Hot Chocolate Mix
Very good and easy! I took note of what a previous reviewer said about cheaper powdered milk being more granular, and since the cheap stuff is what I had on hand, I put the dry milk in the blender first and made it into a nice, fine powder. Then I blended the rest of the ingredients in with it (I also used powdered sugar instead of granulated). My husband usually turns up his nose at homemade cocoa mix, but I think with the smooth texture of this method he might actually approve (and hooray for going without the artificial sweeteners and other garbage they hide in the store-bought stuff!)

Applesauce Bars
YUM!! I added a cup of shredded zucchini to these which was wonderful, and I slightly altered the frosting by cutting the sugar back a little and replacing the milk with sour cream. I am making these again as soon as we empty the pan!

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad
YUM! The taste deserves 5 stars, but I think the need for tweaking requires a star drop. I followed reviewer advice and cut mayo and sugar in half (though kept vinegar as written), which made it perfect. I also omitted eggs and added raisins and green onions. We gobbled it up!!
