The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Was it me or did these cookies taste like baking powder? a chemical taste that you just don't want in your cookies. and sticky to roll? Yes! On the plus side -- nice texture and requires few ingredients, all of which you probably have on hand (why I chose them) but you better ice these! I even added chocolate chips after the first batch baked and they still had an off taste. I bake a lot and have tried a multitude of cookie recipes over the years so I suggest sticking to a different recipe, like a shortbread that can much more easily be rolled and cut will will probably taste better (sorry, just my opinion ... these were ravely reviewed by many other users). ** a roll and cut cookie dough tip: always, always refrigerate dough overnight then re-chill on trays after cutting and prior to baking. Happy Baking!

Quick Fried Rice
I had leftover peas and carrots and needed a quick recipe using on-hand ingredients. This was easy and inexpensive. I agreed with many other reviewers that it was lacking in flavor but I also didn't add much soy sauce while cooking. Because I anticipated "blandness" I cooked the rice in chicken broth instead of water so this probably helped. I was tempted to give it a 5 because my often picky toddler LOVED it!! A quiet, struggle-free meal is worth every effort in the kitchen. Thank you!! We'll keep this in the rotation for sure!

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili
We loved this!! This is my new favorite chili. The only alterations I made were leaving out the chilis and using leftover pureed butternut squash instead of cubed squash (much easier this way, too). This gave the chili a nice thick and smooth consistency. This was my first time using hominy; I really liked it. We'll definitely be making this again very soon.
