Cranberry Orange Cookies
A very nice, light alternative to all the heavy iced sugar and chocolate cookies at the holidays! Went over very well with both genders and various ages. I followed this pretty much exactly, except that I added a little extra orange zest to the batter (1 1/2 tsp) and added a little more flour (1/4 cup) as some reviews advised. I also used fresh cranberries, pulsed in the food processor, and about a tsp of vanilla. DO NOT add more flour if you're not at a high altitude. Yes, the batter will look a little greasy, but it'll be fine. More flour makes it taste, well, floury. They're right about overcooking, though. This is a light cookie, almost cake-like. As soon as the edges turn brown, take them out. Also, if you really want 4 dozen cookies out of this, forget "rounded tablespoon" size. Try a big rounded teaspoon - about walnut size. They cook better and more evenly and they're still plenty big. I didn't do the frosting, but might next time. I don't like super-sweet cookies, but these aren't anywhere near super-sweet. They're tangy and light and very good.

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks
Excellent! Other than cutting the salt (a sprinkle per steak is plenty), the recipe is perfect as written, including the cooking time. 90 sec per side in med-high heat is plenty - just let it rest a couple of minutes before serving. It'll keep cooking on the inside.

Shrimp Scampi
followed other reviewers' recs to cut the wine to 1/2 c, added 1/4 c lemon juice, threw in a little extra garlic - it's a good, solid dish, but it's still missing something I can't put my finger on.
