Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy
Two things: The cookie is great, and I hate to modify recipes the first time, but I just couldn't bear to put in a whole cup of butter, with my daughter trying to lose weight and my cholesterol too high. Several reviewers also mentioned that the coconut flavor was too mild, and I happened to have a jar of virgin coconut oil (firm, same texture and use as butter, but much healthier), so I used half butter, and half coconut oil. Cookie not only came out perfect but it had the extra coconut flavor it needed and that I love. The recipe didn't say what type of brown sugar to use, so I used dark brown. Otherwise, recipe made as written. I used unsweetened coconut, so I did add all the sugar as stated in the recipe. To make them look pretty, however, instead of dropping them on a baking sheet, I used a two tablespoon scoop and smoothed the edges so they weren't shaggy. (I got 66 cookies, and 11 to 12 minutes worked for me, but ladies, no need for times. Everyone's oven bakes differently. What may be a great time for you and me, could still be raw or even overdone for someone else. So we really shouldn't ever state that someone else should bake them a certain time, because that time was good for your oven.) Anyway, the cookies came out picture pretty, and nice and thick and looked and tasted great.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Passed the test! Besides the adults, the picky 13 year old boy and the picky 8 year old girl thought they were soooooo good. I goofed and never noticed it said "quick cooking oats". I used my regular Quaker oats, and they STILL came out soft, round, and delicious. I did not flatten before baking. Cookies came out perfect.

Salmon Patties I
I went the Pam route on this recipe in a non-stick pan and had absolutely no trouble with it. The patties browned and did not stick. I adjusted the recipe for health's sake using eggbeaters, and whole wheat bread crumbs with my own seasoning, and a little parsley. Very tasty and easy.
