Oatmeal Cherry Walnut Cookies
By: Chef Doogie
These turned out really good -crisp outside and chewy inside. I did use the dried cherries. They're perfect in this recipe. The one thing that was off with this recipe, for me at least, was
the order of addition of the ingredients. I chose to do a more traditional method of mixing. I added the vanilla and milk to the wet ingredients, then added the salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon with the flour.
Delicious! I had a bit of a heavy hand with the seasoning so mine were really spicy, but they were still amazing. I used double skewers so I had to thread mine differently. I also used a half
slice of bacon around each shrimp due to their size and the type of bacon I was using. I will make these again!
Yeah, I know it's a lobster.
Onion Meat Relish
This was good. I served this relish with hot dogs. It added nice variety to our cookout. The onions took much longer to soften than the directions indicated and were still chunky (not really
spreadable) when finsihed.
Lemon Dill Salad Dressing
This dressing is simple to make, is the perfect consistency, and tastes very good. It is definitely tangy, but the lemon isn't overpowering. The dill flavor was understated, but definitely there. This was a nice change from my
Thanks to Scotdog for suggesting this one!
Mediterranean Roast Vegetables
I took the submitter's suggestion and used vegetables I had on hand. I used sweet red pepper, zucchini, and vidalia onion. I chose not to use potatoes as I was already serving rice with my meal. I drizzled on just enough oil
to coat the veggies before roasting. I used white balsamic vinegar, but only used a small amount. Even that amount threatened to overpower the vegetables. I halved this recipe AND skipped the potatoes and this still made a good bit - more than two servings.
Because I was roasting a chicken, I needed to roast these veggies at 350 F. After one hour mine were done perfectly at that temperature.
Asparagus Cheese Soup
By: Donald Laugherty
This was exceptionally good. I followed the recipe exactly and was pleasantly surprised. It's quick and simple to make and very flavorful. This soup was wonderful for a first course, but would work with with some crusty bread
and a salad as a meal.
Irresistable Raspberry Buttermilk Dumplings
Tasty, but very, VERY sweet. If I make these again, I will cut down on the sugar and add more lemon juice. If the lemon was meant to add any tarness, there isn't nearly enough to do the trick. These are very simple to make. I
did need to add some extra buttermilk to make my dumpling dough soft enough. Flipping the dumplings was a little tricky because they were very crowded in the pan.
