Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
We really like this recipe. I usually grab a messy spoonful, about the size of a golf ball. I don't flatten it or anything. The cookies come out beautifully lumpy and the perfect thickness. Oh, and a little trick I learned to make them look more like the "pretty" bakery cookies: after you form them but before you put them in the oven, poke 2-4 more chocolate chips onto the tops of the cookies, to break up any "plain dough" areas.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas
I really like these enchiladas (but I haven't really tried many others, so I can't say if they're "the best" or not...) WHAT I DID DIFFERENTLY: I used 8-inch flour tortillas instead of corn and managed to fill 8 of them. So I'm surprised the original recipe only calls for SIX 6-inch corn tortillas! Also, I used 2 8x8 pans so I could serve one for dinner and freeze one for later. So 4 enchiladas in each. NEXT TIME: I'll try the suggestions of skipping the chicken broth, or just adding half of it. Like others have already said, it took a LONG time for the sauce to reduce; simmered for almost 2 hours but still measured at slightly over 3 cups when I started assembling everything. But at that point, at least it was already thick enough. Will also try using just milk to heat/coat the tortillas instead of heavy cream...

Shrimp in Sherry Cream Sauce
I liked this well enough--reminded me of something I'd have at Olive Garden or similar restaurant. My husband liked the sauce but not the shrimp. My 16-yr-old exchange student liked the shrimp but not the sauce. Go figure. So I compromised and gave it 3 stars...
