Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Thin, chewy, perfect. Will be a bit puffy when you take them out of the oven, and will shrink to nice, flat wrinkly goodness.

Grecian Pork Tenderloin
Wow. Packed with flavor. I used fresh oregano and baked it in the oven (350 deg, 45 min), and it was fantastic. I even used bottled lime juice and jarred garlic, and it was still fantastic. If you're looking for a prettier presentation and are using the oven, I'd recommend searing it in a pan first... Oh, I did end up marinating it for 24 hours as well, for what that's worth.

Apple Dumpling Cake
This turned out really well. The topping has a nice crunch, it's very apple-y (I used Cortland apples), and I added a bit more cinnamon than called for. I also did not peel the apples, just washed really well and cut the apples by hand into relatively thick slices. I cut the slices with apple skin into quarters, so there wouldn't be long strands of apple skin--and that worked very well. I do hate throwing out the skins of fruits/vegetables when it can be avoided--especially when there's quite a bit of nutrition to be had there. It was moist, tasty, crunchy on top, very easy to make and did not require much cleanup. Who could ask for more?
