Almond Chocolate Coconut Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2002
Wow- who cares if they aren't exactly like an Almond Joy candy bar, they're fabulous!?! BTW, how big WERE the cookies you made? I halved the recipe and made 42 very good sized cookies- also had to cook them for 10-13 minutes instead of the 8-10. Bravo, I think I'm going to have to lock them up so my husband won't eat them all!

Cuban Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2002
GREAT RECIPE! My husband I have enjoyed this a few times now, and I am making it for my brother tonight. He is not a big fan of trying new things, but I am sure he will like this. We serve the pork taco-style with all the trimmings, and use our pressure cooker to speed up the cooking time (takes about 15-20 minutes), and the meat comes out so tender! Thanks for the great idea!

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2002
A good basic starting recipe. I changed it quite a bit... used butter instead of margarine, added about 2 tsp. of thyme at the end, and used 1/4 cup of sherry and 1/4 cup of port in place of the wine, as well as provolone instead of swiss (the swiss would have been better, I think, or gruyere). Also added 3 cloves of thinly sliced elephant garlic about 1/2 way through cooking the onions. The trick is to cook the onions sloooowly, on a med/ med-low heat. The soup was fantastic, not too salty like many I have had before, and was delicious with a fresh green salad.
