echo "<p>Your favorite flavor of ice cream is "; echo $flavor; echo ".</p>"; if ($flavor == "cookie dough") {echo "<p>Randy's favorite flavor is cookie dough, also!</p>"};

?>

try removing the semi colon at the end of your if statement. you should also probably place one after your echo statement inside the if statement just to be safe

<?php
$flavor = "chocolate";


echo "<p>Your favorite flavor of ice cream is ";
echo $flavor;
echo ".</p>";
if ($flavor == "cookie dough") {
    echo "<p>Randy's favorite flavor is cookie dough, also!</p>";
}

?>
