Chocolate Chip Cookies V
I've made this one twice. The first time I followed the recipe except I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. The cookies came out all right, good flavor and chewy and all that, but you could definitely detect something was a little off. The WWF resulted in a kind of graininess that was unpleasant. The second time, I made these cookies exactly per the recipe and they were delicious with excellent texture. Viva all-purpose flour! I craved a little bit more vanilla flavor so I might use vanilla pudding next time rather than the white chocolate.

Carrot Souffle
Very very nice. Way too sweet. I cut the sugar down from 3/4 C to 1/2 C and it was still way too sweet. Mine also turned out soupy but I think it's because when I food-processored the carrots, I added some water to help with that process. So if you Cuisinart the carrots be wary of adding water. In general the dish was a success and I would definitely try it again with less sugar and less water.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
My husband really liked this, but I thought it was really bland and visually unappealing. Changes I made: I added about 1.5 cups of frozen broccoli. For the "enough water to cover", which I didn't understand at ALL as an instruction, I used 2 soup cans of bouillon. I agree with others that 30 minutes is not long enough for the dough to cook -- I cooked mine about 75 min and it probably could've used another 10 minutes. I also cut the breasts up into matchbox-sized chunks since that's how I remember this dish from childhood. When I went to add the dough, the dish was very brothy. I wasn't sure what it was supposed to look like at this stage of cooking but it looked like chicken soup so I ladled out about 3 ladles' worth of the liquid. In the end I was pleased with the consistency and the broccoli came out nice. The chicken was dry and bland (perhaps dry because I cut it up into smaller pieces so it cooked faster?). Really this dish just needs something to kick it up a notch, pardon the expression.
