Simple Scones
I made these using a food processor and they turned out very good, but I think I'll try mixing by hand next time to give it more "crumble". I believe the processor made the texture too fine, or else I processed it too much. Mixed in minced dried apricots and orange zest for a great flavor. No more scones at Starbucks!

Cheesy Polenta
I also used parmesean cheese and it came out perfect. Cut the recipe in half for two of us. You'll want to keep an eye on the consistency and add more water if needed so it's not too dry. Molto bene!

Sweet and Gooey Chicken Wings
Simply delicious. Like others, I used less soy sauce and more brown sugar. I added some cayene pepper and next time will add more for some extra kick. These were fall-off-the-bone wonderful and will make them for an upcoming party. By the way, suggest removing the tips and splitting the wings for more servings.
