Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made two batches, and I made it exactly like the recipes says, and what was shown in the video. I found the dough wasn't wet enough, more flour-y, and these cookies never melted out like the photos depicted. I ended up making them in loose balls and flattening them out slightly with a spoon before baking them, and that's the best I could do with the consistency of this dough. These were just simply ok for me, and not spectacular. I levelled off the flour and I still thought it wasn't wet enough to melt out. I may have to read through all the reviews and see what others said before trying this again. Based on my experience, there must be better recipes out there. Sorry that this didn't work out....I made these for a cookie exchange and I just wasn't satisfied.

Baked Mushroom Thighs
Four stars only because I think adding a bit of white wine into the sauce really makes the recipe, then it's definitely a five star! I think I doubled the onion powder (accidentally) and added garlic powder and Summer Savoury spice (didn't have parsley). Bit of freshly ground pepper and the sauce was super yummy. Again, the white wine gave this meal a restaurant- quality taste. The thighs I had we're quite large so 45 min at 350 didn't work for me. I'll be trying 400 for 30 to start with next time (or 375 for 45 min). Good base of a recipe, though.

Deviled Eggs
I made a dozen if these. I added a lot more dressing to make it more creamy than chunky. Maybe as much as 1/4 cup, but seeing as I was eyeing the texture as I added, I'm not exactly sure. With the mustard, I added about teaspoon or even 1/2 tablespoon, at least. Again, went by colour and feel. I didn't measure out the paprika, rather sprinkled it creatively on top. Instead of spooning the mixture, I threw the mix into a Wilton pastry plastic bag and used Wilton open star tip #32 to pipe in the mixture onto the egg. Presentation factor goes up a few notches! Thanks for the instructions on how to boil eggs properly! I put about 1 tablespoon of vinegar into the water so that the eggs would not crack and the whites spill out. For extra measure, I also added some extra salt into the water, in case that helped in peeling them (can't say it did though!)
