Christmas Stollen
Try it in your bread machine. Really! Just put in all the liquid ingredients, then the flour (I reduced the amount to 2 1/4 cups) and then the yeast on top...after it has started to mix together, add the candied fruit a little at a time. Most of it will mix in, some may be left at the bottom of the pan. After the first rise, remove it from the machine. Turn your oven on to 200 degrees for 5 minutes - then turn it off. Knead the dough a little to get all the fruit in - the dough should be soft and a little sticky - don't add to much flour it will make the final product stiff and dry! Then roll it out and put in the marzipan just like the recipe says. Put it in the warmed oven to rise - I guarantee it will rise up beautifully - as long as you haven't added too much flour! It is a wonderful recipe!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo
What can I say? It was like being back near Cajun country again! I will never have to settle for a box mix gumbo again. The only suggestion I can make is to boil the chicken so its a little more "shreddy".

Gingerbread Boys
The absolutely best ever gingerbread cookies! The addition of orange zest is culinary genius, it really does set the cookie apart. I also substituted molasses for the corn syrup. The only other thing I did differently was to cut the butter in half and add one more egg. I thought that might help the spreading problem other reviewers had written about. It didn't. They do spread, be warned and pick a very simple cookie cutter design and space them out well on the cookie sheet. Or roll them into little balls and moosh them flat a little- they make beautiful gingersnaps that way.
