Quick Fudge Icing
In her description, Janice says "easy, quick, and good". I would re-phrase that to "easy, takes some time, and BEST FUDGE ICING IN THE WORLD." It IS easy, but as written in the negative reviews you can have a spectulactular failure with this type of sauce without some experience or better directions than are stated in the recipe. As other reviewers have noted, you must cook it slow and low [and you don't need to stir it at all at this stage or you might get some sugar on the upper part of the pot or on your spoon that doesn't get melted] until the sugar is completely dissolved. Other than not having enough instruction for beginners, the recipe is perfect as written. I used about 1/4 tsp salt and 2 tsp vanilla--just my preference [and, admittedly, my compulsion to NEVER follow a recipe exactly]. If you get tired of beating--it works just as well to beat til starting to thicken, then let cool most of the way, then finish beating to spreading consistency. Or if you want the ABSOLUTE BEST HOT FUDGE SAUCE YOU HAVE EVER HAD stop at the half way point and pore it over ice cream. I had people swooning out of their chairs when I had a sundae party and used this. This makes a glossy beautiful icing--very different from a buttercream frosting--but if you want a FUDGY icing you won't find a better one than this.

Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS--with only a few changes: sauteed one stalk celery and 1/2 a bell pepper along with the onion [i used 1 1/2 onions] and garlic. I put the sauteed veg in my crock pot with the peeled and chopped tomatoes [probably 8-10 lbs], salt and pepper, and about a Tbls of sugar. Cooked about two hrs. on high, then added about 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil and 2-3 Tbls chopped fresh oregano. Decreased heat to low and cooked another 4 hrs. Makes a perfect basic sauce. Next time I plan to make it spicier with the addition of some red pepper flakes and a few Tbls of worchestershire sauce--YUMMM

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
EVERYBODY loved it! I used this on a fresh blackberry cake and it was perfect. I used about 3 c. sugar in all, and added about a tsp of lemon zest and a dash of vanilla extract. It was easy, so creamy, and just the right amount for a 2 layer cake. Definitely a keeper, and the flavor variations that are possible mean it will get used often.
