Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
My nine-year-old niece announced her desire to make cookies "all by herself" today. Once she decided on which kind of cookies she wanted to make, we settled on this recipe. Following the advice of another reviewer, we slightly decreased the amount of white sugar and increased the amount of coconut and then added a generous helping of cinnamon to the mix. We followed the rest of the directions exactly. They came out fabulously well and made a little girl feel very pleased with herself. I was intrigued by the crisped rice cereal and it turned out to be surprisingly good ingredient; as others mentioned, it adds a decidedly nutty flavour. My advice would be to stick with the less sugar/more coconut thing and definitely add cinnamon if you're into it. I can also see almonds or pecans working with this recipe as well. This is a keeper recipe. I printed it out and my nice carefully added the changes to the printout and put it away for safekeeping. She wants to make another batch to take to school an share with all her friends. Quick, easy, yummy. Nice!

Grilled Garlic Artichokes

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I modified the recipe just a bit by adding lemon juice to the boiling water, and instead of just salt and pepper I used a homemade Cajun seasoning spice blend in the oil and lemon mixture, then added to that a little bit of the water the artichokes were boiled in. Basted it constantly while grilling, turning often, and it came out beautifully and very, very delicious. This is a keeper and an instant favourite. Homemade Cajun spice blend (can be used on MANY different kinds of dishes): Roughly equal amounts of black pepper, onion, garlic, and chili powders. Half measures thyme, basil. Double measure cayenne pepper. Blend well until uniform color. Increase volume by about 1/3 with salt, and mix thoroughly (do not reblend). I like sea salt or kosher salt because it's crunchy, but any salt will do. Use as you would any seasoned salt.
