Grands!(R) Mini Chicken Pot Pies
This is a fabulous recipe. My family loves chicken pot pie and this was a fun and easy way to serve them up. Initially I was a little concerned that it would be a bit bland, but noticed others thought the same. I used my large size muffin tin, worked out well. Also made a few minor changes: * Veggies: Instead of a frozen veggie mix I'd probably never use again. I just used 1/2 c each of frozen peas and corn, diced up a fresh carrot (yes, won't be overly soft, but my family does not enjoy mushy cooked carrots), and about a 1/4 cup of diced onion. * Herbs/Spices: I also added 1-2 tablespoons of dried Italian herb mix, 1/2 tsp of pepper. No need to add any salt to this. * I also upped the amount of chicken (diced two breasts, maybe 1.5-2 cups.

Sticky Buns II
Made this receipt three times already - worked fabulously. Although the couple of hour/yeast recipes have their place, that you can make these in under an hour is wonderful. Keep in mind, it does take more than 30 minutes to prepare (I would say closer to 40-45). I also used two round cake tins to make them - I spaced six per round (one in middle, others spaced around) no worries about space between them, they will expand while baking!

My Best Clam Chowder
The recipe as is, is quite bland, but a good base to season as you would like. There are several good suggestions as to how to perk this recipe up (tsp onion and/or garlic powder, etc.). Clam juice itself is not overly tasteful. Instead of water or additional clam juice, I'd cover the cooking vegetables with a quart of chicken broth. Also, a good roux takes takes a few minutes and patience (the flour & butter step). Alternatively, I would definitely go with the bacon suggestion: Dice up 4 strips of bacon and fry until golden brown, add 1/2 cup flour. and mix together, browning slightly - then add gradually add the cream, etc. Good luck!
