Chicken Pot Pie IX
I gave this 2 stars because like everyone else I made a LOT of modications to the recipe. It was a good starting point, but I could tell by reading the recipe and the reviews it would be too bland and dry for my taste. I added chopped garlic, poultry seasoning, celery salt, savory and more pepper. I'm a vegetarian so I used Morning Star Chix'N Strips instead of real chicken, also used organic frozen peas and carrots. I added 3 gold potatoes, cubed. I boiled the potatoes in 2 c. vegetable stock with extra seasonings and white cooking wine, then added peas and carrots last. Also used a can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup whole milk. Also used Pepperidge Farm frozen Puff Pastry for top and bottom crust. I baked the crust before filling as others suggested but the puff pastry still got too stringy and wet on the bottom. Impossible to cut through. But the pastry on the TOP was flaky and delicious. If I make this again I will only have a top crust or I'll make real pastry crust. The flavor was very good even with the fake chicken. So I guess the summary is that when it was all over I ended up with a totally different recipe than was given here! My opinion is that the recipe as it stands looks incredibly boring, dry, and bland. The end result of all my modifications I would give about a 4 star rating. Husband thought it was good but not great.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies III
Ehhh, not very good. Very cakey/spongey. Very bland, one-dimensional, plain. After the first tray came out, added chocolate chips to the remaining batter. That added a "tad" of life but still not much. They would need a good cream cheese icing to get any flavor on them at all. And they did not brown up either. They came out a very pale whitish color, very unappetizing looking. I won't make them again, but gave them 2 stars because they weren't a total failure.

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting
Excellent!!! Perfect amount of everything, but I added an extra tsp. of Vanilla. I used this to frost sour cream sugar cookies - YUMMMMM! If you want to cut down the bitterness of the chocolate, you can substitute 1/2 the chips for milk chocolate chips.
