Hawaiian Sweet and Sour Chicken

This is my husband's very favorite meal.  He always requests it for his birthday dinner.  It's different from a typical sweet and sour chicken because it isn't as sticky, but it is delicious.  The recipe comes from Grandma Vicky and my mother-in-law Lisa.  Her five sons eat two pans of this chicken any time she makes it. 4-6 chicken breasts (cut each breast into pieces) 1/2 cup cornstarch...

These cookies are soft, chewy and so delicious. I ALWAYS double the batch (it makes approx. 5 dozen cookies), it fits just perfectly that way in my KitchenAid, and I love freezing the extra dough or cookies. So if you’d like to do a smaller...
