By cookiedog on food.com

-used all the lemon peel I could get from 1 lemon

-kneaded by hand instead of using a mixer

-this was done much earlier than 30 minutes, I took it out around 20

The dough was super sticky and I ended up kneading it into submission again on the baking tray so that it would actually be the right shape.

This is really nice-the first bread I’ve made that didn’t smell like much while baking, but smelled fantastic when cooled. I’ll bake this the next time I make something spicy with chickpeas.

Basil Butter Garlic Bread

http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/breads/basil-butter-garlic-bread/


-Didn’t have any parsley on hand, so I left it out.

-Added only a tiny pinch of salt


This made the house smell like magic while it was cooking. This is much better when fresh and fine cold, but didn’t reheat well. Slightly too oily for me. I don’t know that I’d make the entire recipe for myself again, but I would definitely make just the garlic-basil butter.

Homemade Butter

http://www.17apart.com/2012/04/how-to-make-homemade-butter.htmlh


From 17 Years Apart.


This was really easy! (With a mixer.)
The directions are really straightforward- I ended up walking away from the mixer, and knowing things were close when I could hear the buttermilk splashing.

Edamame Avocado Salad Sandwich

http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/edamame-avocado-salad-sandwich/

From TwoPeasandTheirPod.

-added more siracha, and didn’t put in wasabi powder. Wasn’t in a wasabi mood.

- upped the garlic to two cloves

This is amazing stuff. I’m making it the moment I get more avocados, but I’ll use a little less rice vinegar.

It did turn slightly brown after sitting in the fridge overnight, but kept its texture and tasted just as good.

Chocolate-Cherry Heart Smart Cookies

http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-cherry-heart-smart-cookies-10000001949710/

Chocolate-Cherry Heart Smart Cookies Recipe

From My Recipes, by Marcie Dixon

-Used dark chocolate chunks instead of bittersweet, and slightly less brown sugar

-used almond extract instead of vanilla

-used all whole wheat flour instead of half whole wheat, half all purpose

Mine didn’t flatten out to match the cookies in the picture- they flattened out some, but stayed pretty ball-like. The texture was also a little different than most cookies- these have more oats than flours.

These are amazing, kind of like baked trail mix cookies.Definitely making them again, and soon.

Pita Bread

Pita Bread

From About.com’s Middle Eastern Food, by


-12 minutes of kneading for dough to stop being gummy

-dough more than doubled in size after ~3 hours


If these aren’t rolled out thinly enough, you get a tasty flatbread, but not really a pita. If rolled out properly, there’s a good pocket.

Next time, I’ll be checking on the dough after an hour and a half, and adding some poppy seeds or za’atar.

Pineapple Chicken Stir-fry

http://www.grouprecipes.com/110193/pineapple-chicken-stir-fry—-diabetic-friendly.html

From Group Recipes, by spinach1948.

-Used 1.5 tbs oil

- Used carrots, sugar snap peas,broccoli, celery

-Used about half of a fresh pineapple

Took about half an hour to make (what with cutting up all the vegetables and pineapple). Reheats well. I’ll be making this again. I might try making it spicier next time.
