My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
grills and i don't get along - everything seems to end up either undercooked or charred beyond recognition. i've taken to broiling stuff instead.

Hasenpfeffer (Rabbit Stew)
We loved this! Some words of wisdom - unless we catch our own rabbit next time, I think we'll sub in chicken thighs. Rabbit (at least the one we bought from D'Artagnan) tastes seriously JUST like chicken, but is a lot more expensive. That being said, this recipe is a real winner - didn't change a thing and we are still talking about it!

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash
We liked this, but I felt it needed more spices to be really Moroccan. I may experiment with a few different blends, but overall the idea is sound. Also, for those squeamish about the raisins - I was suspicious but found they contributed to the dish rather than detracted from it.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These were delicious! I think the base recipe is probably great (and as some reviewers said, very similar to the Quaker Oats box recipe), but I did make some modifications. I used 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour in place of 1/2 a cup of the all purpose flour. I used craisins instead of raisins because I had a ton of them lying around. I also wanted to use up some chopped pecans and white chocolate chips, so I added a cup each of those. Since I'd added all this the dough got too dry, so I added 1/4 cup of applesauce. Then the dough was too wet, so I added 2 tablespoons of flax seed. Seriously yummy!!!
