Re:Crème Brûlée Cookies

These didn't wow me. I don't think the burnt sugar topping added much. To be fair, I'm lukewarm about sugar cookies to start with. They are easy to make.

Re:Turkey Cutlets and Black Beans with Tangerine-Habanero Mojo Sauce

We adapted this recipe for a vegetarian meal by skipping the turkey and serving it over rice. We cut the amount of habanero in half and it wasn't very spicy. (I'm pretty whimpy about hot food.) I liked the flavor, but I wish the sauce was thicker.

Re:Red-Cooked Tofu

I'm only lukewarm about tofu, but I like the sauce so much that I've made this several times. My daughter will also eat this, though she generally avoids tofu. I double the sauce ingredients and add some broccoli too.

Re:Orange Butter Cookies with Grand Marnier Glaze

I pretty much followed the recipe, substituting orange oil when I ran out of orange zest. I found the dough very crumbly and hard to roll initially, and I think they only taste OK. I might like it better with more orange zest. I'd rate it 3 stars based on the amount of effort and the taste. However, my co-workers seemed to really like the cookies, so I'm giving it 4 stars.

Re:Spiced Tomato & Red Lentil Soup

I have never cooked with red lentils before. I rinsed them and let them sit in the collander. This was a mistake as they started to harden. Next time, I'll rinse them right before I'm ready to add them to the soup.I made this with vegetable stock, garam masala (from Whole Foods bulk bins), and only 1/8 tablespoon of cayenne. But I doubled the garlic. This came out mildly spicy, which is all I can handle. My family enjoyed it.

Re:Fresh Berry Syrup

This is a great place to begin if you are interested in canning. I made boysenberry syrup, blackberry-mint syrup, and strawberry-raspberry syrup. If you use mint, I suggest using less than the recipe suggests. The blackberry-mint syrup is more like mint-blackberry.

Re:Chocolate-Pomegranate Torte

Tastes great, but very rich! It took me a long long time to cook the pomegranate/apple mix into a thick jelly.

Re:Orange-Hazelnut Olive Oil Cookies

These are nice, mild cookies, but they don't make my "best cookies" list. Except for toasting the hazelnuts, the recipe is very easy.
