Asparagus Quiche
This is the ONLY quiche recipe I use. It's SO good. Sometimes I switch out the filling/cheese with other things, but as long as you keep the egg/half&half ratio the same, it will turn out every time.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
This is by far the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever come across. I've also tried the top rated one on this site with the instant pudding mix in it, but this one FAR outshines that one. The trick to not having flat cookies is definitely letting the dough sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours before baking. I rounded mine into 1 TBSP balls, slightly flattened them, and baked them on a Silpat for 12 minutes, precisely. The result were the most amazing, crispy (but chewy on the inside) cookies that I have ever made. I was so impressed with this recipe that I will pass it down through my family for generations to come!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I
I absolutely ADORE this recipe. I was trying to find a recipe that might come out like my grandmother's pound cake, and this is the one. This has the taste that I grew up with and oh my goodddddd... it's perfect. I used this to make a wedding cake and it was the perfect consistency to cover with fondant.
