Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
These are good with modifications. I took other reviewer's advice about adding an extra egg, increasing the sugar to 3/4c (instead of 1/2c) and adding 1/2c of sour cream. I didn't have sour cream, so I added 1/2c of extra liquid (orange juice and marsala wine). In retrospect, I think 1/2c of oil would've been a better add-in, since the only source of fat in this recipe is the butter used to melt the chocolate.

Cinnamon Rolls II
This was my first batch of homemade cinnamon rolls ever. Although I went through the preparation rather hurriedly (compared to some of the other reviewers), they came out really moist and delicious. I will definitely be making them again and taking the other reviewers' suggestions.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie
This was the first coconut cream pie that I've ever tried, and one of the best ones I've ever tasted. However, I think there was a step missing in the cooking directions. In order to get the filling to come out smooth and get rid of the flour clumps, I mixed the filling ingredients in my stand mixer at medium speed until all the clumps were gone, then transferred the mixture to a pot to cook it. Also, for an elegant touch, I added a split Tahitian vanilla bean to the mixture as it was heating. The vanilla flavor really brought out the flavor of this pie. Lastly, I like a lot of cream on my coconut cream pie and found that 1 cup of whipped topping was not enough. I used an entire 8 oz. package of Extra Creamy Cool Whip and barely covered it. I'd advise using more.
