My cooking tragedies
I once worked very hard to make a fabulous chocolate torte, only to realize I had left out the melted chocolate! Ended up having to run out for more ingredients & bake an entire new cake.

Robbi's M&M Cookies
I did half butter, half shortening, creamed the butter/shortening and sugar before adding the egg, and put it in the fridge for a few hours before baking. They turned out beautifully. Not too thin, not too thick. If you really want to reduce spreading, scoop cookies on to parchment paper and put in the freezer for 15 min to overnight, then straight in the oven. They might take an extra minute or two to be done, but won't spread nearly as much. The family is loving them. I've heard they are "phenomenal" and "better than the store bakery ones" which I'll take as a compliment. :)

Healthy Banana Cookies
I made a lot of changes to this based on other reviews, so I want to warn others what to watch out for. I did not have dates or raisins, so I replaced with chopped apple. Really needed the extra texture and sweetness a dried fruit would have added. I also substituted apple sauce for the oil, which I think was okay. Texture was good, but despite adding honey, cinammon, and allspice they were missing flavor. That being said, my 2 and 4 year old still ate them up for breakfast. I will make them again, just didn't love those changes.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies
These are one of my favorite cookies, but DO NOT leave out the brandy! I use brandy flavored extract and it is the little difference that makes this cookie!
