Alton Brown's "The Chewy" - the BEST chocolate chip cookie (gluten-free) [Tips from another pinner: Cream the butter instead of melting it as you would normally for cookies (or try with browned butter?). Maybe add 1/2 c. more flour for the right consistency. Chilling the dough is essential before baking.]
Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit and soak for 10 minutes. Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding. I do this with strawberries and they last for weeks!
