1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / veggie crock pot recipes? on: January 22, 2008 07:39:37 PM
So I just bought a 4-qt crock pot. The recipe book it came with is full of recipes for chickens or pulled pork or stuff like that. While I do eat chicken (ideally only twice a week or so), cooking a whole one isn't what I'm after.
For those of you with crock pots, what kinds of warm veggie delicacies are waiting for you when you come home from work?
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / baked oatmeal on: June 10, 2007 06:21:10 AM
A while back, on the "cheap food for college students" thread, someone posted a recipe for baked oatmeal. I made it, and it was good. But then I started to think about the fact that the recipe had an entire cup of sugar and half a cup of oil in it. Since I'd been dividing it into 4 servings, that meant I was eating a quarter cup of sugar and 2 T oil each time. Ick.

So I made a couple modifications:
Lighter Baked Oatmeal:
3 cups oats
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 t cinnamon (this is also a new addition)

Mix and add
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup milk (I use soy)
1/4 cup raisins

Pour into 9x9 pan
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Then, the other day, I had bananas that were too soft to eat. So,
Banana Nut baked oatmeal
3 cups oats
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
Mix and add
2 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup walnuts

Pour into 9x9 pan
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

This is not very sweet, but sugar can be added. This is even healthier than my first version because you get half a serving of fruit per serving. No added fat (except the walnuts), and no added sugar!

Now I can feel good about eating baked oatmeal. This is great since it will really keep you going until lunch. I eat the first quarter the day I make it, then put the rest in the fridge and heat for a couple minutes in the microwave.
3  COOKING / Dessert / baking brownies in cupcake tins? on: February 18, 2007 10:49:24 PM
Hi. I'm new. So my boyfriend is coming to visit this weekend and I want to make him a nice dinner. I have the dinner part down, but I'm not sure how to go about doing what I want to for dessert.

First off, my oven's kind of funky and I rent, so there's not too much that can be done about that. Last time I made brownies, I gave them 2 minutes less than the box said (I'm a student. Mix is cheap.), let the oven preheat for 15 minutes before putting them in, and they still came out funky (rose perfect in the middle, dense, flat and overcooked on the edges). My experience with muffins is marginally better than my experience with pan-sized baked goods, so I was hoping to be able to bake brownie mix in muffin tins. But how do I do this? Do I use a different temperature? Does the baking time change, and if so, how much? I also don't have a window on the oven door, so I can't peek too much without letting all the heat out. Any experience with this?
