Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have never found a choc chip cookie recipe that I can make. Even break an bakes I don't like/slightly burn. However these came out FABULOUS!!! I made a half batch filled to brimming with craisins and another batch plain choc chip. Neither batch had nuts in it as one of my sons is allergic and they still came out perfect. As suggested by others, I used 1.5 brown and .5 white sugar ratio not sure what would of happened if I used the set amount. THANKYOU for sharing!!!!!

Basic Crepes
very quick and easy, for a fraction of the premixed buy and add egg and water kits. I added a dash of vanilla extract to the mix for non-savory crepes and topped with marmelade, and a tiny drop of sour cream. Also great with any jarred preserves, i.e. cherry/blueberry grocery store brand. Makes a gourmet meal without alot of fuss, mix, pour,top and devour.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls
I am vietnamese and had this numberous times. I simplify and yet keep it authentic with a few twists to this version. As another reviewer noted, must add boiled pork cut thin. for greens I used a prebagged/prewashed mixed green salad bag from the grocery store. cilantro is a must, as well as a cucumber and celery spear. celery may be about a 5th or so of a standard piece of celery.As well as a strand or two of green onion running the length of the roll. As far as the hoisin, we always added lime and fresh chili to the hoisin and then topped with toasted crushed peanuts. WE NEVER served it with fish sauce. Might be a my family thing, but even when I order these from the local restaurants they only serve it with Hoisin the way I mentioned. Great basic recipe. Great light lunch/dinner not just an appetizer.
