Sugar Cookie Icing
This recipe worked wonderfully...bright vibrant colors and hardened up beautifully...I added a little more corn syrup to gloss it up a little bit more but it turned out great! Will definitely use again!

Chicken Eileen
I made this for dinner tonight and it flew off the plate!! I noticed that a lot of people had thought it was bland, so I added a little bit of ham and bacon; chicken cordon bleu style. Put a little bacon on the ham slice and the cheese...topped with the stuffing and folded over...once it was done, I pulled out the toothpicks covered with mozz and sprinkled more bacon on top and threw it back in! Delicous...definitely a keeper in my household!

Filipino Lumpia
As a kid I remember visiting Philipino friends who fed these to us all the time! I love egg rolls but really was trying to find a recipe for these babies...I have made these and find that they are not all that hard (especially with a mini chopper) and turn out amazing! They fly out of my home when I make them and have given out the recipe a million times! I have read about people using the coleslaw mix instead and next time I'm trying that because I never use up all the carrots or the cabbage and end up making 2 batches! I also use the "mini egg roll" wrappers and next time I'm also going to try baking them to cut down on the "fry fat"...425 for 10 min...turn and another 10 min...should be nice and crispy without the "fry fat!"
