Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
This is the best Shortbread cookie recipe I've found so far. My husbands grandmother is from England and notoriously hard on shortbread since she grew up with traditional shortbread and shortbread cookies. I made these and she raved about them and no longer wants any kind but the ones I make. I'd say that's a compliment!! I do tweak mine just a bit by sometimes adding a scraped vanilla bean and only one teaspoon of Vanilla extract. I prefer also to let the dough chill after I mix it together and roll it into a roll, wrap in plastic and refrigerate and then cut slices off of to bake. With the amount of butter, it just really is easier, less messy, etc. Am thinking of trying these with some chopped pecans and toffee bits one day!

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
I just have to say, this is the BEST way to eat Brussel Sprouts if you possibly don't like them. My brother made this recently and I agreed to try it, even though I have a lifelong hatred for them. I have tried them Many different ways and have never been able to get more than down. This though, I Loved. I went back for seconds at dinner and the next day, stole some off my husbands plate when he was warming them up to eat. They are THAT good. My brother used Turkey Bacon instead of regular and it was great. Something about the cheese and bacon, cuts all that bitter Brussel Sprout taste and just leaves you with something yummy instead. I think I'll be making this myself and omitting the bread crumbs and adding extra cheese as I'm trying to watch my Carbs.
