Peppermint Meringues
These were so easy and pretty. I piped mine with a pastry bag then sprinkled crushed candy canes on them. I did add the teeniest amount of extract to the first batch and I wish I hadn't. It gave them a weird aftertaste. The others were fine and melted in your mouth.

Popularity Cookies
I have made these twice so far and both times they have disappeared in no time! They are so easy to make and taste just like my favorite...Heath Bars! You'd never guess they were made with saltines.

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad
I really loved this salad. The only thing I changed was the oil & vinegar. I used olive oil and balsamic vinegar, but other than that I followed it according to the recipe. I think the more it set, the better it tasted. Besides a small bowl eaten by my daughter, I wound up devouring the whole thing myself over a couple of days.
