Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I
This recipe is excellent as written. I have these several times with PERFECT results each time! The cookies are PACKED with chocolate and they're very soft and moist. I have used half butter and half butter-flavored shortening before. They turn out fine. Today, I used 1/4c butter and 3/4c butter-flavored shortening because that's what I had on hand. I do add about a tsp vanilla and sometimes some cinnamon. Today, I made the shortening substitution above, and also added 1 tsp vanilla, and used 1c semisweet chocolate chips and 1c peanut butter chips. I now have awesome chocolate/peanut-butter chip oatmeal cookies. They'll be a hit at work tonight! The 15min baking time works perfectly in my oven @ 350 deg. Enjoy!

Pizza Pasta Bake
Great recipe! I made it with ground beef, pepperoni, and turkey sausage. My husband won't touch mushrooms or olives, so I omitted those and added chopped spinach to the skillet w/ the meat and onions. I also didn't have enough mozzarella, so I added some grated provolone, asiago, and a little bit of sharp cheddar. Turned out just right. :)

Spinach Chicken Parmesan
My hubby and I really enjoyed this, and I only made a few modifications to the recipe. I added garlic powder, used half of a sweet onion since green onions weren't available, and used two whole chopped pimientos. Next time, I might add some marinated artichokes. I'll definitely double the amount of topping. I also like the idea of adding some breadcrumbs; I didn't think to do that while I was making it. The chicken turned out very tender and moist. I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could, just because I had to make those few simple modifications to give it a little more flavor.
