Blender Hollandaise Sauce
I gave this 4 stars because it's a wonderful base recipe. I did change it to suit my taste: 5 egg yolks, dash Sriracha, 1/4 tsp dried tarragon, dash black pepper. I kept the mustard. I used 3/4 T fresh lemon juice. For those feeling unsafe about uncooked eggs -- to kill salmonella, eggs have to reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit, until both yolk and white are firm. The blender method is no less unsafe than making hollandaise sauce the water-bath way; neither will kill salmonella.

Cinnamon Rolls III
The texture of these rolls is excellent, but I miss the bite that my sourdough cinnamon rolls have. These seemed rather bland. I'm going to try to adapt this recipe to my sourdough one. I very much appreciated Marianne's instructions for non-bread machine dough. BTW, I use 2 teaspoons of orange juice concentrate in my icing rather than vanilla, for extra taste.

Fennel Cucumber Salsa
Surprisingly good. I added in a little tomatillo-jalepeno sauce my husband whipped up for something else, just to give it a little bite. Also a finely diced beet for color. We used it in a burrito and also in salad, and it added both flavor and crunch. I'm making it to hand out to friends. Didn't have avocados and didn't miss them. Not something I'd eat tons of, but definitely fun and different and tasty, and very easy. Nice change-of-pace and party dish.
