Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
This is my second update: PLEASE NOTE: I submitted this recipe and want to make sure that people understand what it is and what it isn't. This is frosting -- it's NOT meant to be piped like buttercream icing. If you can get it to the consistency that will pipe -- great -- but my own experience is that it will probably "break" if beaten that much. Secondly, my comment about "leaving it out" doesn't mean to leave it out overnight or for a long period of time -- dairy shouldn't be left out long term, as many reviewers have noted. The comment was meant to compare this frosting to standard whipped cream frosting which starts to "fade" very quickly and can be problematic. If you're set on trying to use this as decoration instead of just the frosting I meant it as, you may want to try adding some Confectioners (XXX or 10X) sugar. That should help to stiffen it . Also, using chilled beaters and bowls is always a good idea when working with dairy. Hope you enjoy! Happy baking!

Seven Layer Dip I
Great dip! I used packaged taco seasoning when browning the meat. I also used a standard 9 x 13 baking dish that has its own basket for serving. Best served at room temp; when it's cold there's just no scooping it without destroying the tortilla chips. Be sure to have several spoons at hand so guests can scoop the dip onto their desired chip!

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip
Excellent dip but MUST be kept warm or it will still be left over at the end of your party! I find that I have good luck setting out a double batch in my small crockpot, set on Keep Warm. Pita chips or tortilla chips are what most folks want with this!
