Candy Cane Fudge
I hate to see all the negative reviews on this, but I get it. It's not for everyone. I made this last year and made it again because I am one of the people who really enjoys it! Last year my husband accidentally bought the old-fashioned candy canes, which are softer, almost like dinner mint-consistency. They are the thick sticks about 5 inches long. I haven't tried it with the harder, starlight-type candy canes, and I probably won't because I like it with the sticks. Last year I doubled the peppermint in it and I thought it was too minty. This year I followed the directions exactly, with the exception of using old-fashioned candy canes, and I thought it was perfect. My father-in-law loved it, my husband didn't; half my daughter's friends (sixth graders) loved it, the other half didn't. My son likes it but doesn't love it. This is not a soft, creamy-type fudge, it does work out to be more like candy, as someone else said. I think it tastes a lot like a dinner mint and I love those, so I'll continue to make this every holiday. For those who think it's not minty enough, maybe go up to 3/4 tsp of peppermint extract. I like the subtle minty flavor with 1/2 tsp myself. Couldn't be easier, no boiling or painful candy burns! Four stars easy. Would give five if it turned out more like traditional fudge.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Wow! This is without a doubt the BEST potato soup I've ever had. I doubled the recipe and I'm a little ashamed to admit I was the one who pretty much ate all of it. I followed the directions exactly, except that I used unsalted butter (no reason, it was just all I had), and instead of bouillon granules I used broth and some water. I used Yukon Gold potatoes. Follow the directions and make that gravy/sauce stuff like it says and you'll really enjoy this. I cooked it in my slow cooker for about 4 hours, adding in the flour/butter/milk mixture about an hour before serving. Everyone I've served it to absolutely loved it.
