Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
This is my "go to" shortbread recipe for the holidays. There isn't a crumb left whenever I bring a plate in to work. The brown sugar makes for a deep, rich flavor. I cut the amount of flour down to 4 cups. I use whatever real butter I have in the house - unsalted yields a more delicate flavor. I spray a 9x13" glass pan with non-stick baking spray. Then I prepare the dough as directed (using softened butter), pat it into the pan with my fingers, and prick the top with a fork (shortbread releases steam as it bakes). My tip: sprinkle the top with white sugar before baking (slightly caramelizes for a nice little crunch!). Then bake as directed. While still warm from the oven, I slice the shortbread into about 30 fingers with a very sharp knife. Then I place the pan on a wire rack and cool completely. Break up & store in an airtight container.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
Excellent recipe. Added an extra 1/2-cup of chocolate chips. Made sure to beat the butter and sugar for about 4 minutes with a hand mixer so it was extra light and fluffy. Chilled the dough overnight for ease in scooping. Will definitely make again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
These were a huge hit at work. Added 1 tsp of salt to offset all that sweetness - really enhances the flavor. Added another 1/2-bag of chocolate chips (2-1/2 12-ounce bags total). Very important to beat the butter and sugars until very fluffy, about 4-5 minutes with a hand mixer. Made for a light, almost whipped batter. Definitely recommend chilling the batter and keeping it chilled between batches. A cookie scoop helps a lot. Also, drop the dough onto a cold cookie sheet to reduce spreading(alternate between 2 sheets).

Quick and Easy Chicken and Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Super easy - turned out great. Makes a LOT ... it's just me & my husband, so I'm going to freeze half for later. Followed recipe pretty closely, but added 2 small cans of tomato sauce, chopped garlic, and a 16-oz package of rotini pasta instead of angel hair. Will definitely make again.

Eh, I was not impressed. Flavors didn't appreciably improve after aging for nearly 2 weeks. Pretty much a waste of ingredients.
