What worked well, what didn't?

What worked well over the last few days and what didn't? I wasn't on the hook for main dishes, but did make a few things. One of the best things I made was an appetizer for a party. Was the spiced nuts with sugared bacon from the New York Times a few weeks ago. People loved that and I will definitely be making it again. My pizzelles turned out kind of soft, not crispy. Got some good advice on how I might fix that. Thought I'd have time to make another batch this year, but didn't. The advice will definitely be used next time tho. I made financiers with almond flour. I didn't have any premade almond flour so I ground my own in the food processor. May have been a little thicker than usual, more like a macarroon, but people liked them. I made a wine reduction sauce with dried cherries in it from a Susan Spicer recipe for the financiers. I will definitely make that again. Super easy and would be good over ice cream or other things.

What worked and didn't for you?
