Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies
These are fantastic. I didn't give them a 5 star because I made some changes to the recipe that I think needed it... I split the sugar between brown and white. I used butter flavored crisco because I feel that always produces a more superior cookie! I used a full tsp of baking soda, a 1/2 tsp of salt and used regular bacon. Everyone that tried these loved them! Now I can't wait to add a few slices of crumbled bacon to my already popular traditional chocolate chip cookie! And the next time I make these, I may double the bacon--if I can stay out of it while it's cooking!

Southwestern Falafel
I have made these 3 times in the past 2 months and am getting ready to make them again tomorrow! They are a hit with my family--especially the kids, and I took them to a meal swap where they were a favorite! I changed the recipe up some... First, I omitted the salt. With the packaged taco seasoning, it didn't need anymore salt. Second, I added a tsp more cumin and used an entire onion. I also use kidney beans instead of pinto and plan to make them with black beans one of these times! I also use olive oil instead of peanut oil in the mixture and for frying. As with traditional falfalfel, it's better to add the bread crumbs and let the mixture set at least 30 minutes. Much easier to form and fry! I do not deep fat fry mine, but rather skillet fry and I make patties vs balls. Also, it has always taken 1 1/2c bread crumbs vs 1 cup. Again, they fry much better when dryer. Serve with homemade salsa and you have an incredible meal! Enjoy! (PS--sometimes I also serve with tortillas, fresh tomatoes and lettuce)!

Fantastic cookies! I added nutmeg to the dough and a cup of cinnamon chips and they are to die for yummy! Can't wait to take these to my cookie exchange this year! I think I have a new favorite!!!
