Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
Everybody is saying how their dough was too sticky, but I didn't have a problem with it. I used canola oil instead of margarine, so maybe that made a difference. Other alterations: I cut down on the cloves to 3/4 tsp, used 1/4 tsp salt, and I used 1/2 tsp ginger with a lot of freshly grated ginger too(maybe I'll use even more fresh ginger next time). I don't like very sweet things, so maybe next time I'll cut down on the sugar a bit. I expected to decorate them, but I liked them so much that I just left them plain. Eight minutes bake time left them crispy on the outside and slightly chewy in the middle. I didn't expect to like them as much as I did, and I would make them again.

Luscious Lemon Snaps
I'm giving 5 stars for my variation of this recipe. I cut down the sugar to 3/4 Cup, I didn't add salt, and I used a heaping 1/4 Cup of canola oil. I needed extra moisture since I cut down so drastically on the oil, so I added water as needed to make a sticky dough. At first these seemed too lemony, but the next day they were absolutely delicious. Try them with a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream. My husband and I were amazed at how great these were, and we couldn't stop eating them.

Middle Eastern White Beans
This was a simple and tasty bean dish. I didn't have pimentos, but I will try to use them next time I make this. I think I'm going to add this to my dinner rotation. It reminded me of the fassoulia plaki that I've had at an Armenian restaurant. Very nice!
