Mmmm... Yummy
About this Cook
Pretty lazy about cooking actually. I enjoy eating out but occasionally get the itch to make something from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
Dessert or Italian, pretty good at both.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big Italian family dinners! Italian immigrant grandma so I was a spoiled kid.
My cooking triumphs
Apple Crisp, Cake batter cookies, steak
My cooking tragedies
Quesidillas about the first four times, mmmm... burnt. I don't know? I was a pretty bad cook at first like most people. Got a burn a few meals I guess.

Doubletree Hotel's Cookies
Good recipe. I agree with the others the actual cookies are more dense and crumbly. I cooked mine 6 minutes longer then directed and they were still chewy and barely brown around the edges. I did cool on a wire rack. Also, this particular recipe really needs the walnuts to hold it together. Don't make the mistake I did and make a batch with none. The ones with walnuts were shaped correctly but without the cookie melts before it bakes and turns into a giant cookie pancake.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Awesome pancakes, came out fluffy and moist. Not dry or hard. Excellent with blueberries!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes
Delicious pancakes. Mine turned out somewhere between a crepe and a pancake which is excellent because they are very moist. I hate dry pancakes. I found the recipe to also be very forgiving if you tend to burn stuff (Me? Never!). Even after having them on a hot griddle until they were a dark golden brown they were still very moist. Not sure why I always get a slight metallic aftertaste with my pancakes. I think maybe I should use less baking powder? My girlfriend suggested letting it sit longer. Admittedly I was hungry and didn't wait the full hour. Either way I know that's probably something I'm doing wrong and not the recipe. I can't wait to make them for my girlfriend! Thanks for sharing.
