Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
Excellent recipe! I made it for Christmas dinner and received rave reviews! I made two changes: I used yams, not sweet potatoes, and quite a bit more than the recipe called for (5 large yams, which came to probably 7 or 8 cups, rather than 4). I also kept the pecans whole, rather than chopped, which made it look really elegant. Everyone loved it -- I've already been asked to bring it next year. Thanks!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
Just nibbling on my first bite out of the oven. These are delicious! Plenty spicy IMO, and we have pretty heavy spice-tolerance in our household. I substituted 1 stick unsalted butter for the margarine called for by the recipe, and I did use blackstrap molasses, which IMO makes these marvelous and rich flavored -- but I tend to prefer my cookies with a little 'bite' of bitterness (think Oreos without the filling), so the blackstrap was great for that. Healthy, too. You definitely can't skip the chilling-in-the-fridge stage, or the dough is too sticky, but with a very small dusting of flour, the chilled dough rolled out beautifully. Remember not to roll it too thin, too, because your cookies will be crispy and brittle; thicker cookies are better here. This one's going into the annual-recipes box!!! Thanks!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
This was lovely, quick and easy. I left the milk out in order to have a stiffer frosting. Worked beautifully for piping. I made 1.5 times this recipe -- 3 cups sugar, 3/4 cup butter. It was JUST enough to cover 2 layers of a 9-inch round cake, with a tiny bit left over for piping. If you're doing a lot of piping (multiple colors, etc.), you might want to make a double batch. Definitely keeping this one for future cake-baking; no more store-bought frosting for me!!!
