Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Excellent recipe. i modified slightly by using a muffin tin (non-stick). i put a thin layer of cookie dough, then put a FunSize Hershey bar down, then covered with thin layer of cookie dough. it filled each muffin mold about 1/2-3/4, don't put too much in. They stay chewy and EVERY bite has chocolate. plus it is easier to mix without the chips. i probably increased the vanilla by a touch, i like vanilla.

Easy Meatloaf
My wife loved it. i messed up and mixed all the wet ingredients then folded in the meat, bread crumbs, etc. I did not realize the ketchup (i used spaghetti sauce) and mustard were for the glaze, oops! but it still tasted great and no harm no foul. i only baked for about 30-35 minutes because i modified the recipe by putting the meatloaf into a muffin pan. it made 16 meatloaf muffins and they are easier to handle and portion out. ensure you butter (or spray) the pan beforehand for easier removal. i'll be making this again soon. it is going into the rotation.

Pizza Crust for Bread Machine
very simple to make, very common ingredients except perhaps selmolina. i don't know what it is but my wife, who is German, always has Griess around so it worked out. i also added Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Thyme, Oregano, and freshly ground Black Pepper to the flour so the flavors are built into the crust. also i split the dough into two pieces to make two thinner pizzas vs. one larger one and the smaller pizzas aren't THAT small OR thin. one trick i did was bake the crusts (alone) for about 1.5 - 2 minutes each side before applying sauce and toppings. AND ensure you flour your surfaces well when working the dough or you will end up with a very UGLY (but tasty) pizza blob. the first pancake is always the worst and i've learned my lesson well. ENJOY!!
