Sweet Corn Tomalito
I would give this 5 stars for taste and 1 star for the directions being unclear, so I'm compromising with 3 stars. It tasted great. Nice and light texture, great flavor. But I had no clue what the instructions meant. Was I supposed to put it in a water bath in a skillet on the stove top? Was I supposed to cook it like in a double boiler type set up? Was I supposed to put a rack over a pan of water and put it on the rack? Please make the directions more clear or someone enlighten me. I ended up putting it in a water bath in the oven at 375 and it was just fine. I'll do that from now on, but I had to do some googling to come to that solution because while I'm not a novice baker, I'm not an expert either. Microwaving is not an option for us.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
I loved this recipe. Due to a dairy allergy in our family, I had to substitute butter with Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks, but other than adding a smidge of vanilla, I did not make any other changes to the recipe. I needed a slightly larger cookie, so I used my small cookie scoop to scoop out 2 balls of dough and then rolled them together to make 1 larger cookie. I was able to get 40 cookies out of this recipe at that size. I baked in the oven for 12 minutes, shut the oven off and let them sit another 5 mintues, then cooled them on the pan for 10 minutes and they were perfection. My daughter, who can't have dairy, loved them and kept asking for more!

Brown Sugar Smokies
These are THE BEST! I buy whatever bacon is on sale, which isn't always center cut and this is what I do to make it nice and crispy. First I "marinade" a ziptop bag of lil smokies and a ziptop bag of bacon strips cut into thirds in the brown sugar for 30 minutes. Next, I assemble them on toothpicks and add them to a bowl, adding more layers of brown sugar after I fill each layer of the bowl. These go in the fridge overnight covered with foil. The next day, I put these in a single layer, none touching any of the others, on a broiler pan. I put these in on 375 instead of 350 and after 30 minutes, I check them every 5 minutes until they're done to my satisfaction. Sometimes I do need to turn them to get the bacon to cook evenly. Then I store in a crockpot on "warm" until I need to take them to the function I am attending. Works like a charm every time, even without using center cut bacon!
