Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II
I'm crazy about this recipe . . . however!! I've made it 2 times and the cookie has come out different both times. // The first time the "batter" was more grainy, like moist sand. It still formed into a ball, but after baking the cookie was sturdy but gritty from the sugar -- still tasted great. // The second time I beat the sugar and butter longer, and then beat in the remaining dry ingredients longer until it became more like soft clay. After baking the cookie was not as sturdy, but more cake-like and fell apart when lifting it from the cookie sheet. Additionally, the frosting the second time around spread more than the first time...don't understand that. //// I'll continue to make this cookie until I nail it down simply because I loved making them, sharing them, and eating them. ////// Attention Jamie Langston: if you're out there I'd welcome your insight as to what I've done wrong!!

Spaghetti Torte
I really liked this recipe; I added mushrooms, pine nuts, garlic salt, and would have added onions, olives and capers if I had them on hand. When I reheated it the next day, I added Paul Newman’s sauce to it -- that was gooooooood!!!!! For me, it will probably become an "everything-in-but-the-kitchen-sink" recipe, which I love making! However, I was unable to fit one pound of spaghetti into a 9 (or even 10) inch springform pan (even if I had smashed it down really hard, it still would have been above the pan’s edge; I ended up using an aluminum casserole-sized, 9-1/4w x 4d pan). Also, it didn’t bind together as well as I expected it to, based on the description; next time I’ll leave the yokes in and maybe even add another egg. I’m open to suggestions as to what I did wrong. Regardless, I’ll make it again, and next time I’ll try angel hair pasta or tri-colored rotini, as well as the kitchen sink!!!
