Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
Wow, these are soo good! We can't eat dairy so substituted coconut oil instead of butter, and we also use brown sugar and whole wheat flour. So delicious and perfect texture. There are only four of us so I only made a dozen and then dropped the rest on cookie sheets in balls and froze them, then once frozen put them in a ziploc baggie. These cook really well from frozen too and it's nice to be able to just pull out half a dozen whenever we have a chocolate craving and throw them in the oven.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
I agree with others who said this has too much sugar. I put in a cup and thought it was sweet enough for our tastes. I ended up putting in a small amount more plus about 1-2 tsp of corn starch just for consistency (since icing sugar has corn starch added to it). I refrigerated it, and it thickened up perfectly and tasted fabulous on our lemon cake.

Holy Trinity Chili
We have this chili all the time, but with some changes. I've never had chili without beans personally, and bacon makes everything better. I use dried beans (about 1 1/2 cups of dried beans equals the right amount when soaked, and I'll mix up pinto, kidney, white, black, etc.) and omit the sugar completely. I add about a tablespoon of cocoa powder. We make two batches at a time, one in each crockpot (though we brown the meat and onions/garlic on the stove top), and one will have less chili peppers than the other, in order to accomodate varying tastes. We freeze any extra and it freezes and reheats very well.
