Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Not my favorite. They didn't seem flavorful enough to me. Not sure what needs to change, but not willing to tweak to find out.

Garlic Feta Dip
A treat! I used about 3/4C Greek yogurt (no need to drain as it's thick enough) in place of yogurt/sour cream, then a good amount of dill. The 2 garlic cloves really overpowered the dip over time. Next time I'll reduce to 1, and also press before adding to the processor. The blade didn't do a good job of pulverizing.

Miso Soup
Common way of making Miso using granules. A couple of notes from my own experience...I use 1T miso for every cup of dashi (i.e. the broth). This makes it easier for me to remember the ratio. When using silken tofu, look for the Extra Firm Silken Tofu. You want that restaurant quality creamy tofu experience but you also want the block to hold up. Extra Firm Silken does this. Finally, I add a bit of rehydrated wakame (seaweed) as well. A little wakame goes a long way as it expands greatly. Rehydrate with boiling water in a separate vessel, drain, and add to the end soup.
