My favorite things to cook
I've recently gotten into baking, and I'm really enjoying that so far!

Key Lime Pie VII
I've used this recipe verbatim a few times, and I'm simply amazed each time. It's so simple that it almost breaks my brain that it comes out perfect, delicious, and so professional! Every time I've made it, I use a homemade crust (2.25 cups graham crumbs, .5 cup packed brown sugar, 5 oz melted butter), which is crazy good. -- I experimented this time. I love grapefruit, so I decided to try this recipe using fresh grapefruit juice instead of lime. Won't lie, I haven't tried it yet, but it looks and smells perfect. It took 20 minutes in the oven, however, so if you're daring enough to try it, keep that in mind!

Keon's Slow Cooker Curry Chicken
I couldn't find my cayenne pepper, so I substituted chili powder and it wasn't hot at all. It was, however, really tasty! I will definitely make this again!

Raspberry and Apricot Rugelach
WOW. These did not disappoint AT ALL. The recipe made a large enough batch that I was able to share with my office and friends, and everyone wanted the recipe! RAVE REVIEWS all-around! ------------------ I also took Deborah's advice and rolled out the dough between wax paper BEFORE refrigerating (I have a feeling things would've been a total mess had I avoided that advice). That made preparation a cinch. I also used whole wheat flour, and everyone loved it. I can't wait to try these with some new variations on filling!
