Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
fantastic recipe for your basic chocolate chip cookies. I prefer to use large semi sweet chips versus the tiny ones. as one reviewer advised, you don't need to mix the warm water and soda. doing so, increase the vanilla t o one tablespoon. also, I've used the standard half white/half Brown sugar and I've used all Brown sugar. the results were better using all Brown sugar. when taking the batter to the baking sheet, I used a tablespoon and used rounded tablespoon size balls to my foil lined baking sheets. as ovens vary, you will have to find your perfect timing. just so happens mine is 12 & a half minutes. the recipe states it yield 24 servings but my rounded tablespoon portion yields about 36.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
This cake is without a doubt a perfect chocolate lover's dream. It was moist and outstanding to rave reviews from my family. I baked in 2 round cake pans instead of bundt cake. 350 degrees apx 34 minutes. I used 3/4 cup oil vs 1 cup oil. Substituted warm STRONG coffee for water. Didn't quite use all of the chocolate chips. Important to use the mini chips. Spray your pans with baking spray all over and the cake releases without trouble. I disagree with the reviews stating no frosting necessary. I whipped up 2 batches of chocolate buttercream: stick of butter, box of powder sugar, cap or two of vanilla and several Tablespoons of cocoa powder. Beat with a few tsp of milk for smoothing texture. When you frost, paint each cake with simple syrup. Generously fill the center and thin coat the double layer cake--thin enough to still see cake. Chill in the fridge--this is called your crumb layer and the syrup ensures moisture. After the crumb layer is set, frost the rest of the cake. You will be the star of the dessert table!
