Butter Icing for Cookies
Great cookie icing - the kids had a lot of fun decorating with it (unlike shiny icings that may look great, but dry far too quickly) However, this recipe does NOT make 2 1/2 cups of icing. I increased the recipe by 50% (i.e. 3 cups of confectioners sugar, 6 TBS of butter, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, 3 3/4 TBS of cream...) and I measured the finished icing at 1 1/4 cups of icing. If you actually need 2 1/2 cups of icing, you'll definitely need to increase your measurements.

Pasta Salad with Homemade Dressing
My tweaks are to replace the dried basil AND the fresh parsley with fresh basil. I replace the cucumber with halved grape tomatoes. I use slightly less garlic, and I omit the pepperoni so that vegetarians can it it too. I followed the advice of another reviewer to save some of the dressing until just before I serve it, to re-moisten the salad, which works great! And finally, I have tried this recipe with both regular provolone and expensive sharp provolone from the deli counter. I definitely prefer the sharp provolone if I can find it. It really adds a kick to the recipe.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus
I tried this tonight with just the salt, olive oil and parmesan cheese. Delicious! Looking forward to adding additional ingredients next time my fridge is fully-stocked!
