Chef John's Italian Meatballs
I made these tonight for my husband's birthday dinner tomorrow evening. I plan on popping them into the crockpot with my sauce tomorrow afternoon just before dinner. I, of course, had to try them, and these are absolutely 100% the BEST meatballs I have ever had - EVER. They're full of flavor - not at all dry or heavy. I'm hoping that my double batch leaves us with lots of leftovers after the in laws leave because I definitely want to pop some in the freezer for a quick and easy meal on a busy weeknight. I did use the beef broth in place of the milk, and will probably continue to prepare these the same way. Out of this world delicious! MINOR CHANGES: We aren't really a fan of heat with our spaghetti & meatballs, so I left out the red pepper flakes. To make up for the lack of the additional layer of flavoring, I did double the Italian Seasoning.

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting
This is a fabulous icing. It's rich and chocolatey, and can easily be adapted depending on which type of fudge sauce you use. I've made it twice now - one with more of a milk chocolate flavor using a homemade batch of chocolate syrup, and it was great. Just got done with my second batch - I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder & Smucker's Special Recipe Hot Fudge Sauce - quite delicious and has a deeper, dark chocolate richness that I'm hoping will be even better tomorrow.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
This makes a pretty decent tasting chocolate chip cookie; however, there is absolutely nothing chewy about it. I made this twice to give it a second chance, didn't make any changes to the recipe. They are thin, crispy cookies as soon as they cool down. Good if that's what you're going for, but not for us. Probably a 2 1/2, but since we can't do halves, I'll give it a 3.
