Classic Butter Cookies II
I don't know what went wrong here. I followed the recipe, but added a little more sugar after reading some of the reviews. I refrigerated it overnight, and when it came time to roll out the dough and use the cookie cutters, I had a big mess on my hands. The dough was gooey and sticky and trying to make shapes with the cookie cutters was impossible. I finally managed to make six round cookies, which I baked as a test run to see if I wanted to bother working with the rest of the dough. I tasted one when it was finished, and it wasn't good. It tasted overwhelmingly of flour, and that's it. Despite the extra sugar I added, it still wasn't very sweet, it was just very bland. I decided I couldn't serve these (I was making them for my niece's grad party) and put the rest of the dough down the garbage disposal. I just can't understand why my dough ended up so sticky and unworkable when others seemed to have no trouble with it.

Quick Black Forest Cake
I made this for my husband's birthday and he was over the moon! I used a Bundt pan and it turned out great. It's really easy to make, but people will think you slaved over it. Yum!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad
This was a hit! It's perfect for eating dinner outside on warm nights. I made the dressing as directed (love it!) but adapted the salad slightly. Like a few others, I toasted the almonds in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350. I didn't use the poppy seeds or sesame seeds. I bought Craisins because they cost less, and I also added mandarin oranges. Crumbly cheese like feta, gorgonzola or goat cheese work wonderfully for added flavor!
