Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe is good however, the cook time is not. I found that my cookies look flat with pertruding chocolate chips in them when cooked at ten minutes but when cooked at 15 or so minutes, they rise all the way. I'm getting more and more into baking and this is the first time I've ever dissolved the baking soda in water first. I think it really makes a difference.

Best Black Beans
I needed a base recipe to go by to make a can of black beans for the first time. I used the ingredients and amounts in the recipe but sauteed my onions and garlic on low for about 15 minutes. I rinsed and drained the beans and added them to the onion/garlic mixture and added cilantro, chilli powder, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper. Before I added the spices, I tried it and it was very bland. After adding enough salt and more spices, I got it to taste very well. I did not cook down my beans as long as I should have but the flavor was what I was going for. Added a little lime on it afterwards too.

Stuffed Zucchini
I needed a base recipe for stuffed zucchini as the neighbor gave us one that is HUGE. I sliced the zucchini in lengthwise boats and removed all of the huge seeds. I placed them in the oven at 425 to cook them down a bit due to their size. Meanwhile, I sauteed 1/4 of a sweet onion and 3 cloves of garlic in a pan. Once browned, I added my pork and beef mixture. I took out the onions and garlic and set aside as I figured the meat would accumulate grease. I seasoned the mix with crushed red pepper flakes, oregano, fresh basil, and s+p. I cooked the mix until browned. I added back the onion and garlic that I had set aside once the pan was drained. I put the drained mixture into a bowl. I added 1/2 a heirloom tomato with some juice, 1/4 cup parm cheese, breadcrumbs, and 1 egg.
