Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I have made these cookies many, many times and everyone always loves them. They are soft, oh-so-chocolatey and absolutely delicious. I do usually have one small adjustment to the recipe: I use 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar instead of 1 1/2 cup white sugar. I found this makes the cookies even softer, and it's more in tradition with a chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have found, also, that you can substitue almond extract for vanilla (or a combination of the two) for a little variation on the flavor and it's still delicious. I'm going to go enjoy one of these babies now ;)

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
These cookies were fantastic for our sons' daycare Halloween party. All the children and the staff loved them and there were no leftovers come pick-up time. I skipped the red food coloring and went with raspberry jam to hold the "nails" on. The two cautions I will offer, as some other reviewers did, is 1) that you have to roll out the fingers SMALL and THIN or you'll get monster fingers--a raw cookie the length and thickness of your pinky will be the size of your middle finger upon baking--and 2) the salt is better left out, or you'll also get monster fingers. They will rise just fine, look and taste perfect without the salt.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This salmon/sauce combo was great! I even got my not-quite-three-year-old to take a couple bites and say, "It's yummy!" That's quite an accomplishment with the naturally strong flavor of salmon. I would agree with those who said the original recipe is WAY too much sauce--I halved the mayo and the mustard, coated the fillets all the way around and still had a little sauce left over (which I think it will be great on a ham sandwich later in the week!). I don't know what all the fuss is about with the mayo vs. yogurt, either; yes, yogurt is healthier, but I think in this case it's okay to splurge a little calorie-wise and go for the mayo like the recipe calls. The final flavor makes it all the more worth it!
