Lamb and Winter Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
I like this recipe alot, although I found it was verbatim from my Soups and Stews book from Williams Sonoma. I used lamb shoulder since my market did not have lamb cubed for stewing. I would reduce the cook time to about 25 min because alot of the squash/potato got a bit too soft. I also served it over rice to use up all the excellent goopiness it makes! Everyone thought it was great.

Pecan Lace Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This recipe is good but you must be prepared to experiment with your oven temperature a little. I found cooling the entire mixture and rolling the dough into small balls gave the best result. I also used a convection oven and just lowered the temp to 325 which gave a more even tone to the cookie. Don't let them get too brown on the edges or they may be slightly bitter. Use parchment paper. If you are cheap you can wipe off the parchment paper a few times with a paper towel or reuse. Also be wary of spreading. If you cool it completely they spread a little less and you can get about 8 cookies on a standard cookie sheet without them touching. Great simple recipe. With small cookies I was actually able to make about 100 cookies.
