Asian Chicken Salad
This is awesome! I even had my neighbor's children over, who have lots of likes and dislikes but it was a hit for both adults and 6 children. Try to top that! I didn't have rice vinegar on hand so I just used regular vinegar, a ratio of 2/3 vinegar with 1/2 water to make it milder flavor. Also used romaine, red cabbage, celery, carrots, bell pepper, the chow mein noodles and sliced almonds. Grilled some bonelss chicken thighs with ginger and garlic, then cut up the chicken and threw it all together. My daughter added the touch of eating it all with chop sticks. Couldn't have asked for a better Asian Salad.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
We've made this recipe 5 or 6 times now and everybody loves it. We do use butter instead of shortening/margarine and we added the vanilla and a bit more peanut butter. Just for fun, we split the dough and add heath bar bits to one half. Either way, everybody gobbles them up. We do have a convection oven and I measure out 1/2 teaspon (rounded) and bake for 7 minutes and they come out perfectly soft and a little golden.
