German Chocolate Cake III
I made this for my step-dad's birthday today. It turned out great, but that could be because I made a few modifications to the recipe! I changed the 1/2 cup of water to 1/2 cup of strong coffee. I usually do this for any chocolatey recipe that calls for water. I also added 2 more ounces of chocolate. The cakes in the photos didn't look chocolatey enough for me. I also lightly toasted the coconut and pecans for the frosting. The cake turned out great. The texture was almost silky. I had an issue getting the cake out of the pans, but that was my own fault. I left the cake layers in the pans too long, which causes condensation on the bottom. So I kind of ripped the bottom out of a couple of layers. The frosting is another story. It tasted AMAZING. I don't even like German Chocolate cake and I LOVED it!!! However, it's so runny! I tried everything suggested in other reviews. I cooled it. I mixed vanilla pudding mix into it. Corn starch. Everything! It was just relentlessly runny. This sucked for several reasons. The obvious problem is my cake didn't look pretty. I made it for a birthday dinner, so I really wanted it to look nice. The other problem is the icing oozed out of the sides. So when I cut the cake, there wasn't much filling between layers. That really took away from the overall taste. So all in all, the cake was completely, totally perfect (with a few modifications). The frosting, although tasty, is impractical. I'll make it again, but use a different frosting.

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are some darn wonderful chocolate chip cookies! They are almost perfect! Great flavor and everyone I know loves them. I only have 3 issues with these cookies. First issue, the batter is nearly impossible to work with. It is nice and firm, however, it is so greasy that the chocolate chips will not stay. They slide down to the bottom of the batter and you end up with cookies that have tons of chocolate and cookies that hardly have any. Second issue, I found that the 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips was too much. I ended up having about a quarter of the bag left in the bottom of the bowl, and hated to throw them away. Third, if you like soft, chewy cookies, you might want to cut down on the baking time. However, these cookies are worth the trouble! They are melt-in-your-mouth yummy! Thanks so much for the recipe, Felix! They really are the best.
