Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Great for fluffy old fashioned pancakes! I melted the butter over very low heat in the cast iron pan I planned to cook in - saves a dish, and just gently wiped up the pan so it wouldn't be swimming in butter when it was time to cook. I refridgerated the leftover batter since I was just cooking for myself. It kept quite well overnight, but thickened up a bit so I spread it quickly in the hot pan with the back of a spoon. If you use this method to make a heart shape with the initial "plop" and then spread the top of the pancake around to make a circle, you come out with beautiful hearts in your pancakes of a different variety than you'd get with warmer batter.

Creamy Rice Pudding
I beat the egg together with some of the reserved milk before adding it to the cooked rice mixture - if you're worried about your egg cooking in lumps, this kind of step might help. I omitted the raisins simply because I didn't have any on hand, but next time I'll use them. I seasoned with a tiny bit of nutmeg and cinnamon - delicious. I was really impressed with the creaminess of this recipe and was happy that it didn't taste too "eggy." 5 stars! Using brown rice (when this recipe clearly calls for white) is a little ridiculous. They are very different grains. Besides, if you're substituting for health ... ain't going to do much good given all the milk/butter/sugar in here anyway. Might as well try a different dessert.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies
Wonderful! I've made these twice now, and can't wait to try them again. The first time I made them using all crisco shortening, the second time around, I used 1/2c butter and 1/4 cup shortening. I prefer the butter/shortening combo just because the texture ends up a little crispier and chewier, at least in my experience. These cookies were really beautiful and easy - everyone that tried them liked them, even people who aren't big ginger fans.
