Italian Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
The first time I had these were on an Easter mornings. The dough was rolled into ropes which were formed into a circle that held an egg...sometimes dyed...and smaller ropes formed a cross over it. They were iced and sprinkled with the colored tiny sprinkles. To this day I only use the very tiny colored sprinkles! The adults had the plain cookies, I think,but we kids focused on the huge ones....imagine...cookies for breakfast! My kids grew up on the cookies, we make them into balls, or crossed ribbons, square knots for scouts, wreaths at Christmas, we have even braided them if the kids had the patience. Once the dough is kneaded it is easy to manipulate. We usually use anise but lemon and almond work too. I find that people who aren't used to anise prefer the vanilla...or I'd sneak in anise 50/50. And...if you use anise they are better the next day when it gets ripened a bit...put them in a cookie tin. They keep amazingly well and freeze beautifully!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
This is pretty much the smoothie we make but I use Greek yogurt...just as non-fat but higher protein. If you are curbing calories protein is a must. I also use FF Smart Balance milk for more protein than regular. And no sugar or hoeny isnecessary if you use the fruited yogurt.
