Snickerdoodles I
These were delightful! Nice and puffy, and chewy in the middle. I live in Denver, and used 3 cups of flour to compensate for the altitude.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I
So I started making this recipe, and realized that the grater was being difficult, so I just chopped the zucchini up into itty bitty pieces with a knife instead. I ended up having closer to 3 cups then 2, but I figured it would make the recipe more zucchini-tastic, so I added it all anyhow. I was feeling saucy, so rather then using 2 cups of white sugar, I did 1 cup white and 1 cup brown. I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate, so I kinda took the idea from the Chocolate Zucchini Bread II recipe and used 1/4 cup cocoa powder instead. Now here's the bad part: when I got to the point where I needed to add in the flour, I realized that I only had 1 cup's worth left. I just didn't feel like going to the grocery store (it was late) or harassing someone else to go to the grocery store (I'm entirely too nice for my own good), so I cracked open a package of brownie mix and used a cup of that instead, figuring that brownie mix is probably mostly flour anyhow....right? So I baked it for 60 min and the result was rather like an English pudding crossed with, well, brownie. Crusty on top, and really moist in the middle, with random globs of chocolate and zucchini. My mutant concoction in no way resembled what this recipe was supposed to look like in the end, but it went fabulous with vanilla ice cream!

Chocolate Fudge Cookies
These cookies were the epitome of deliciousness, especially considering how incredibly easy they were to make! I will definitely be making these again.
