my first successful cookie experience!
About this Cook
Mid-20s female living in the frigid north that is Rochester, NY. Born and raised in North Carolina.
My favorite things to cook
I love tasty but surprisingly simple recipes. I love it when I take stuff to work and everyone raves about what I made...but really it was just extremely easy.
My cooking triumphs
I FINALLY made decent cookies from scratch!
My cooking tragedies

Ham and Pineapple Kabobs
Made this for about 10 people while camping. I made a much bigger batch than the recipe calls for, and they all got eaten, though by the end people were starting to slow down a little. At first though, people couldn't get enough of them! I marinated the ham and pineapple pieces all day, and then put the kabobs together right before grilling. I also added just a bit of worcestershire suace and maybe half a clove of garlic finely minced. I also substituted cranberry mustard for some of the regular. Yummy!

Beautiful Salad
I'm normally not a big salad eater. Even though I like spinach salads way more than regular (i hate lettuce) i still usually have to force them down. But this salad was GREAT! I made a couple of changes based on personal taste. First, I used the Sugar Coated Pecans recipe from this site for the nuts. I am not a big onion fan, so I diced the onion. After a while it smelled way too oniony, so I pulled most of the pieces back out. It still had a good onion flavor without the pieces of onion. Next time I think I'll mince up just a little bit of onion, and then just let the salad sit with one huge piece in it (and then pull that piece out), just to give it the flavor. I used goat cheese because that was what I had on hand. I used the "balsamic breeze" salad dressing spray. It's lower in calories and keeps you from drowning the salad. WONDERFUL!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV
These cookies came out wonderfully! And I am very very bad at baking cookies. Thanks for the suggestions on pulling them out as soon as the edges turn golden. Also, definitely make sure your butter is not melted, but rather just room temperature. I also put the dough in the fridge between batches. I used an airbake pan with a silpat on top.
