's not really called sauce, this is baklava) was not enough. I made twice the amount so the baklava was nicely moist when we tried it (the baklava is not suppose to be a dry dessert, but quite moist even soaking in sorbet. Ask any Arabian or Turkish baker).

Eggplant Parmesan II
Nice recipe. The taste is good, and my husband loves it a lot. I feel I should've baked the eggplants a bit longer than 5 minutes on each side, because some of them ended up being "raw" even after all that baking at the end. I would definitely use much less bread crumbs too, like 3 or even 2 cups instead of 4. I ended up throwing almost half of the amount because I wasn't able to use it again (got a lot of beaten egg mixed into the whole amount).

Chef John's Blueberry Muffins
I really like these muffins and the extra blueberry "kick" to them. But, I thought they were rather dry. I would probably add on a bit more sour cream or milk. They are definitely worth the experiment.
