Except for baking, I tend to use recipes as more of a general guide...sometimes works well, sometimes we end up with takeout!

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Cream cheese frosting perfection! Silky, smooth with just a bit of tang and definitely not at all like the sweet junk from a can - this is how cream cheese frosting should taste!

Pizza Dough II
Excellent! Only change made was to pre-bake crust in preheated 500 degree oven until lightly browned. Added toppings and put back in oven just until hot and cheese melted. Everyone raved - thanks for sharing Stephen Carroll!

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole
Good basic recipe, but after reading reviews decided to season it up on first making. In glass measure cup mixed 1 egg, 1/4 c onion & chive cream cheese and enough milk to bring liquid to 2/3 c. Added liquid to 4 c hash brown, 2 T chives, 4 green onion sliced thin, 1t minced garlic and used 7x11 glass baking dish. Added dash of onion powder & garlic powder to veggies - used equal amounts fresh sliced carrots, celery and frozen green beans, peas, corn & broccoli (total of 16 oz) and lastly about 1/4 c finely chopped frozen spinach. Didn't use bread crumb topping, put extra diced chicken (seasoned well when cooked) on top. Next time will probably added a bit of evaporated milk to the condensed soup just to make it a bit creamier. Family loved it!
