The Best Chicken Soup Ever
Love this recipe. Have made it many times and it always gets good reviews. Have learned over time to go with large chicken - 3 lbs and thus more water to start off with. Fill the pot until the chicken is completely submerged. Also later on when simmering I cover the pot as you lose too much liquid to evaporation otherwise. Lastly try to buy the small bow ties (if you have the option) so they don't overwhelm the soup. It really is fabulous - I rarely see anyone adding salt or pepper at the table!

Salmon and Shrimp Cakes
Really tasty. Found this recipe as I had one salmon fillet in the house and about 20 shrimp and was not sure where to go from there. The salmon fillet was only 1/2 lb so I used all of the shrimp. I also was low on breadcrumbs and used 1/2 cup of stuffing mix. The shops here (Australia) do not have seafood seasoning so I looked up Old Bay online and threw into the cakes: allspice, mace, paprika, pepper, celery salt, crushed red pepper, ginger, and nutmeg. The one thing I noted was that the 3 tablespoons of butter in the breadcrumbs was a lot and that moisture was enough to stick a lot of it together which left me with about 1/2 of the mustard/mayo mixture and seasoning unused. I would decrease butter in future and use more of the wet mix. The end result was very tasty.

David's Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies
We have been adding rice cereal to our tollhouse cookies for my entire life (>30 years) but we don't crush them - leaving them whole makes for a great cookie crunch
