Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I liked the basic flavor profile of this recipe - sweet, savory and salty. I made the dressing according to the directions, but I found it a bland and sweet. It definitely needed more acid so I added additional balsamic vinegar. For extra flavor, I upped the amount of mustard and added a couple cloves of pasted garlic (garlic and kosher salt mashed with a pestle). I liked the final dressing result much better. I would make this recipe again but with the above modifications plus a possible reduction in the amount of sugar, depending on the sweetness of my orange juice (I used fresh squeezed navel orange juice).

Lemon Meltaways

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
These are my all-time favorite cookie and I've probably made 30+ batches of them over the years, always to rave reviews and requests for the recipe (which I forgot today so I'm on the site printing a copy). I do make a few minor recipe modifications. Ingredients: use FRESH lemon juice and up the amount of lemon zest in the dough. This provides extra lemon flavor. The icing also requires 1 Tablespoon of FRESH lemon juice (and more zest) and some additional confectioners’ sugar to obtain the right consistency / taste. How much additional will vary based on the humidity in the air, but start with 2 additional tablespoons and go from there. (I made these yesterday while it was pouring rain and it required 4+ additional tablespoons) Technique: For the dough, beat the butter very well by itself before adding the additional ingredients. The cookies are extremely delicate when hot but firm up nicely as they cool. I leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving to the cooling rack and have no problems with crumbling. It should be noted that these cookies will not brown as most cookies do - if you wait for browning, the cookies will be overcooked / burnt. For easier transporting, frost cookies and leave on the cooling rack overnight. The icing firms up and you can pack them with wax paper between layers.
