Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
I made this recipe except as I was mixing the ingredients, I realized I didn't have any raisins. I also chose to leave the walnuts out as this was a gift and I wanted to be safe. I made a 9 inch 2 layer cake and there was enough left over for 5 cupcakes (which I was able to sample). Can I just say this was amazing? The taste was perfect - moist and delicious.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I have been making Nestle's Tollhouse cookie recipe for 20+ years. However, this recipe is so unbelievable, I will never look back. The cookies baked perfectly and evenly. They were chewy with a tad bit of crunch around the edges. I made the recipe as is with no adjustments.

Whole Egg Mayonnaise
The first time I made this the consistency was perfect as I streamed in the oil. Then I decided to kick my blender into high gear and that turned it watery. I went back to the reviews and discovered that that was a no-no. So, I tried again (while my family waited patiently for BLTs). This time I halved the recipe, used canola oil instead of vegetable oil (does that matter?) and turned the blender to medium and left it there while I streamed in the oil. This time the texture was perfect but I was honestly a nervous wreck that I would waste so many ingredients again! Upon taste, it was extremely bland. I would prefer a sauce with more tang. I'm going to use it still; maybe look around the world wide web and see how I can adjust this recipe to my liking! ;)
