Thai Coconut and Cocoa Macaroons
Just awesome. It took me a couple tries to get it right--looking up a tutorial on how to make macaroons properly really helped. I also found that I had to shop the bulk aisle in my Whole Foods to find coconut that was not sweetened. Now these are part of my regular cookie arsenal, and really add some variety to it.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini
This recipe has a magical Something that makes it become much more than the sum of its parts. I double everything except the butter and shrimp (I have a tendency to reduce the amount of butter in anything I cook, so that may not be for everyone.) I brought some to my parents' house, and a few hours later my mother called and said "I NEED that recipe!!". Five stars. Easy and delicious AND classy.
