This is NOT full of healthy recipes...this is my attempt to keep track of what I eat even during the holiday season. As I make it, I enter the recipe so that I can have an accurate count when I sneak a cookie or two...or three. When I get unlazy, I'll add instructions. April

Kourabiedes

Cookbook creator says: Food Network recipe. You also sprinkle orange flower water, or a reasonable substitute, on the cookies when they come out of the oven, but who knows where to start figuring out those stats?Submitted by SHOWERS2FLOWERS

Sweet and Spicy Party Mix

Cookbook creator says: If you want the heat a little more in the background, reduce cayenne to 1/2 tsp; if you want more, well, the sky's the limit I guess. I stick with 1 tsp because my kid will still eat it at that heat level.Submitted by SHOWERS2FLOWERS

Coconut Macaroons

Almond Bark Pretzels

Cookbook creator says: Color me shocked at the stats on this one. Using big pretzels twists (the thin, not the thick) and almond bark. It's the stupid almond bark that does it, but I have zero success dipping in regular chocolate.Submitted by SHOWERS2FLOWERS

Scandinavian Almond Cookies

Cookbook creator says: Sweeter than I imagined. Next time I'm going to try and cheat it a bit and leave out some of the sugar...not sure what to replace it with...maybe flour, it's pretty moist as is, so it could handle it.Submitted by SHOWERS2FLOWERS

Frosted Sugar Cookies

Cookbook creator says: In retrospect, I should really get fewer cookies out of this...48 is pushing it; I think 36 would be okay. They're just too thin in the end to hold up under the icing. Next year, no tree cookies--bad shape!Submitted by SHOWERS2FLOWERS

Hungry Girl Pumpkin Pie

Cookbook creator says: I wasn't overly fond of this pie. Partly my fault, 'cause my hand sorta slipped when I was adding cloves and ended up with WAY too much. But partly it just wasn't, well...good. Not pumpkin-y enough.Submitted by SHOWERS2FLOWERS

April's baked apples
