Fluffy Pancakes
this was a simple and great recipe for pancakes. i added about 2 tablespoons of Pure Vanilla Extract and about tablespoon of cinnamon, but other than that the recipe was followed. Also i substituted a tablespoon of lemon for the vinegar for the curdling. i would HIGHLY advise following the medium heat or they will burn. Also make the first and second pancakes small to test out the heat, and while edible, the first ones don't come out nearly as well as later pancakes.

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.
