Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings
I played with this recipe quite a bit, but it's a good basic place to start. I made a small batch, using one giant chicken breast, and made it with a little more liquid than the cut-down recipe suggested. I did not remove the vegetables and instead pureed the stock with an immersion blender before adding any flour to thicken. Instead of milk I used heavy cream in the dumplings (because I needed to use it up) and also added some extra cream to the stock for extra creaminess. Also I made small, walnut sized dumplings rather than large ones.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
These weren't bad (they are, after all, still chocolate chip cookies), but they were not the kind of choco chip cookies I like. They did, however, taste very much like bakery cookies. Alas, that isn't something I want with my home baked cookies. Even though the measurements seemed fairly standard, I'm much happier with the recipes found on bags of chocolate chips. I like mine very buttery, and rather spread out and chewy. These came out kind of thick and crunchy.

Sweet Corn Tomalito
Definitely make this, but definitely use the microwave instructions listed in the Most Helpful review. Exact results, same delicious taste.
