Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2014
I made this with butter. Came out great! I also added 1/8 tsp. ground cloves and 1/4 cup chopped candied ginger. I think the candied ginger made the difference and made the cookies have more ginger "zing." Definitely a winner. Lovely crisp cookies.

Curried Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I make a version of this soup using butter and one large tablespoon of vindaloo or hot curry paste. It makes a very spicy cold soup, lovely in the summer. After sauteeing the onions in the butter, add the chopped zucchini and only enough chicken stock to cover. Cook until the zucchini is very soft. Then puree and add about 2 cups of buttermilk. This makes a creamy but low-fat summer soup. Serve chilled.

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Excellent directions for handling the rice wrappers. I filled them with shredded Chinese cabbage and finely sliced shrimp, jalapenos, scallion, carrots, peppers, and alfalfa sprouts, cilantro and mint. Made a tasty dipping sauce with juice of one lime mixed with Hoisin sauce. They were a big hit with my dinner guests. This is an interesting substitute for a salad course.
