MMMMM... Brownies
These are the best brownies I have ever had! Ooey and gooey without being store bought!! The crispy edges and top are my favourite part. Will definitely use this recipe for many many things! (used them to make peppermint white chocolate coated brownie pops!)

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
For those of you having texture problems, take into account where you live and your elevation above sea level. Also, in certain parts of the USA (California mainly) there are unique yeasts in the air that will be incorporated into your dough - if you leave the dough in the fridge for a few hours, this can cause your cookies to 'rise' (even if you can't see it there may be many tiny air bubbles in your dough) and give that cake-y texture. If you have problems like this frequently make sure you don't over-mix your dough and buy a locally-made cook book with tried and true recipes from your particular area. Hope this helps :)

Split Pea and Ham Soup I
my first time making ham and split pea soup and what an AMAZING recipe!! I was nervous that mine wouldn't taste as good as my boyfriend's mother's and he says this soup is THE BEST he's ever had (yes - better than his mom's!) I followed the directions using chopped ham, added some potato cubes, bay leaves, and pepper to taste. about an hour into cooking I also added a can of summer sweet peas for looks, texture and color. I substituted most of the water for low sodium chicken broth and didn't have any troubles with saltiness (also a great option for people with blood pressure concerns). I didn't soak the peas and my soup cooked to a perfect consistency in just about 90 minutes on the stove-top at medium-low heat. stirring often helps keep a good consistency throughout cooking and prevents big clumps or sticking. Couldn't ask for a more simple and DELICIOUS recipe! also re-heats nicely on the stove or in the microwave for a quick and delicious meal. I added more veggies while re-heating to freshen things up. Also served with some garlic toast instead of adding garlic to the soup. Yummy and a definite staple recipe in my kitchen!
