Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
This recipe really does give you big, fat, chewy, cookies. My first tip is to not overmix. The recipe relies on the lightness of the mixture, so do not beat it to a pulp. When it says to fold in the chocolate chips, gently fold them in. My next tip is about chocolate. Typically I don't feel the need to alter recipes, however, if you want even better cookies, spend the extra dollar and use Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips. It picks up the tablespoon of vanilla, which is what makes this recipe stand out in the first place. The milky-ness and vanilla work perfectly together. Also, the chips are larger than most semi-sweet chips, meaning your large cookie is evenly distributed with chocolate. Finally, make sure you check them a little before the 15 minutes is up. This cookie is the best when it just reaches "cooked."

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
You may search through the reviews and try one of the alterations, however, you will be extremely satisfied if you follow the original recipe. I used a large muffin pan and they came out big, fluffy, with a great crunchy top. The only tip I have is for frozen blueberries. If you wish to use them, put the frozen blueberries (do not defrost) in a strainer and rinse them until the water is clear. Dump them carefully onto a paper towel, gently pick up the excess water by rolling/patting/etc., and then run them through the strainer again. Repeat this process until the the frozen blueberries do not leave purple stains on your paper towel. It's okay if a little comes off. Then, dump the blueberries into your final mix, and fold in. Since you went through the straining process, your mix shouldn't be dyed purple. Finally, as my last tip, go with this recipe rather than the "Healthier to die for blueberry muffins." That recipe is falsely advertised, and it is marginally better. You are here because you want to make muffins, so don't settle for a few grams difference in fat and sugar. Make the real thing.
