Broccoli Cheese Soup VII
This recipe was wonderful. I did tweak it a bit...I added some extra shredded colby jack and sharp cheddar cheese, and used fresh vegetables...added white onion and a clove of garlic. Used the new Velveeta Sharp cheddar processed cheese for the base and it was wonderful. Turned out great.

Cranberry Sauce
Made this cranberry sauce for the second time this Christmas. Was a HUGE hit with the family. My special needs cousin who is the pickiest eater in the family was spooning it onto his rolls like jam! Wonderful recipe.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Wonderful frosting. We made it this Christmas for our carrot cake. Both were new recipes and at first we were skeptical. Recently moved and lost our family cookbooks in the mess and didn't have them available for the Holiday Season. This frosting was not overly sweet like some cream cheese frostings, it had a bit of tartness that made it just perfect. Our carrot cake had pieces of pineapple in it as well as the carrots, and it paired wonderfully with the frosting.
