BBB14: Cinnamon-swirl bread

This one is not in the BBB Fresh Blends Cookbook, but the dough was mixed in the blender and it was so delicious that I felt the world needed to know.  Rating: 10

BBB13: Soft pretzels

Whether dusted with salt or covered in cinnamon and sugar, these are a must.  Mix dough in the BB, roll it out, shape the pretzels, boil in water with baking soda, and bake.  Not as complicated as it may sound.  Rating: 9.5

BBB12: Potstickers (鍋貼)

Not technically part of the Blendtec "Fresh Blends" Cookbook, these were made in the Blendtec.  And they were very tasty, especially dipped in soy sauce, rice vinegar, and hot sauce.  Rating: 7

BBB11: Curry butternut squash soup

Do not attempt this at home.  100% creativity, 0% good-flavor-combination.  I tried to improve on the butternut squash recipe (BBB3).  Epic fail.  Rating: 2

BBB10: Breakfast sausages and lemon curd pancakes

Breakfast sausages: With extra sage and thyme, this is a keeper.  Next time, add fennel.  Rating: 7.5

Lemon curd pancakes: A bit dry and puffy, but that extra zing of lemon is worth the effort of pressing a button on a blender.  Rating: 6.5

BBB9: Baba ganoush

Delightful, smooth, and creamy.  It's a good way to consume eggplant.  Rating: 7

BBB8: Peanut butter brownies

Warning: This had two full sticks of butter in it and still came out dry like a dog's treat.  Even with chocolate chips on top, it's more like biscotti than brownie.  Rating: 4
