Easy Red Beans and Rice
The dish was edible, however, I will not be making this again. I kicked it up with the addition of cayenne, but found it to be dry, not very saucy. And I agree with other reviewers that tomatoes seemed out of place. Not impressed what so ever.

Chef John's Peanut Butter Cookies
These are exactly what I want in a peanut butter cookie - chewy and crisp at the same time. I followed the recipe exactly, the need to refrigerate the dough is essential so plan ahead. Upon removing from the oven, I pressed a chocolate kiss or a M&M in the center. I can also see rolling the cookie dough ball in sugar before impressing with the fork.

Country Apple Dumplings
I too made some adjustments to the recipe. I cooked down the butter, sugar & cinnamon until it had an amber, caramel color. It was like hot molten lava but clung to and covered the crescent covered apple slices. I poured the mountain dew around NOT on the dumplings. I had halved the recipe which calls for 12 oz of Mountain Dew - I used 8 oz. There was still way too much sauce after baking which tends to make the bottom crust soggy, so next time, I'll only use 1/2 cup of mountain dew. With vanilla ice cream on the side it's delicious!!!
