Mini Tacos
were okay...but meat came out greasy even after draining it well. I would make again using my own spices like cumin to flavor meat..drain and pat dry..I used my own homemade HOT salsa so they had a good kick. I will try prebaking wontons a bit before as suggested since bottoms were soggy. tasty tho'.

Cracker Candy
I have been making this for about 30 yrs now..we never knew the name of it originally so we called it " I can't Believe it's already Ready Candy". It is excellent made w/ the white sugar ( tho' many seem to prefer brown who rated this). MY RECIPE of it directs you w/ specific times for EVERYTHING! You LINE a broiler pan w/ foil and arrange your crackers ( my recipe called for unsalted saltines). Melt butter and sugar and boil for " 3 minutes". Pour over saltines and bake at 400 degrees for " 5 minutes" ..Immediately sprinkle the choc chips over this evenly..pop back in oven for 2 min or less. This spreads the chocolate very easily over entire top of candy. . Sprinkle your choice nuts on top. FREEZE.. ( have to FREEZE them solid)..then break into pcs and store in airtight containers. The odd shapes they come out when broken up make them even more interesting. I always make these for Christmas baskets w/ a copy of the recipe attached. EVERYONE loves them. Oh ...and when you take them out of freezer.. lift foil sheet out.. invert and peel candy off foil. Put pan away.. hey i'ts clean !

Laurie's Shepherd's Pie
This combo is not bad, however, the pie shell on bottom is not necessary and I would never use it. I cook my ground beef with onions, peppers ( diced small) garlic, and mushrooms, after I brown it all, drain it, I add about 1/2 cup water and beef bouillon cube and make a beef gravy . Put entire mixture into a pie plate. Top with cream AND regular corn..( or I have made it w/ green beans as well)..Then top with a nice large topping of soft whipped mashed potatoes that you peak up with your spoon so it looks exactly like a meringue on top of a pie. Melt butter and drizzle in the valleys of the mashed potatoes and bake. This is a beautiful dish and can be prepared in individual ramekins for a nice presentation as well.
