Yummy Pecan Pralines
I followed the recipe EXACTLY, and will warn you that "Heat without stirring (over medium heat) . . ." will leave a burned layer on the bottom of your pan! I did use dark brown sugar as the recipe didn't specify between dark or light brown. These came out chewy rather than "first bite crispy then melt in your mouth" that I'm used to. If I still can't find my lost "go to" recipe and make this again, next time I'll use light brown sugar and give it an occasional stir until soft ball stage reached. The amount of pecans seemed just fine; it's just a matter of preference.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting
I made the cocoa version, but took followed another reviewer's suggestion and substituted one cup of the water with one cup of hot coffee. It came out light brown in color and "fluffy". Would be OK to dip strawberries in (as a dip not a coating), but didn't make me say YUM as a cake frosting. I recently moved and have yet to unpack my favorite recipes, so I'll continue to search for antother frosting recipe until I can find that box!!!

Creamy Potato and Leek Soup
Very good! Did need to thin it out a little as it was like mashed potatoes, but great flavor.
