Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Just the way I like my cookies. I would follow the recipe to a tee if you like your cookies chewy. If not, I'd recommend adding extra flour or oatmeal and refrigerating the dough for a while before baking. You can also change the amount of chewy center by smooshing the doughballs before baking or making them smaller. However, I followed the recipe exactly (but cut in half w/o the walnuts) and loved the result - the outsides were crispy but not dry or burned. The inside is chewy and not so much cake-y. Delicious!!!! :3 Actually I lied, I didn't bake these but my boyfriend did, making them even more of a treat.

Chicken Massaman Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Good basic recipe, although you really want to start off frying the paste first with the oil for a couple minutes and then add the creamy part of the coconut milk. Let the two mix better. I also didn't add peanut butter, because I think that's cheating kind of and another user complained about the thickness of the curry (I like mine soupy, too). I would just use peanuts, throwing them in with the potatoes or at the end, and maybe peanut oil to fry it all up with.

Fruit Cocktail Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
These are really surprisingly good. My boyfriend and I can eat a whole batch ourselves. I'm glad I found a way to use up the random cans of fruit cocktail I have in my pantry. My only issue with this recipe is that it's really kind of a mess chopping up the fruit (the fruit's way too big to not chop up) and mixing it into the batter is a difficult and slimy experience. I used almonds instead of walnuts. I'd try these next time with some coconut flakes baked into the batter or on top.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
This is a terrific recipe. They were really pretty tummy and exciting to make. A hit with my friends, they were gone within twenty minutes after they cooled down. My only qualm: I didn't think they tasted yammy enough. Perhaps they didn't because I added cinnamon and nutmeg. I would totally make these again and probably experiment a little more: try to make them denser brownies, perhaps with more eggs and yam (or sweet potato); add chocolate chips or coconut flakes; add raisins and nuts. :)
