White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies II
I didn't change a thing on this recipe and it was one of the best cookies I've ever had. I am DEFINITELY going to keep this and make it again and again.

New Jersey Diner Salad
actually i didn't find this to be bland at all. i substituted red wine vinegar (that was all i had) and cut the amounts down, as i only needed about half this recipe, but my husband and i really loved it. used it as a topping for grilled brats. great recipe. :)

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting
this is probably the perfect buttercream - i've used it over and over again in all of my cakes and i love that it's not cloyingly sweet or hard to handle. this was a fabulous recipe, rick :)
