Grilled Cuban Pork Chops
I thought this recipe was only ok. i actually thought it used too much lime zest. maybe i am not a huge fan of lime. my husband put his on a sandwich and my kids didn't touch it. i am going to be making the Grilled Chile-lime chicken tonite but i am going to omit the lime zest. lime zest is too overpowering for my taste.

Fiesta Fudge Cookies
After reading the reviews I decided to try this cookie for my holiday cookie trays and WOW.I was baking with my mother in law and sister in law and they sampled the cookie and they also loved it. A definate keeper. I make chocolate desserts all the time and never anything this fudgy. I would probably attribute that to the sweetened condensed milk. The only thing I changed with this recipe was that I omitted the cinnamon. I was unsure of how it would taste and with this being the only chocolatey thing on my tray I didn't want to have it possibly taste weird with the cinnamon and have people hate it. In a couple of weeks after all of the sugar shock has worn off from the holidays, I am going to test this out with the cinnamon.

Everyone loved these cookies. At this particular halloween party, I am not sure if any of the kids got any because all of the adults ate them. The gel doesn''t work very well and I had trouble getting the kisses to stick to the cookies so I decided to warm a skillet over medium low heat and warm the bottom of the kiss till it starts to melt a little bit and then stick it to the cookie. Worked like a charm. This year I am going to try to use a different medium for the bow.
