Passover Komish
A gentile with a professional cooking degree in culinary including pastry, I just made these "cookies". The result is so awful and runny there is no possible way to roll the "dough" up---it is batter. Oy vey. I suggest adding lots more potato flour and matzoh meal and sugar---then you have a dough. Problem is though, once you roll the results up and bake them you end up with a brittle exceeding fragile product. I managed to cut some into bars and sugar them as directed. Probably could have used another egg to bind since I had to add so many dry ingredients to yield anything workable.

Champagne Punch III
I made this punch for my friend Susu's New Year's Eve Party in New York. I used three bottles of bubbly rather than two, made sure the white wine was a reisling and i also added about 1/4 cup of superfine sugar as my tasters found the punch to be intially a little bitter. Everyone loved the punch without exception. After three glasses of it I was flying and the green and red illuminated Empire State Building looming out of the living room window nicely complemented this luscious and sassy punch. Well done Debbie!

Coconut Poke Cake
I have to admit it. The cake is pretty good. I saw the recipe and thought oh my god this looks disgusting and "white trash". But I was intrigued that the recipe recieved such high reviews and so many; so I assumed it had a cult following and I was quickly seduced -- finding myself in my local grocery store searching for the ridiculous ingredients. I made the cake and yes I have to admit again-- it is delicious and very light. It is much much better than I would have thought and it does not have that coconut tanning product taste that I find offensive. In any event, the cake, while perverse in its cult status (you should see how weird it looks in my icebox), is a winner. I altered the recipe slightly by pouring a snifter of armagnac over the top before icing it. I also used Betty Crocker yellow cake mix rather than white. GO HOME AND MAKE THIS CAKE NOW AND JOIN THE COCONUT POKE CAKE CULT.
