Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
This recipe is great by itself, though of course after making it a few times I felt the need to try some changes. I do use all butter (but mainly because I always have it, while I don't always have shortening). I also use pumpkin pie spice and extra cinnamon. The BIGGEST change I have made though is that I use a mixture of golden raisins, cranberries, and dried cherries. I used to HATE oatmeal raisin cookies until I discovered that if I soak my dried fruit in a mixture of egg, vanilla, and the spices for at least a day before using they are extra moist and juicy and completely change the texture. I make the cookies this way and call them "oatmeal fruit and nut cookies". AMAZING.

Original Nestle(R) Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies
This really is the best cookie recipe. I have used this for years and ALWAYS get rave reviews. The ONLY thing I change about it is that I use a little more vanilla and salt and then I ALWAYS chill my dough for a few hours before I make the cookies. They are always SUPER soft that way and stay soft for WEEKS. I sent some to my brother in the service in Iraq and he said when they arrive (two weeks later) they were STILL soft. :-)

Szechwan Shrimp
I really didn't care for this at all. I wish I could offer more of an opinion, but I'm honestly not sure what it was about it I disliked so much... it turned out fine and my husband said it was "okay", but the leftovers sat uneaten in my fridge until we threw them out.
