Dad's Asian Slaw
I made this exactly as the recipe called for it, but it loses points for 1.) using a bottled salad dressing – I hate that weird tangy taste you always get from bottled dressing, 2.) Not enough ramen noodles, and 3.) instructions to marinade. This salad/cole slaw should be crunchy! If it marinades it all becomes much softer. My humble suggestion would be to substitute 1/3 cup red wine vinegar and 1/3 cup oil for the bottled salad dressing, add an extra packet of ramen noodles (oriental, not beef), and toss together the dressing and salad right before serving. It’s still good after it has sat, but it’s best served immediately.

Simple Turkey Chili
I thought this was pretty good. It had a little too much tomato taste for me (I think I would add more spices next time). Overall though it's a great easy recipe.

Best Buttercream Frosting
This is basically the same recipe as Waldolf Astoria frosting. You don't need to cook until the milk and flour form a ball, just whisk constantly over low heat until it becomes thick and pasty. Don't let chunks form on the bottom of the pan. When it is pasty remove from heat and let cool completely. Also, cream your butter first until it's nice and whipped, THEN add the sugar and cream again until light and fluffy. If you take the time and do it right this is an excellent buttercream recipe, especially if you're like me and don't like the super sweetness of frosting made with tons of powdered sugar.
