Congealed Chicken Salad
I was personally shocked by how good this was! I've never tried anything like it and wouldn't have this time if I didn't need a salad for my cooking club meeting tomorrow morning. If it's half as good firm as it is straight out of the bowl, it's sure to be a hit. My husband, who hates chicken salad, is licking the bowl as I type! I followed the recipe with a couple changes: I used low fat cream cheese and 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup. I also used pickle relish instead of chopped sweet pickle.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Just one more big 5-star rating for this wonderful cookie. I didn't have any butter on hand, so I substituted butter-flavored shortening, and I only had 1 cup of mini chocolate chips on hand. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. The dough was not runny. I did not chill it. My eggs were straight from the fridge. I used one shiny metal pan and one dark non-stick pan. They all came out the same. I don't know why some recipes turn out and some don't. But this brought thick, crinkly-topped, chewy chocolate chip cookies I will definitely be making again!

Quick and Easy Crab Rangoon Dip
My whole family really enjoyed this dip! I've now used the cream cheese mixture in several other recipes with great results!
