Coconut Gumdrop Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
These cookies are delicious! I used dark brown sugar, lessened the baking powder and soda to 3/4 teaspoon each, left out the salt (my husband has to restrict his sodium), and added 1/2 teaspoon coconut flavoring. I used crystallized ginger instead of gumdrops, and cut it up into tiny pieces, using about 1/2 cup. The ginger really compliments the coconut and pecans. Excellent cookies!

Shrimp and Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This is my first time making this recipe, having just discovered quinoa and its amazing nutritional benefits. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but added 2 cloves minced garlic, doubled the mushrooms and asparagus, omitted the salt, and halved the olive oil. I also used vegetable broth for the quinoa. I loved it, but my husband thought it needed more heat. He suggested some Thai style chili sauce , an excellent addition. Next time I make this I will saute a chopped jalapeno with the onion and green pepper for more heat. I will definitely be making this again.
