Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
This is our favorite cookie. I make it several times a month for my family. My husband, who doesn't have a terrible sweet tooth, is constantly asking me to makes these! I have also given them to friends when I cook a meal for them. I can't tell you how many times I've been asked to share the recipe. The only 2 things I've changed: 1) I use White Whole Wheat Flour, 2) I usually omit the walnuts (b/c my husband prefers it that way). I don't ever cook/bake with AP flour, so I don't know how different it tastes. All I know is that WWW Flour is AWESOME!

Tangy Chicken Fajitas
The only thing I changed was adding less vinegar. I'm not sure if this affected the taste in this way, but it was a bit "limey." So, when I make again, I'll use a bit less lime. Otherwise, great taste and recipe. I made these and put them in warmed tortilla with cheese, sour cream and home made guacamole. I halved the recipe but I wish I hadn't. We all wanted more after the two we ate!

Spaghetti Carbonara II
If I could, I'd rate 4.5, but I rounded up. This is a great recipe and I tweaked a bit based on other reviewrs. I'm a turkey bacon fan but I used the real stuff this time. When it was done, I added one chicken breast to the bacon grease. When I added the onion I also added a half bag of frozen peas- we like peas especially with bacon. I did add the wine too. I've been adding a little splash to many recipes here and there and I haven't been disapointed yet. The last change I made was mixing the eggs and cheese together then pouring over the noodle mix. Also, I used just a little parmesan and in its place I used an Italian cheese mix. I prefer this over parmesan. Didn't add any pepper or salt at the end nor did I have any parsley. My whole family (including three kids under 4)ate this up. I must admit, I've never had carbonara until tonight. I was wanting Italian takeout and this fit the bill. DH and I ate the left overs for lunch the next day. It's in my rotation!
