Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies (taste wise) were good, but just an average, run to the mill, good. They looked VERY nice though! I really like the texture - crispy around the edges, but chewy in the middle. I did double the salt (as suggested by another reviewer) and put in about half a teaspoon of vanilla in place of the hot water. I also put in a heaping teaspoon of baking soda and almonds instead of walnuts. I plan to try this again, because since I did change the recipe some it probably altered the taste from what it originally tasted like. All in all, I think the finished product is going to taste DELICIOUS dipped in a glass of cold milk! :)

Creamy Chocolate Frosting
This is a very delicious recipe! I didn't have any evaporated milk on hand, so I took the advice of another reviewer, and just used regular milk. I also did not measure out the milk, but poured about 3 tablespoons of milk into the bowl. My mom used to run a home owned bakery and she would put a pinch or two of salt in the frosting. This helps to make it not quite so sickeningly sweet. The frosting was a tiny bit on the runny side, but that might have been because I didn't use evaporated milk. I was using this frosting on cupcakes, so it didn't really matter to me that it was slightly runny, and it was also easier to squeeze out of the pastry bag. I really like how easy it is to whip this up, and I almost always have these ingredients on hand. I will probably use this again when I need a quick chocolate frosting recipe!

Easy Guacamole
This is DELICIOUS!!! I took the advice of another review and used about two tablespoons of salsa instead of the tomato and onion. I didn't even wait for it to chill and it was still really yummy! Definitly will be using this recipe when I need a guacamole recipe!
