Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have a family of chocolate chip cookie fiends, and this is my new favorite recipe! I used to always use the recipe from the back of the Ghirardelli chocolate chip bag, but have found that a lot of the time it results in cookies that are very greasy and too flat. This recipe contains more flour and sugar than the Ghirardelli one, but with the same quantities of butter, eggs and vanilla extract, so the cookies hold their shape better and still have a great flavor. You do need to make sure the flour is really well incorporated, or possibly measure a scant 3 cups of flour for the best look. I feel like 1-1/2 cups of chocolate chips is quite adequate and you can be a little more frugal this way. GREAT recipe! Thanks!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork
This was my first time cooking a pork shoulder, and I guess I didn't realize what a fatty cut of meat it is. Mine was 7 lbs, bone in, and I adjusted the ingredients accordingly, omitting the chicken stock and vegetable oil. It took a really long time to cook to the point where it could easily be shredded, probably due to being a bone-in roast. At the end I had to go through and pick out all the fat and try to skim the sauce. The amount of fat truly disgusted me and I had a hard time enjoying the meat because of it. However, it did have a good flavor in the end and my family enjoyed it, so I would make it again, but next time trim off the majority of the fat beforehand. This would be a great pot luck dish with these adjustments.

Caramel Shortbread Squares
These are unbelievable! Even better than my mother's! I made them for a party, and doubled the recipe, but I wish I'd kept a few for our family because they were irresistible! It's a time-consuming process, but well worth it if you want something a little bit special.
