London Broil from Gourmet Magazine

For marinade
5 large garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey

A 1 1/2 pound top-round London broil (about 1 1/4 inches thick)
Accompaniment: Sliced vine-ripened tomatoes
Make marinade: Mince and mash garlic to a paste with salt and in a blender blend with remaining marinade ingredients.
In a heavy-duty sealable plastic bag combine London broil with marinade. Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and put in a shallow baking dish. Marinate steak, chilled, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours and up to 24.
Prepare grill.
Bring steak to room temperature (which should take about 1 hour) before grilling. Remove steak from marinade, letting excess drip off, and grill on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 7 to 9 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes.

Holding a knife at 45% angle, cut steak across grain into thin slices and serve with tomatoes.

Gingerbread Muffins Like Jason's Deli

1 c

From  I frosted them and the kids and their friends loved them!

dark brown sugar
2 1/2 cflour
1 1/2 tspbaking soda
1 tspcinnamon
1 tspground ginger
1/2 tspsalt
1/4 tspnutmeg
1/2 cmolasses
1 cbuttermilk**
1/2 cunsalted butter, melted


 Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray/butter muffin tins.
 Combine sugar, flour, soda, salt and spices in a bowl.
 In a separate bowl mix the egg, molasses, milk, and butter.
 Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just blended.
 Add to muffin tins** (about 3/4 full, these muffins don’t rise too much, so you don’t have to worry about them overflowing) and bake for 15 minutes. If making normal sized muffins, it’ll be more like 20 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
 **If you don’t have buttermilk (I almost never do), just add 1 tbsp. of white vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of regular milk and let sit out for about 10 minutes.**
