Butter Cookies V
I really liked these cookies! I was looking for an easy way to make butter cookies at home -- wanted a recipe with a handful of ingredients you usually have on hand. This is it. And they tasted plenty buttery to me! With a pound of butter, how could they not? I also bought colored sprinkles to give them some color. Mine didn't turn out round though. The roll flattens on the bottom when they sit in the refrigerator. Doesn't affect the taste of course. I mainly make them for my mother (who's alway looking for something sweet and doesn't care if the cookie has a funny shape). The last batch I made, I put the roll (didn't make a full batch) in the freezer and they were ready to cut and bake a lot sooner. I'm going to see if I can find a way to keep the logs from flattening and then try to keep from flattening the log as I cut the cookies. Like others have said -- a keeper. I even put the list of ingredients in my phone so, while I'm at the store, I know whether I have to pick up an ingredient I'm out of. If a cake that takes a pound of butter is a pound cake, then this must be a recipe for Pound Cookies! Call them what you want, they're great.

Twenty Minute Chicken
I don't know how some reviewers could say the recipe was bland when you're putting garlic and onions in it. I used chicken thighs and drumsticks with skin on and bone in for this recipe -- just needed to use them up. Don't try this at home. It took me longer to cook them, and added too much fat to the recipe. My mistake there. I did add some seasonings (salt, pepper, and garlic powder) to the chicken before I cooked it. I didn't have the cheese and didn't really miss it. The only thing I'd really change from the original recipe is to use boneless skinless chicken thighs (I just like dark meat better). I'm sure they'll cook a lot faster. I also used an oven safe pan and agreed cooking the mushrooms, onion and garlic in the same pan the chicken was cooked in helped the flavors blend better! This recipe is a keeper with me. Can't wait to try it with the chicken thighs, and the cheese will make it that much better. Thanks for this recipe, Celia!

Golden Sweet Cornbread
I made muffins from this recipe. I followed the recipe for the batter to the letter. I used butter on my muffin pan, and the muffins were done with golden brown bottoms in about 15 minutes. They came right out of the pan, so I'm using butter from now on. I set my timer for 20 minutes, so it was a good thing I peeked in on them early! I didn't have muffin liners, but would have been hesitant to use them, since they seem stick to the finished product and leave you with less muffin to enjoy. I thought they might be too sweet with the 2/3 cup of sugar, but they were fine.
