Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
I was very nervous about these cookies! I had cut the recipe roughly in half because I didn't need to make as many as the recipe yielded. The batter was rather dry when I was done mixing it all so I added a couple tablespoons of butter which helped a little. I lumped them onto a non-stick cookie sheet (get a REALLY good one or two) and they actually turned out really great! They got rave reviews at my office. BUT do keep an eye on them in the oven. They brown very quickly. But yes, super moist on the inside and perfectly crisp (but not too much) on the edges. I plan on giving a lot of baked goods away as gifts for Christmas and I think these have made it into the gift queue!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
This bread is such a hit! I added chopped pecans and chocolate chips. It was gloriously devoured by everyone. I also brushed the top with the brown sugar/water mixture. OH and I covered it with foil while baking so the top didn't brown so much. It also didn't take the full hour to bake for me. I checked it about 45-50 minutes and it was ready! I think I'm going to make a bunch of these for Christmas gifts!

Salad Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Not too shabby! Was definitely a hit at my workplace's holiday party. I nixed the meat to make it vegetarian friendly. I also nixed the dressing and instead brought a few different dressings for people to choose from. It worked really well because the shells would catch any seeping dressing and people appreciated having the choice. The onion was a little overpowering, but overall, what a fun way to present! OH, I highly recommend using a deviled egg tray like in the photo...otherwise, it can be a little difficult to present.
