Candy Cane Fudge
This is pretty and it tastes festive, but it's essentially melted vanilla chips with candy cane mixed in, so I don't see how it could ever be classified as great. I served this with a large selection of cookies and this didn't make the top of the favorite list. I imagine if it were served alone, folks would eat it and say it's pretty good, but I don't think the taste really wow's anyone. I suspect the attraction is how festive it looks.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup
I found this to be bland and boring, although certainly easy, especially if you have an immersion blender. It could be my own fault because I hate cumin and I left it out. I considered trying again with sauteed onions and garlic, adding thyme and another can of beans and maybe pouring in some sherry, but decided to find a recipe elsewhere instead of essentially trying to create my own.

Melt In Your Mouth Toffee
Like many others, I used a pan with more surface area, a 10" x 15" cookie sheet. I also put the chocolate chips on top of the poured toffee, spread them with a knife (give them a minute to soften) and sprinkled the nuts on top. I tried putting candy cane sprinkles on one half, but they just didn't go with the toffee as well as the nuts. I thought the toffee was still too think and difficult to eat. It got stuck in my teeth and I really wasn't a fan. Most folks that had some didn't seem to like it much either, but my mother couldn't stop eating it, so I'll be keeping the recipe.
