Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
This is a really good salad! I needed a pasta dish for a potluck and I wanted something unique so I thought I would try this. I made 2 changes though: First, I added a bit of sugar, probably 2 tsps to the dressing as mine tasted quite bitter, (Whether this is due to the fact that I had a bitter vinegar, or don't like too tangy of dressings I'm not certain.) Second, I substituted sunflower seeds for the pine nuts. I had trouble finding the pine nuts in the store, and I knew when I found them they would cost more than I would want, so when I saw the sunflower seeds, I made a snap decision. Altogether a yummy (and pretty!) salad. Next time I'm gonna add sun dried tomatoes...

Hockey Pucks

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I've been making these with my grandmother every Christmas since I was old enough to hold a fork. The only difference is that we would put peanut butter on one Ritz cracker, then marshmallow fluff on the other. We make and dip these and buckeyes at the same time, since the chocolate is already melted... Wouldn't be Christmas without them.
