I have not posted a recipe for a long time, so I thought I'd just share links to a few that I have really liked lately.
1. Martha Stewart's Homemade Graham Crackers
I made these for the kids, and they loved them. I found the recipe shortly before Thanksgiving, and I also used it as a crust under a banana cream pie. I was very, very pleased. I loved the flavor and texture, and the dough was easy to form into fancy pastry shapes. I rolled it out with waxed paper instead of parchment, and that worked great. I found it amusing that her recipe calls for "high-quality" honey. I just used raw local honey, and it was fine.
2. Oven Fries
Actually, I changed this recipe's spices significantly, and the results were elbow-your-neighbor-for-the-last-spatula-full good. I added paprika and cumin and went easy on the red pepper. Mmmmmmmmmm. I previously underestimated the importance of cutting the potatoes small enough to be french fry-ish, and I also think I have over-oiled oven fries in the past pretty heavily. I saw another oven fry on pinterest that had ten times the oil of this recipe. To me that seems almost like deep-frying in the oven instead of a deep frier, don't you think?
3. Chicken Parmesan Bake
4. Easy Cheese Danish
I also found this on Pinterest. I tried it for Christmas morning breakfast. To avoid the grocery store on Christmas Eve, I halved the cream cheese, and the author was right that it is still yummy. Still, I will try with both packages of cream cheese next time, just because I think it would have been better with both. Love how easy this is.
