The Best Chicken Salad Ever
Made this a day ahead to bring to today's 4th of July potluck picnic. Letting the flavors meld overnight meant the onions came on a bit strong. One girl at the potluck said this was the BEST chicken salad she's ever eaten and she thought she didn't like chicken salad until today. I liked it too although it bothered me that the texture was a bit like a tunafish salad and in fact, with the strong onion taste, it was easy to miss the chicken taste and think the dish was actually a tuna fish salad.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
With the following MODIFICATIONS, these cookies were the BEST!! In addition to the complete recipe with walnuts, choc chips, baking soda, etc. I added 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup more flour, 1/3 cup shredded sweetened coconut, 2 Tbsp more white sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Sifted the dry ingredients. Pulsed 2 cups of the 3 cups of oatmeal in the food processor for about 4 seconds. This gave it a slightly finer, more traditional texture but it was still chewy and delicious.

Beef Bourguignon II
Delicious! Used one can beef broth and the rest merlot. Next time I'll try with a different cut of beef besides "stew meat". My husband thought it was stringy tasting although tender. Both loved the flavor. Had it over rotini noodles. We both wanted more vegetables and sauce with it... will work on that. Will add potatoes as well next time. Also added half a can of evaporated milk at the end because my husband likes things creamy. I would have been happy without it but we both thought it was better with the milk. I did not put in the canned onions, didn't feel like I was missing anything but next time I'll buy it to be complete.
