Here is a really good cookie recipe!!!!!!

Christmas Cookie Ingredients:


            1 cup of water
            1 tsp baking soda
            1 cup of sugar
            1 tsp salt
            1 cup of brown sugar
            lemon juice
            4 large eggs
            1 cup nuts
            2 cups of dried fruit
            1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequilla

             Sample the Cuervo to check quality.  Take a large bowl,
check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one
level cup and drink.

            Turn on the electric mixer...Beat one cup of butter in a
large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point
it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try another cup ... just
in case.



           Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to
the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off
floor... Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the
beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Cuervo to
check for tonsisticity.

           Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who giveshz a
sheet. Check the Jose Cuervo. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your
nuts.  Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can  find.
Greash the oven.

            Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.
Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the
window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the
dishwasher.

            CHERRY MISTMAS!!!

Okay to go along with the bump I'll add a recipe or two


Zucchini with Cinnamon and Garlic
Zucchini alla Canella
The combination may sound a little odd, but it certainly tastes delicious. If you grow zucchini or have access to a market that sells zucchini blossoms, their subtle flavor and beautiful color make a lovely addition to this dish.
Makes 4 servings
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
4 long, fancy zucchini (about 6 ounces each), washed, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch rounds
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Chicken Stock (Lidias Italian Table, p. 80) or canned low-sodium chicken broth
6 fresh, plump zucchini blossoms, cut into 1/2-inch strips (optional)
In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat until foaming. Add the garlic and cook until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the zucchini, season lightly with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the zucchini is softened, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the cinnamon over the zucchini. Add the stock and blossoms, if using, and continue cooking until the zucchini is very tender and the stock is evaporated, about 3 minutes. Check the seasonings and adjust if necessary before serving.

In my continuing quest to eat more healthfully (and still have food that my 10 year old won't turn his nose up at) I made this Food Network recipe last night, and it was absolutely delicious...very different in texture because of the barley (which I happen to love) and the veggies were nice and tender but still bright.  I didn't add the butter at the end.

Vegetable Barley Risotto
Recipe courtesy "Robert, the First," by Robert Irvine with Brian O'Reilly, Harper Collins Publishers, 2006

6 cups chicken broth
1/8 cup canola oil
1 pound bag pearl barley
1 zucchini, medium dice
1 yellow squash, medium dice
1 carrot, medium dice
1 red onion, medium dice
1 bay leaf
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 cup whole unsalted butter

Bring chicken broth to a simmer. In a separate large saucepan on an adjacent burner, heat the oil and add barley. Lightly saute: you actually are toasting the barley. Add vegetables to the barley and saute them until translucent. Add bay leaf and garlic. Begin slowly adding broth, 1 ladle-full at a time, to the barley/vegetable pan, stirring occasionally: this will bring out the starch in the barley. As the mixture absorbs the broth, ladle more into the pot. When all of the broth has been ladled into the barley pot, slowly simmer until barley is soft and creamy. Add butter as the last step for more flavor and creaminess to risotto.
