Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Followed recipe exactly. Cookies puffed and looked good at ten minutes, but then fell drastically once removed from the oven. Basically crepe-thin, with chocolate chips sticking up. I used brand new baking soda, measured flour perfectly (aerated, scooped in lightly, leveled with knife), triple checked oven temperature (even have a separate in oven thermometer), softened butter but still firm, and both cooked them on my normal baking sheets and also tried my air bake ones. Tried silpat and parchment paper. Same results each time. They taste great (a little too sweet for my tastes, but perfect for my husband's), but the fact that they are basically crepe-thin ruined it for us. No idea what went wrong. Added some baking powder to the rest of the batch, chilled the dough, and they STILL collapsed, UGH :(

Blueberry Cream Muffins
The muffins are good. A little bland, but if you use tasty/fresh blueberries, they make up for it. Followed the recipe exactly, but after 15 minutes (the first I checked) they were BURNT. Bottoms were 1/4 inch of burnt batter, and they were burnt around the edges, but the middle was pure batter :( I don't know why -- don't see any reviews complaining of this, and I know my oven is correct because I use several different thermometers. I didn't change anything in the recipe at all. Also, makes more than 24. Filled my cups to the brim, made 24, they burned. Lowered to 350 and easily made 20 mini muffins with remaining batter.

Fluffy Pancakes
Just another 5 star rating. This is the best pancake recipe I've ever used. Delicious. We add 1/3c blueberries and serve with salted butter and real maple syrup. PERFECT.
