Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup
Very good recipe! Kids loved it, too. Five star-taste; 4 star directions. Really, the directions should probably instruct you to make the roux: gradually add the stock (soup base much better than boullion cubes) whisking constantly to remove lumps; then add other ingredients. Easy and delicious. I suspect that using the roux as written would give you problems with lumps. Love the addition of chicken to broccoli soup! I decreased the cheese a bit and still wonderful.

Fluffy White Frosting
I had already used canned white frosting in between layers of a three layer 9 inch round cake and planned on using some canned strawberry frosting for a pink cake. I changed my mind immediately after tasting it...yuck!!! So, not enough butter for buttercream led me to this. I followed this recipe with the addition of a bit of lemon to the sugar syrup. Boiled for nearly 7 minutes. Added a touch of almond and a few drops of coloring. It did take a while to reform the stiff peaks after adding the syrup. But they did peak in my stainless steel bowl and Kitchen Aid mixer...VERY well (probably after 7 minutes; but I went ahead and continued for 10 minutes). The frosting was very stiff and so pretty. Easy to spread, but I wouldn't wait long) I am not a talented cake decorator, but I could make this frosting smooth on the top (well...smooth enough for my purposes...not wedding cake smooth) Made enough for the outside and would have probably been enough for in between the layers as well. Lovely little cake. Simple to make. Mine had a tiny bit of tartness (b/c of the lemon I suppose)and was light and not-so-sweet. I covered and put it in the fridge for tomorrow.

Zippy Shepherd's Pie
I have five kids with few individual dislikes...but altogether it's challenging to fit all tastes. I dont like to make casserole-ish type dinners much..but sometimes schedules demand it. AND finding a one-dish recipe WITHOUT cream of this-or-that is difficult. All my kids love this recipe and it's really not all that unhealthy as most casserole-type-dishes tend to be (depending on your meat and how you prepare the potatoes). Admitedly, I reduced the curry, though. I also pile in the veggies and pile on the potatoes. Pretty quick preparation. Thanks!
