Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread
I did as others suggested and doubled the spices and added 1/2 cup of applesauce. I should have done as one reviewer suggested and not used blackstrap molasses. It was all I had, and I hoped it wouldn't make a difference...but it did. It made the cake very bitter, and I would not use that form of molasses in the future. My husband thinks the cake is fine, and I made it for him, so it's all good.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these for my husband, and he says they were great. They hadn't cooled down yet, so I can't say how soft they are when they're cool, but so far they've been a big hit. I made them pretty large and got 30 cookies out of the batch. Thanks!

Quick Gnocchi
Having never had gnocchi before, I guess I can't really compare this to the "real" thing. But I think it turned out really well, although a little soft for use in the chicken and gnocchi soup recipe on this site. Maybe there was just too much chicken and other vegetables, but the gnocchis got a bit mushed. Or maybe I didn't add enough flour to the mix, so they were too "mashed potatoey" to hold up. Next time, I'll add more flour. The flavor was great, maybe because I used a package of the garlic and cheddar instant potatoes. I think I'll try the herbed version next time.
