Butterscotch Lace Cookies
My mother made these starting in the 1960s and I loved them; she rolled them on the handle of a wooden spoon to make horns and I thought that was wonderful! I just made them with my grandchildren, easy and we got 6 dozen. I didn't change a thing.

Mexican Pot Roast
Delicious recipe, not overly hot but with a lovely warmth but I DID modify it for reason. We love pork so I used boneless country pork spare ribs and wanting to limit salt, used that very lightly and then sprinkled with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime before browning. During browning, kind of as an after-thought, I added some Mrs. Dash Southwestern Chipotle. Very coarsely chopped the onion into narrow wedges, used roasted Hatch green chiles I had on hand, coarsely chopped and removed some/most of the seeds. I did not use taco seasoning, having used the aforementioned seasoning but did use a bit more chili powder. I used about 1/2 as much hot sauce for approx. 3 lbs of pork and used minced garlic since I never use garlic powder. I also sprinkled everything with about 3 T. of lime juice and, because it was sitting overnight before the actual cooking, added maybe 1/4 c water to the crock. The next morning, I set it out of the refrigerator about an hour before inserting it in the cooking unit and cooked it on High for 4.5 hours...smaller amount of a different type/cut of meat. It came out perfectly tender with just the right amount of cooking liquid; glad I added the additional liquid as I fear the pork may have been dry otherwise. My son who is a great cook and loves green chiles thoroughly, thought this was delicious, I shared the recipe and I'm sure both of us will make this again. And I will try it with beef.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew
For full flavor, you must use chorizo and I used a little more; did not use the canola oil, just cooking spray and used some green bell with the red to add color and for the hot pepper used 1 serrano and a very small home-grown poblano that had some heat. I also added a little more salt, black pepper to taste and about 3/4-1 tsp cumin and a spice blend called Magic Dust. Noting another reviewer's comment, I also opted for frozen mango. This is a very flavorful stew that I liked a lot!
