Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This is a delicious, simple, and FAST recipe. I used salted butter and 2 king size Hershey's special dark chocolate bars (about 12 ounces, or 2 cups of chips) and they were perfect! We used the small end of a melon baller and they were just the right size. We rolled some in cocoa powder (which I found too bitter) and some in milk chocolate (which is way too much work! not worth it to me). Next time I might try the nuts, or roll them in a sweeter powder like powdered sugar or even a hot chocolate mix. Basically, you just need something to keep your fingers from melting the delicious and decadent truffle part while you get it into your mouth! I also think they taste better slightly chilled rather than at room temperature.

Cranberry Oat Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Awesome cookies! I added 1 tsp vanilla and I also added 1/2 tsp orange zest (but I don't think it is essential, only another level of flavor and a nice touch). This dough is serious dough and gets really thick by the end, but do not be afraid! I dropped the cookies by rounded tablespoon for smaller cookies (the perfect size for a treat), and pressed them slightly flat before baking. 8 minutes in the oven was perfect. The cookies turned out light and chewy, not overwhelmingly sweet and with lots of different and complimentary flavors. Really delicious and a great change from the usual chocolate chip cookies. Thanks!

Pork, Cashew, and Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
This is a great recipe...easy, tasty, versatile, fast...what more could you want? If you're craving authentic-tasting chinese food, this is the recipe. I used onions, broccoli, and green peppers in place of the green beans.
