At first, I was updating every day... I decided that was boring!  Besides, last week was busy, busy.  We finally have a vacuum (yay!) and I've been cleaning and shopping all week long!  We went to the Cabrillo National Monument, which has some of the prettiest views I've ever… MORE

Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot
Fabulous! I made exactly as written and they were great. It was hard to pick a cookie recipe but I'm glad I chose this one. I divided the dough into 3 smaller parts to roll out, and when one section got too soft, I put it in the freezer and worked another section. These cookies were AMAZING! Now I just have to find an icing I like. Thanks for a great recipe!! I'll never try another!

Rice & Beans (Haitian Style)
This was great! I haven't been back to Haiti for years and was starting to get antsy for non-boxed rice and beans, so I figured I'd try and recreate the dish here. I love it because it's so simple! I couldn't find a scotch bonnet pepper so I used a jalapeno. It was good, but the scotch bonnet is so necessary to Haitian cooking that I'm keeping my eye open for them. Also, I couldn't find adobo seasoning but I don't think I missed it. It was good even with the changes I had to make. Plus it smelled DELICIOUS! I even made hubby eat with his hands like I used to. I gave it four stars because it would be too liquidy as written, that is more New Orleans style. Only 4 to 4-1/4 cups of the bean's water is needed. This one is a keeper, thank you!
