Chocolate Cookies
I just baked these, and realized this recipe is the recipe (cut in half) that my mother got from her high school boyfriend's mother in the 50s, only hers bakes them at 325 and uses 1/4 cup less flour (all purpose flour). I've loved them since I was a little girl, and have been making them for my kids since they were born. People either love them or they don't care for them at all. I will say, I never like them hot out of the oven. They are tasteless straight from the oven. They are much better the next day. Also, don't overbake them. 12-15 minutes is way too long for this cookie, and I don't make them small. (2 1/2 inches fully baked) Nine minutes is fully baked, and that is at 325. We never add nuts or chocolate chips to this recipe, and I can't imagine them made with cake flour. They are already fluffy enough.

Best Brownies
I will definitely try these again. I made them exactly according to the recipe, which I don't usually do. But, there were such dire warnings of not baking them too long that when I checked them with a couple of minutes left to go (about 23), and thought they already looked way done, I set them out to cool. Sadly, they weren't quite done, and I think the person who said 25 minutes is perfect was right. Also, I thought the frosting was too much. I don't usually like frosted brownies, so I should have known better. Still, they were good enough I gave them four stars. OH, and they were super easy to make.

Southern Skillet Dinner
I came searching for this recipe. I used to make it, and we all LOVED it! I called it Slop, because it looks just awful. Tastes great, though. I agree with those who said it really needs the pepper. I like to add a little red pepper, too. Oh, and I've made it with just green beans if that's all I had, and that's always really good, too.
