Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
I love these cookies BUT ... I made these last year (added extra ginger). The cookies looked just like the picture and tasted awesome. This year I substituted the orange juice (this is one of the preferred edits) with orange liqueur, and although the cookies taste devine, they are really flat (and I am not even pressing them down). Not sure why. However, my cookies do look like those in the video for this recipe. At any rate, this recipe produces exceptionally tasty cookies. You need to use quality (fresh) spices. If the spices are stale, your cookies will be bland. I suspect this is one of the issues with people who rate this recipe poorly. I'm giving this 5 stars, based on my 2012 results. I assume I did something wrong in 2013. I made 4X the recipe for a cookie exchange. My cookies will be the ugly ducklings (they were last year too), but they will still be the yummiest.

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
Good use of ingredients. I liked the PB. Rather than Thai, I see this as an African-based soup, with the use of peanut and sweet potato. I did not have sour cream on hand and used thick cream instead. Would love to try this with sour cream, but honestly, it is delicious without either. You don't need cilantro, but it is quite nice. I added more flakes and cumin. I don't think it is fair to rate a recipe when you have made any changes, but as I am a soup snob, I give this a 4 star.
