I don't have that "cooking ego", but I know what I'm doing. I can cook and I enjoy trying other people's recipes.

Seven Layer Salad
I always rate based on the recipe as originally posted. Only seems fair to me. Making this ahead of time actually REQUIRES the dressing to be spread on top so it acts as an airtight seal, keeping everything layered below crisp and fresh. Serve it from the bottom up & each serving gets something of everything. It's rich & crisp and leftovers are actually excellent, even thought it's a lettuce salad. It's amazing. Thanks for posting, Leah Mae.

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole
True comfort food. Thanks, Carol! Kudos & 5 stars because it's that good just as written! You can trust this over and over again, and come up with ways to just make it "yours". The key to success is covering it so it's airtight. NO PEEKING. I recommend using whole chicken breasts for this and for any chicken dish that's not being used in a sandwich; just remove the skin & the fat. Simply pull it off, no big deal. The flavor that comes from using meat on the bones is going to blow your mind. Boneless, skinless meat of any kind is a loser in flavorland. We always have to pile on something for flavor; am I right? Bones are good in baking, roasting, grilling, stewing, every manor of cooking meat; fat is incorrect. Let me know if you agree. I substitute wine for half the water called for, sometimes just 1/3. I'm not a wine snob, either. I admit to keeping "cooking wine" in my fridge and using it, especially Cooking Sherry. Just get some into the mix and you'll be amazed. I also recommend using only half the onion soup mix because it's so flippin' salty. There's plenty of flavor in using half that stuff in ANY recipe that calls for it. It's good stuff though, no doubt about it. If I'm out of the onion soup mix, I use a splash Soy Sauce or liquid smoke, maybe some Worcestershire or Kitchen Bouquet & hit it with smoked Paprkia, which is great with the wine I add. There's tons of wiggle room in every recipe. This recipe from Carol is elegant enough for company. All American!

Frozen Chocolate Graham 'Ice Cream' Sandwiches
Excellent recipe, Sarahlue. Easily adaptable with flavored whipped toppings now available. We sometimes spread just a little Nutella on plain graham crackers before putting them together, and have even used that great Milky Way spread from a jar. Both are nice and thick, easy to spread LIGHTLY. Plain grahams & original flavor whipped topping however, a great way to go to keep things simple and keep us on track with the diets. Thanks again for sharing this one.
