Spiced Sweet Potato Cookies

these are just PERFECT. They're mildly sweet, and not as aggressively spiced as most giner or molasses cookie recipes I've seen. Definitely a new favorite.

Cook the Book: 'My New Orleans'

Cheese! I live in dairy country, so there's about 3 major producers of cheese in my area, each about an hour away.

Mmmmm... craving some fresh curds right now...

Cook the Book: Cooking Under Pressure

My mother's food processor. I swear, that thing is older than I am, and all our animals head for the hills when it's turned on, but it does a hell of a better job than my micro processor.

The Nasty Bits: Lamb's Neck Stew

Would saying that the neck is my favorite part of the traditional Thanksgiving turkey be out of line here? The rest of my family thinks I'm odd for enjoying sucking every last bit of meat from the bones.

What Is Superman Ice Cream?

In Canada it's usually sold by Laura Secord as Superkid, though as far as I remember, the colors of Superkid are a LOT more vibrant than those in the picture.

Cook the Book: 'Modern Spice'

Indian. My father's on a restricted diet, and being able to find new, healthy alternatives to the traditional steak and potatoes would be nice. God knows he's a picky eater!

In Videos: Melanie Hutsell Impersonates Paula Deen on 'Paula's Best Dishes'

What to do with veal neck?

There were some pretty meaty veal neck pieces at the grocer's today, and seemingly no oxtail. Can I just use veal neck as I would oxtail in a stew?

Also, what other uses would you suggest for veal neck? Keep in mind that I don't really have time to make things like veal stock.
