Marshmallow Fondant
I've never made fondant before. This recipe requires patience and cooking spray! I sprayed my bowl and spoon before melting the marshmallows. Before I kneaded the dough, I added some Wilton's food color and greased my hands with plenty of shortening, and re-greased as needed. This ensured the dough didn't stick to my hands, nor did the food coloring. It took a LOT of kneading. You'll think it's never going to form a dough, but be patient. It will. You may have to adjust the amount of powdered sugar, adding more as necessary. I ended up using a 10.5 oz. bag of marshmallows and almost an entire 2 lb. bag of powdered sugar to get a good doughy consistency. I left the fondant in the fridge overnight and just now rolled out a test strip. It's great! Tastes good and easy to use. My stepdaughter kept telling me fondant is too hard to use and I'd never be able to do it. She felt and tasted this stuff and said it's 100 times better than the fondant her friend's mom used! I plan to use small portions at a time and keep the rest in the fridge until I need it. I think that will make it easier to work with.

The Best Chicken Salad Ever
Wow, this is good!! I made a homemade coleslaw dressing with Miracle Whip, sugar, vinegar and vegetable oil. Then I mixed that with mayonnaise for the sauce. I added some almonds and fresh green onions from the garden. It's even good with canned chicken and I hate canned chicken! I can't stop eating it!

Reuben Dip
Oh my gosh! This stuff is GOOD!!! I couldn't even wait to eat it - I was sneaking bites before I even got it into the oven. It's still in the oven and I keep opening it to get bites because I can't wait! If you like reubens you will LOVE this! I didn't change a thing, other than the fact that I didn't actually measure the ingredients.
