Hasty Chocolate Pudding
Tasty and easy. I made a quarter of the recipe over the stove. I dumped the dry ingredients [including Droste Dutch-processed cocoa] into a pot and gradually added the milk [1% lowfat milk]. I stirred constantly with a fork until everything seemed dissolved. Then I turned on the heat and kept it low while constantly stirring and scraping down the sides. In five minutes or so I had a delicious and chocolate-y treat. Thick and smooth, too. As good as store-bought pudding. [Probably better since you actually know all the ingredients going in it.]

Chocolate Crinkles III
I followed the recipe exactly, except I did as one reviewer suggested and stuck the dough in the freezer for about 45 minutes. Then I used a lightly oiled tablespoon scoop to drop the dough into the confectioner's sugar. I rolled it around for a bit and then formed it into a ball before plopping it on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. I squished the dough balls down a bit before baking for about 15 minutes. The cookies spread a lot more than I thought they would, so I'm glad that they were placed about 2 inches apart. [I actually like the flatter version more than the little mounds you see in the photos] Despite the extended baking time and flat-ish shape, they still came out chewy and soft and fudgy [maybe a tiny bit crisp or hard on the sides]. They really are brownies in cookie form :D [Note: 1/4 a recipe yielded 10 cookies. I used a rounded, generous tablespoon for each cookie.]

Annemarie's Lemon Bars
1) changed the number of servings to 24 when making the curd 2) added a few extra squeezes of lemon juice, no more than a tsp 3) sides of the pan seemed a tad short so there wasn't enough room for a bit of the curd [also, I didn't know this at the time, but it was about 7 in rather than 8] 4) crust seemed a tad too soft, although the edges were slightly browned. too much butter, too little baking time? I followed all the other directions and despite my griping, they still came out wonderful and delicious. I'll definitely make them again =]
