    Lemon-Coconut Zucchini Muffins TNT

    DH doesn't like anything w/ zucchini but even he liked these! If you're not into whole wheat flour and flax, you could easily omit the flax and use all AP flour. But these turned out very nice and light even w/ the wheat flour. 3/4 c AP flour 3/4 c wheat flour ¾ c sugar 2 heaping TBSP...

    What's for Dinner, Friday, June 20, 2008?

    Beth, that sounds delicious--could you post the recipe? Thanks! Sofie's still sick and we're all exhausted from being up pretty much all night so I think it's a good night for take-out pizza here. Her fever's down and she's had more energy, though, so I think that she's on the mend.

    What are you baking today?

    I was up really early today so I decided to bake before the house got too hot. I wanted to use up some of the zucchini I got in our weekly CSA box so made a double batch of coconut-lemon zucchini muffins. I'll try to post the recipe later.

    Dinner, Thursday June 19th

    Not sure. DD got really sick late this morning. It was like a switch flipped, fine one minute and a 102 degree temp and really tired and achy the next. She's sleeping right now, which is really unusual, and I'm pacing (I dont' do well when she's sick, after she had such a rough start as a...

    In Remembrance of Our Dear Friend Buck

    Oh, dear, sweet, Katie. I haven't been able to get on to DC for a few days and was just horrified when I found this. I'm so sorry for you and your family. I'll be keeping you all close in my heart and prayers. As everyone has said, it was truly an honor to have had the chance to get to know...

    Strawberry Jam w/out Lemon Juice?

    I made a batch of strawberry jam today and it turned out really well. I was so excited to package it up, that I forgot to add the fresh lemon juice. My recipe only calls for 2 tsp for every 2 c of jam, so it's not much. I know that it adds a brightness to the flavor, but will not having it in...

    Swiss Chard and Potatoes Recipe TNT

    I think it would work fine. Mine ended up getting pretty mixed together when we served it. But baked this way, it reminded me a lot of potatoes au gratin. You could probably even used those fresh diced or shredded refrigerated potatoes that you find in the coolers at the grocery store.

    Swiss Chard and Potatoes Recipe TNT

    We're members of a CSA again this year so I'm being forced (in a really good way!) to cook with some veggies that I normally wouldn't buy. This past week's box included a large bunch of swiss chard, something I haven't worked with much at all. This turned out wonderfully! Swiss Chard and...

    I'm Back!

    Hi, friends! I've been MIA for 2 months and finally have made it back "home" to DC! I've missed you all so much! Life just got way too hectic (still is!) and I needed to scale back on some extras. Between DH's busy work schedule and DD giving up naps, there's been a lot keeping my hands...

    Great-granny Fanny's blackberry cake..help?

    I have recipes that call for either powder or soda, but not both, so I think that part of the recipe is fine. Just make sure your baking powder is a double acting (it'll cause a reaction for rise when you mix the ingredients and again when the cake is baked). I'd fold it in at the end. That...

    ISO bundtlette recipes

    Elf's right--just use whatever recipe you'd use in a regular sized bundt pan, but reduce baking time accordingly (like when you make cup cakes rather than a full-sized cake). I've been tempted to get one of those bundtlette pans but it'd be too dangerous around here--anything that little and...

    What are you baking today?

    Chopstix, those brownies sound divine! Sofie's swim class was canceled because of all of the snow and ice we're getting, so after being outside to play in the snow at 7 AM (Sofie was up really early, excited about the snow!:rolleyes:) we came in and made some oatmeal-cranberry bars together.

    Cast-Iron Lamb Cake Mold?

    We have a cast-iron cake mold/pan that dh's mom used to use every Easter when dh was a kid. I'd like to use it for Easter this year (w/ specific decorating instructions from dh so it's just like the labs he had growing up!:rolleyes:). I've never baked in one of these before and am wondering if...

    Dinner plans for Tuesday, February 19th?

    I had meant to pull leftover chili out of the freezer but didn't realized unilt just now that I'd grabbed a container of beef stroganoff instead. So it looks like it'll be leftover beef stroganoff over rice, steamed broccoli, a basic green salad with balsamic dressing and some homemade...

    What's for dinner? Feb 18

    Flourgirl, I hope your family's feeling better soon! It was a non-celebration day here, too. I'm getting over the flu and can still only keep down dry cereal or oatmeal and DH is out of town. So dd and I celebrated by cracking open a new package of Imaginetrics (like Colorforms but thin...
