Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I normally make "Jay's pizza crust," from this site, and love it. This one also got good ratings, and was quicker/easier to make so I thought I would give it a shot. It was okay, and would do in a pinch, but it simply didn't compare. The major difference is in the texture, which greatly affects the pleasure of eating something. Jay's is much thicker, fluffier, and just "nicer to sink your teeth into"...a far better pizza crust texture (in our family's opinion). I wish it would have been better because it's easier to make, but I figure if I'm going to spend the time and money to make a good homemade pizza, I may as well do it right, and for us, that's Jay's.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake
If there is any problem with this recipe, it's the name. With a texture unlike anything I have tried before, it's not what anyone would think of when they think of "coffee cake." I think it ought to be called a "blueberry buckle cake" because that is exactly what it does...buckles in as it cools. That aside, it tastes amazing! As always, I followed the recipe exactly on my first attempt, and wouldn't change a thing. I have another one in the oven baking now, the first one was so good (both mine were bundt). Three warnings: One, the batter will be very thick and hard to spread in the pan. Two, it gets almost "goppy" when refrigerated (but if you microwave it for a few seconds, it's as good as new). Three, I wouldn't serve this if you are concerned with "presentation." It bakes up pretty in the oven, but looks quite sad once cooled. Those concerns aside, it tastes phenomenal! I even served it to a very picky brother, who found it tasty enough to eat most of it himself! :)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe yields a perfect chocolate chip cookie. I followed it JUST AS WRITTEN (except I halfed it and only baked each batch 9 minutes...for a tablespoon sized cookie). I have tried quite a few different chocolate chip cookie recipes, looking for perfection and just never seemed to find it. I do believe the search ends here! This will be my "go to" chocolate chip cookie recipe from now on. I thought the pudding mix would change the texture into something too cakelike, but it did not. It still has a great cookie texture, but it is soft and stays soft for days. And it bakes up into a perfect shape...doesn't spread too much or end up a "flat" cookie...great presentation! Also, no need to add extra salt (which I wondered about) because it is in the pudding mix. I can't imagine anyone couldn't love this cookie! Thanks to the submitter and to all the helpful reviewers who made me give this recipe a try! :)
