Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, pasta, meatless, chicken, breakfast foods, & desserts!
My cooking triumphs
Making an apple pie from scratch that my husband said was better than his moms. And she is THE pie maker. :)
My cooking tragedies
Preheating an oven to make cookies that had a rubbermaid container in it that I'd thrown in there to get off the counter when company was coming. The whole thing ended up in a plastic puddle at the bottom of the oven!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II
I took other reviewers advice, some changes I made were, 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar, a few teaspoons of cherry juice to the cookie dough, and the dough was not at all crumbly or dry. Neither were the cookies. After trying all the different ways to make them, I think that they are WAY prettier if you bake the cookies plain, smush a cherry into them right out of the oven, and then drizzle or cover with the chocolate. These were a HUGE hit with my husband, and I liked them a lot too. I will for sure make them again, and always put the cherries/chocolate on after the cookies bake.

Pepper, Onion & Feta Pizza
A local pizza place makes a sauceless feta cheese pizza sort of like this, and I love it, so I thought I'd give it a try with this recipe as a starting point. I did most of the recipe as written, but added fresh baby spinach leaves and some artichoke hearts. It was delicious. You have to be aware that there is no sauce/gooey cheese to hold it all together and eat it more carefully, but it's a tiny inconvience compared to the yummy taste. Some other toppings I'm considering for next time are marinated mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, and different kinds of olives. Crispy crumbled bacon would also be good on this!

Ham and Cheese Salad
I love adding celery to sandwich fillings for both the taste and the crunch, but my husband HATES how celery strings get in his teeth and avoids it at all costs unless cooked to death. I would have never thought of putting it in the processor with the ham! It's the perfect solution! I'd never made ham salad before, but we really like this recipe!
