Santa's Whiskers III
My mom has made these delicious cookies every year for as long as I can remember, and now I make them as well. I do tend to add a little less pecan and cherry (1/2 cup pecan and 3/4 cherries.) These are crisp and delicious butter cookies, but the cherries and coconut give them a nice chewiness. It bums me out to see the one other negative review, when the cook was obvioulsy just looking for a completely different kind of cookie. These are Santa's Whiskers I've always known them, and I encourage you to try them if you're loking for a simple, festive, and not-to-sweet butter cookie.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Good, but WAY too salty. And I love salty food. I'll cut the salt by half next time. Mine was also a little overcooked after only 4 hours, and I was actually using a 6-pounder. I guess you really need to keep a close eye on it, and take it out as soon as it reaches 170 degrees. As I'm now reading through some of the reviews, I see that someone suggested cooking it breast down for the first 3 hours and then flipping it, which apparently helps keep the breast moist? Never heard of this, but will try it next time. Overall, this was worth trying again with half the salt and a closer eye on the temperature.

Mesquite Cookies
I've never used mesquite flour, so didn't know what to expect. I'm definitely not a fan, but can't blame the recipe. I think I just don't like the taste of mesquite. The cookies had a definite bean aftertaste that was very odd. I brought these to work, and everyone (jokingly) accused me of bringing pot cookies. :) They weren't bad, but just left a really weird aftertaste. Most of the cookies got tossed. Interesting experiment, though!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
