Cajun Style Blackened Snapper
It's a very quick and easy recipe. Be sure to use lots of butter! I did 3 mins on one side and 2 on the other. 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper is way too spicy for me, so for 2 pieces of fish I used 1/3 tsp.

Almond Shortbread I
Great recipe! I used only 2 cups of flour, and rolled the dough into two logs 1 1/2 inch in diameter, popped them in the freezer for an hour and sliced them into 1/2 inch thick cookies. Baked for 30 mins.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence
this is a good marinade. i wouldn't say it's extraordinary. i marinated two rib eye steaks for about 24 hours. they were definitely good, but between marinading for 24 hours and throwing some montreal steak spice and worcestershire an hour before cooking - not that crazy of a difference. if you're using an excellent cut of meat is a lot more important.
