Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Wow! The only things I changed: added 1/4 tsp. of cream of tartar and let the cookie dough sit overnight. By far the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and I've made a few. I don't understand the reviewer who thought these were too floury. They came together and baked up perfectly.

Homemade Shake and Bake Mixture
I joined just to rate this (but I should have joined years ago). I have made this just as written many times and my husband loves it! It's so much less expensive and better tasting than the commercial brand. To those who worried about throwing away the excess: just freeze it! I make a very large batch and keep it in the freezer. I take out just what I need (it won't freeze solid). I like to use this on bone-in chicken so I cook it at 350 degrees for about an hour (and I write that on the Ziplock bag).
