Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I only had about a teaspoon of vanilla and these were still great. With a full tablespoon, I think they would have been even better. The middle of these are really chewy without being cakey at all--exactly what I wanted. I only used 1 cup of chips: half 60% cacao chips and half semi-sweet chips. SO GOOD!

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza
This was a great pizza! I used 2 cups of mozzarella and sprinkled some Cheddar cheese on top too. I would warn people to be careful when cooking the chicken w/ BBQ sauce---the sauce I used must have had a lot of sugar in it b/c it burned after about 5 minutes on one side. I just peeled the burnt layer off and it still tasted great. Just a word of warning! The sesame oil gave a great taste, but we only used 1 TB and 1 TB olive oil so it wasn't overpowering. Thanks for sharing!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I've tried other recipes, but this is the favorite in my house! It was chewy without being overly thick, and was easy to shape. This dough would also make awesome breadsticks! After topping the dough I brushed olive oil around the edges and sprinkled garlic powder around. I used a preheated pizza stone, and went ahead and topped the pizza on the stone. The bottom of the crust was already starting to crisp before it was in the oven. It think this helped with the overall end product.
