I devoured the Famous Five and Secret Seven series when I was a kid. As with Swallows and Amazons, it was the idea of kids going off on their own and having these great adventures all on their own. With the FF in BOATS. I like boats.
Morton's Steakhouse Marinade - recipe from the famous steakhouse. Garlic, thyme, cayenne pepper, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. This makes THE BEST steaks EVER! I cleaned my plate, and I never do that! Seriously, the best steak I've ever eaten - better than any restaurant!
The famous $250 Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe. Who doesn't love a good urban legend? Recipes are so much more fun when there's a good story behind them! And on top of that, these cookies happen to be completely amazing.
