Spaghetti Squash II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I always make my squash sorta like this. It doesn't matter what kind of squash. Well, that's not entirely true. I don't cook summer squash like this. That I usually grill. But for winter squash, I love the comforting flavors of the spices. I don't use butter, but olive oil for a healthier alternative. I also add a touch of garlic powder since my family loves garlic on everything. I usually don't use molasses, but brown sugar instead. I never use just cinnamon for the spice. I usually use pumpkin pie spice. If I don't have any, I make my own. Sometimes I just use nutmeg. Delish. Reminds me so much of the holidays. When I make spaghetti squash, I pre bake the squash with the cut side down on a silpat lined cooking sheet with nothing on it. The flavoring will come later, let it cool so I can fork it and get all the stringy meat out. I let that cool. At dinner time, I then use the oil to sautee the squash with all the other things I want to put in it. Tonight, I am going to add some dried soaked currents and cranberries for texture.

Mexican Wedding Cakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I used to buy these cookies at a local department store bakery. When I got married three years ago, I knew I wanted these cookies. When I went to buy them, the store had gone out of business. With this recipe, I got the cookie I remembered, I was able to make enough for 100 guests the night before my wedding, they are so easy. I now make them when I bake my christmas cookies every year, and they still get the most compliments. Every one loves the "melt in your mouth" texture. I like to drizzle them in a little chocolate after I roll them in powdered sugar, as a finishing touch.
