Super Bowl Desserts

Wow, these do sound delicious and tart! 3/4 c lemon juice plus the zest will definitely give these a zing. Can't wait to try them. I'll let you know how they turn out when I do. Thanks.

I will definitely try the oatmeal butterscotch cookies, what a great combo!

Super Bowl Desserts

Well, I ended up making small gooey chocolate cookies, carrot cake cream cheese sandwich cookies and coconut tassie cups. They were all a hit.

My dad loves lemon desserts and I'm always looking for a good recipe, so if you come back to this post Diane, I would love to have your lemon bar recipe. Thanks.

Super Bowl Desserts

I just found Everyday Baking on TV while flipping through our food channels. I haven't watched it yet, but I recorded two episodes. I also just started watching Cook's Illustrated. Good Show.

Super Bowl Desserts

Good ideas. I think I'll stick with small finger-sized desserts.
Perhaps....

*Coconut filled tassie cups- Easy and uniquely delicious.
*Paula Deen's Chocolate Gooey Cookies- They are so good and chocolaty.
Plus super easy. They use a cake mix (I know, I know) but they turn out
super soft and everyone loves them.
*Mini cupcakes of some sort, baked in the mini muffin pans.

Super Bowl Desserts

Got invited to my husband’s friends house for Super Bowl. I have to bring dessert. About 15-20 people. I’m deciding between a big layer cake or 3-4 different small desserts (cookies, brownies etc). So, would prefer to have a slice of say, triple-layer chocolate cake after you finish a bowl or two of chilie? Or would you like to have some small finger-sized desserts that you could snack on with the rest of the food?

What sounds better for dinner?

I'm having a dinner party for five people tomorrow night. They are friends of my husband and I have never cooked for them before. I would like to know which dinner menu out of the two below you think sounds the best.

#1 Pasta Marguerite: Roma tomato sauce with fresh basil, mozzarella and parmesan
Mixed Salad with pine nuts, chevre, yellow and red cherry tomatoes and homemade
dressing.
Bakery Bread
Red Wine
Vanilla ice-cream with sabayon sauce and berries

#2 Homemade Chicken Pot Pies with a pastry crust
(chicken, carrots, celery, peas corn, onions...)
Mixed green salad
Beer
Chocolate Layer Cake

Also, if you would choose the pot pie, what else would you serve with it besides a salad?

cheap weekday lunch in UTC area San Diego

I just stumbled upon this chow blog and I’ve been checking out some of your posts. You seem to be well versed in the area of good cuisine. My husband and I will be moving to La Jolla at the end of July and I’m not familiar with any of the eateries there. What would you recommend to get us started? Coffee? a quick sandwich? A yummy bakery? Or any type of restaurant worth trying. Thanks SK
