i made alexis' delicious brown sugar chocolate chip cookies (screw you cookie c__t!)
i made maida heatter's danish butter sandwich cookies with vanilla cream filling from martha stewart's baking book. i made spinach and cheese puff from marthastewart.com. i also made my friend deborah's spinach artichoke dip - which is the greatest hot dip ever! i am asking if i can share the recipe with you because it is that good.
i made two kinds of cornbread- one traditional (thanks allie lewis from everyday foods!) and one from our listener brian with creamed corn... i adapted it a little based on paula deen's recipe on foodnetwork.com (so good!). i roasted some cauliflower with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
there were brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes etc. so much food- couldn't possibly show all.
i ate so much!
