kitchen win and kitchen fail

Last night I made my best batch of workout cookies yet!  I changed up the recipe a little bit to this:

1/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. oats
1/2 c. rice krispies
2 T. (or so) chia seeds
1/4 c. ground flax
1/4 c. (scant) brown sugar
1/2 c. plain yogurt
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. choc. chips

By the way, I don't put these in a muffin tin - I just spread them in a square pan.  These came out great - a little fluffier and a little thicker.  Dave and I both noticed a difference!  We'll have to see if I can repeat it again.

Then I decided to try Fruit, Seed, and Nut Power bars... with a big FAIL.  I used almonds, dates, peanuts, raisins, sunflower seeds.  I didn't have any orange juice, but we had this in the fridge:
The end result:
The taste was fine... nothing fantastic, nothing gross.  But they fell apart as soon as I started cutting them, despite being chilled.  That was majorly disappointing!  I'm not sure what went wrong?  I guess we'll just crumble it and eat it over yogurt?

Have you had any big kitchen wins or kitchen fails lately?


  1. drunken beans!
    pintos cooked with beer (hence drunken), onion, garlic, fire-roasted tomatoes, cumin, chipotle.
    i like it served over coriander rice with a topping of tomatillo cilantro chutney.

  2. mostly win. tonight i made breakfast for supper. yummy! oatmeal, apple, yogurt (and walnuts for me) pancakes. by the time i got to the third one, i finally had the cooking and flipping technique down. :) with so much stuff in them, it was quite difficult!

  3. win: crepes. crab rangoon. (both i want to make for you!)
    fail: the lentil soup i asked you so much about the other week...they never softened! what did i do wrong?!
