    I use the Nestle Recipe (minus the nuts) Substitute half of the all purpose flour for whole wheat flour (not to be healthy but adds texture and nuttiness) and use the experts method (minus the smoking) and use semi-sweet chocolate chips and bake at 375 until golden brown, best chocolate chip cookies!

    How bout chocolate cake ?
    Remember to add some stout and chunks of dark cocolate to give that strong flavor, also use dutch chocolate powder instead of natural cocoa

    If you slightly caramelize sugar, would it take on traits similar to the brown sugar? I saw how you can do it with blocks of sugar in your oven, which maintains the normal sugar structure.
    Mac and Cheese would be an interesting episode, especially informing people about bagged shredded cheese vs cheese from the deli.

    "Food scientist" claims that wrong proportions creates variation in cookies, that weighing will solve the humidity problem, and that it was the type rather than the shape of the chocolate that created layers in the cookie. Maybe just bad editing?

    I'm watching this video and I'm like...why is my recipe so different?
    I use margarine not butter(room temp never melted), only ever use brown sugar, I use rum extract not vanilla, never use salt, never use baking powder or soda, ALWAYS sift the flour, (chill the dough for an hour before shaping)
    Have my grandma, my mother, and I been doing it weird all our lives?

    If you don’t melt your butter, you don’t have to freeze your cookies 24 hours. If you need room temp butter, try to defrost button on your microwave. Just refrigerate your cookies 20 minutes before baking and roll them into balls before refrigerating. You can also replace some of the butter with cream cheese. Yum.

    What they should do to make this show a little more interesting. Is to have them share each other's made dishes. To see what the three levels think of each other's food. And then maybe even give some tips to improve the level 1 and level 2 or to give the level three a method in doing something that they made out of thought of or is traditionally accepted

    I didn't understand the argument with the volume vs. weight for the ingredients. If the flour has more moisture that also changes the weight... right?

    But how much do the bakery cookies COST? A lot, I'll bet. You pay (and pay) for the extra time, effort, and ingredients.

    Why is it always the black girl who is seen as the worst cook of the three? For god sake, at least put her at level 2 or 3 and trade off with one of the other two. Lorenzo should be 3 and the white girl should be level one. Racism is so rampant. I can't believe this is honestly not talked about more. Thumbs down for me.
