    I tried to make pralines last week. They came out totally disgusting.

    Just wanted to say thanks to roseskid for sharing the recipe. I made a batch to take to work and they were a big hit. So I made two more batches to share with my family.

    1 1/2 oz. Midori
    1 1/2 oz. Bacardi Dark Special or Bacardi Dark Rum
    6-8 oz Pineapple juice.

    Shake it up and serve it on rocks
    Thanks for this one, too, queenb! This one I used for myself!

    Back to chopping onions again... I just watched a show on foodnet and she said if you store the whole onion in the freezer and chop it frozen you won't cry. I've stored chopped onion in the freezer but I've never heard of freezing it before choppping. Worth a try I guess.

    (Marleybone, I love your av. ) I have bought some strong onions lately, so I'm game to try chopping frozen onions...this sounds like a great idea.

    You're welcome, Anemone. Like I've said before, it's from my mother (the Rose, in Roseskid ), but where she got it, I'm not sure. I love lemon-anything, but these cookies are extra good.

    Roseskid, I tried to do your recipe, but you specified lemon cake mix, no poudding and I couldn't find any without the poudding at the grocery store. Is there a reason why it has to be without poudding?

    I'm not sure exactly why it is, maybe they spread out too much if it has the pudding? I'll look the next time I'm in the grocery store to make sure it doesn't have pudding, but I think I've used the Betty Crocker with great success:

    Good old ham rollups are a favorite here
    (slice of deli ham, smeared with cream cheese, green onion, roll and slice).
    Tortilla chips and salsa- always a popular choice.

    Thank you dear!

    I posted yesterday in the "what are you eating or drinking right now" thread that I was having some Cinnamon Jello salad, and somebody (I think it was misskitty) was curious about the recipe so here it is:

    CINNAMON JELLO SALAD

    1 small box Cherry Jello
    1 cup hot water
    1/4 cup Cinnamon Red Hot candy
    1/2 cup boiling water
    1 cup chopped, peeled apples
    1 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    Pour 1/2 cup boiling water over red hot candy, set aside until dissolved. Pour 1 cup hot water over jello and stir until jello is dissolved. Add enough water to cinnamon water to equal 1 cup liquid, and then add to jello. Place jello in refrigerator and when almost set add apples, celery and walnuts.

    One thing I've tried that's worked for me is rinsing both the knife and the onion [after peeling the outer skin] in cold water before chopping. I haven't cried since using this method.
