The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
O.K., if you are looking for a easy roll-out sugar cookie, I can help you out. I had a "bake-off" between this recipe and another highly rated one, "Cut-out Cookies in a Flower Pot". This recipe is good, but not the best if you are looking for ease of roll-out. I have made "Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" several times and have found that it can be a little temperamental. It does require adding additional flour (I use confectioner's sugar) to get the dough to not be sticky. If you are a beginner, I would not recommend this dough. These cookies are on the "cakey" side and tend to spread quite a bit from the mold. I use tree and star-shaped cutters and have had the sides run past what you'd like (the shape is just recognizable). You may have trouble transferring the dough to baking sheet. BUT, they are delicious. Cut-out Cookies in a Flower Pot are easier to roll out, less caky after baked, and hold their shape better. I preferred the ease of use of the Cut-out Cookies in a Flower Pot. To make sure that there was not a taste difference, I did ask guests at my house to sample both and vote for their favorite. The results were 50/50! Bottom line is that both produce a delicious cookie. But for the ease of rolling and transferring shapes, and since it held the cut-out shape better, I would opt out of this one and use "Cut-out Cookies in a Flower Pot."

Spicy Lamb Patties
This has incredible flavor.. If you are looking for something to do with ground lamb, give this a shot. Just the right amount of heat.

Strawberry Pretzel Salad
I don't give out 5 stars easily, but this one really deserves it! What a perfect balance between the sweet and the salty. I was concerned that the strawberry flavor would be left behind after the pretzels and the creamy filling, but I was wrong. For those of you concerned about the amount of sugar in this recipe, (I will sometimes cut back), the flavors are balanced perfectly. Despite having some rich ingredients, this salad still tastes light, barely sweet, with just a wonderful combination of flavors. This is a terrific "multi-generational" side dish because the kids and the grandparents seem to love the jello aspect of it and I think those in between appreciate it for its delightful and surprisingly sophisticated flavor. Try this one AS IS.... it's perfect.
