Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Wow! The flavor is fantastic; these are my favorite cookies ever. Texture: Soft without being chewy Taste: Vibrant Ginger I used Ginger paste as I did not have fresh ginger, and black-strap molasses (a little less than I would have of normal molasses). A little more spices than the recipe says. I think it is probably a fairly versatile recipe, but it is very very easy to make and just absolutely amazingly wonderfully fantastic.

Cashew Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Great cookies. Unique. Won't find like them anywhere else. 30 minutes after baking is *not* the right time to taste them. The frosting and the cookie combine for great flavor the next morning or later. Delicious delicious frosting. I did a double batch of the cookies and frosting. Batch 1: As the recipe said. Seemed too cakeish right away but turned out *wonderfully* in the morning. Very good combined with frosting. Batch 2: I folded in some chunky Peanut butter (all natural, no extra sugar, about 1/3 cup) and some JIF (1/3 cup, some extra sugar). These are more crumbly than the first but still delicious. GENERAL: Use double vanilla. Much better. Half sugar on the frosting. Let cool till next morning. Then try for best effect. If you want perfection that evening, try another recipe; these are best if they sit for a while. Very addictive once complete. FROSTING: Browning the butter on high is possible and faster. Just don't assume it's not browning cause you can't immediately see the color. The trick is let it boil but stir fast (2 minutes). Then let cool. I only used half the sugar. I can't imagine using more. It was plenty sweet and a perfect blend with the cookie. I am going to try the frosting with a bit of orange zest-I suspect this would be a good addition.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
These were really good, amazing with the sauce. I almost skipped the sauce as I usually don't use syrup, but it is amazing! I didn't eat all the pancakes right away but heated some up in the toaster later: they were even better!!!
