Big Soft Ginger Cookies
The flavor was exactly what i was hoping for. However, halfway through baking these, i realized i forgot to use oj, as some readers had suggested! oh well, next time! i made these for a holiday cookie exchange, so i rolled them in homemade colored sugar. why did the red ones rise perfectly and the green ones stay flat and greasy? they both came from the exact same dough that was chilled between batches. So strange! Any thoughts?

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
wow. i may never make tacos the same way again! i added 1/2 c fresh cilantro in place of the oregano (as many suggested) and added 1/8 tsp chili powder for kick (i was cooking for two, so you can measure it to taste). this is my new favorite staple! thanks for sharing!

omg, really good. i love the smooth and creamy texture. i also opted to make it on the stove, i dont trust microwaves. i skipped the double boiler and just melted the butter and milk together over medium heat, added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and then turned the heat to low and melted the chips in. when the mixture is almost melted, turn off the heat and add walnuts. soooo good!!!
