Crawfish Bisque

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
This recipe was good. I used 3 cloves of garlic since hubs doesn't like onion. It probably would have benefitted from the onion flavor. I also omitted the cayenne since our crawfish was pretty spicy and my oldest is sensitive to spicy foods. I added a small amount of brown sugar to balance it out since I felt something was missing. This was a fantastic use of the extra tails I froze after our last crawfish boil. I ran them through the food processor for several pulses so the chunks of it weren't so huge. I used 4 cups, not sure how that works out weight-wize, probably more than necessary, but it wasn't overkill. I ate too much. I am definitely keeping this recipe for future crawfish leftovers. I'll possibly see about making up some stock and using that as others suggested.

Soft Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I was looking for a soft pumpkin cookie recipe and this turned out pretty much at the texture/consistency I was looking for. Definitely more muffin-like/chewy than regular cookies as others have mentioned, but that's what I wanted. I doubled the recipe because I wanted to use a full 2-cups of pumpkin (I made my own purée and allotted it in 2-cup increments). I also made several adjustments: I doubled (again) the butter content (for a total of 4 Tbsp), used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup white sugar (so 1.5 total for the doubled recipe), cut the vanilla to 1 tsp., and added 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. I eliminated the walnuts. The flavor was good, but very mild. If I make this again, I'll add more pumpkin pie spice and possibly more pumpkin to kick up the flavor. And as others have mentioned, definitely grease the cookie sheet.
