Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies
I followed others' advice and reduced salt to 1/2 tsp. My cookies were about 1.5" wide after baking, so actually only took 8 minutes of bake time. I also used butter and eggs at room temperature. My only significant change - add 1 1/2 cups of finely ground pecans to stir in the mixture after the addition of flour. It gives the cookie a FABULOUS taste that distinctly sets it apart from the run of the mill chocolate chip cookie without defeating the purpose of baking a familiar comfort food. I also used milk chocolate chips, personal preference.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
Followed the instructions almost exactly (cooked for 8 minutes, then let sit on the pan for 2 more minutes to set), but mixed in a bag of crushed Heath chocolate bits before rolling the dough into balls. Heath bits are what make Snickerdoodles, in my opinion. They came out delicious this way!

Grilled Orange Chicken
I followed the recipe for the sauce exactly, but decided against even trying it on the chicken. I am sublimely curious as to why other people got different results. I used Smuckers orange marmalade, and I quadruple check the recipe proportions. The combination of the marmalade, vinegar, olive oil, and sage just looked revolting, like a black goop coated in oil. This didn't change when I warmed it in the saucepan as directed. I have no idea how black translates to orange chicken, but it smelled strongly of vinegar and just tasted strange. My husband ended up just dumping it in the sink while I was re-reading and re-reading the recipe. Neither of us can figure out why this happened and why it wasn't reported in other reviews, and we ultimately just found another recipe for orange-ish sauce on this website, which was still mediocre. My search for a good orange chicken recipe is still ongoing.
