Anyone have a good recipe for some sort of cinnamon streusel swirly coffee cake type muffins?
I made Mapo Tofu last night! It isn't even close to authentic, but it tasted pretty good, anyway. I think I screwed something up and made too much sauce, or didn't use enough cornstarch or something. It was quite saucy.

So, my boyfriend and I are planning on getting out of the city for Valentine's Day to spend the weekend in front of a fire and under the stars, camping. I was wondering if any of you had some ideas for food beyond hotdogs and hamburgers. Obviously, it has to be fairly easy and not require many pieces parts, but I think we'd be up to a small challenge. My boyfriend is a pretty serious outdoorsy type, so he owns cookware and a small camping stove.
I know I have seen this dish on my favorite Indian restaurant's menu, but I can't for the life of me remember what the name is - so I am guessing Saag Chole? Someone help me out here. Anyway, it was yummy. :) All I did was take my favorite recipe for Chana Masala and - are you ready for this? - added spinach. Now, what you're seeing at the top of my plate might look like delicious, authentic naan or roti (or maybe not), but don't be fooled! That, my friend, is a whole wheat pita slathered with margarine. There's some lovely jasmine rice there on the plate, too (the boil-in-bag kind, haha). It's so very inauthentic and ridiculously easy, but wow, it's pretty. At least, I think so. :)
The original recipe for chana masala is here -> http://vegweb.com/recipes/ethnic/indian3.shtml
To make you own lazy naan or roti, use either white or whole wheat pita bread respectively, grease it up, and toast it.
