Molasses Cookies
I learned something valuable today. I keep looking for different molasses/gingersnap cookie recipes and I need to stop doing that. I made this with the revisions that several people recommended. I wish I had added the 2nd t. of soda. Also, this cookie does not have enough flour. Most recipes like this have 2 1/4 cups of flour. Mine were flat. They were unappealing. The last few cookies I decided to add a big T of flour and mixed it in. The last 7 cookies looked normal; puffy and nice looking. The flavor was fine but if I made these again I would add 1/4 cup of flour.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes
Here's a couple of keys to this recipe - I took the advice of another reviewer and added vanilla. I put everything in the blender. I used cake flour and 2 T melted butter. The key to this recipe is to use a griddle - not a frying pan. A griddle helps immensely so you have the room to quickly slide a spatula under each pancake and flip it with ease. These are somewhat delicate so you would have to be very adept to do this in a frying pan. I used blueberries, a little butter and real maple syrup. This made enough for two people - we both enjoyed them and love the fact that it only had 1/3 cup of flour. You really don't even miss it. The texture is a little eggy, but not as thin as a crepe. We loved it and will make in the future!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops
Quick and delicious - I didn't have sage but I had poultry seasoning which has sage in it. I didn't have lemon peel but squeezed lemon juice into the egg mixture. If you refrain from making pork chops because they're usually dry and leathery, try these - super juicy and the topping stays put. Served with garlic toast and peas - excellent!
