Thank You so much for sharing this recipe! I've tried numerous cookie recipes in the past and this one trumps them all! I've ben looking for years for a recipe akin to Mrs. Fields Cookies..and this one came the closest! Delicious..won't change a thing! This is my new staple cookie!

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
Caramel Shortbread or "Millionaire's shortbread' as it's also known as can be finicky to make, but only because although it is a very simple recipe it takes a lot more time than specified. This is the only reason why I didn't give this recipe 5 stars. It's so important for each layer to be chilled (I learned this lesson when making nanaimo bars for Canada day) - refrigerate or chill for at least 20 minutes, and wait until each layer is just about ready before preparing the next layer - or else spooning the mixture is a bit of a nuisance as it sticks to utensils and hardens very fast. I used my hands to pick at the dough (as you would with apple crumble - but before it gets to a breadcrumb texture) to ensure that the dough was of the right consistency. Shortbread is traditionally 1 part sugar, 2 parts butter, and 3 parts flour and this recipe catered very well to that. I didn't have corn syrup so I substituted golden syrup instead, and I used semi-sweet chocolate with a double boiler mostly out of habit - I find it gives you more control. I also used a 9x13inch pan as I don't like my layers too thick, which I floured in advance. The husband and I gorged on these, thank you so much for sharing!!!

Raisin Rice Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
What a terrific recipe! Very easy to prepare and added an exotic touch to a simple night at home. My husband and I loved it! I would not recommend substituting the turmeric however -- Turmeric is a subtle but distinct flavour and it really went a long way in authenticating this dish. I seasoned the chicken with more than just pepper however. A bit of pepper, oregon, basil and especially paprika on and under the skin gave the chicken that tiny extra boost.
