Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash
This is excellent. I added chicken breast and substituted red onion for celery and multigrain rice for couscous based on what I had in the house. Yummy!

Easy Lemon Cake Cookies with Icing
These were okay. I was hoping they would be similar to Maggiano's lemon cookies but the middles were chewy/doughy after even 10 minutes of baking. Perhaps you need to press them down flat before baking instead of "dropping by rounded teaspoons"???? I also had to double the milk in the icing.

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans
OMG, this is my new favorite green been recipe! I have been making it quite often. The sauce would be good on other vegetables or fish too.
