Hash Brown and Egg Casserole
The first time I made it (exactly per the recipe) the hash browns overpowered. Made it again, but this time I put in 10 eggs, 3/4 c milk, doubled the onion powder/garlic powder, added another 8oz shredded cheese, added a small can of green chiles, and a few fresh diced tomatoes. (and yeah, you'll need a BIGGER casserole dish!) It was much better, but still 'needs something'.. (e.g. gravy, picante, spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper, scallions, butter, sour cream, other herb/spice??). It's pretty filling and hearty with some decent ingredients, so I will be making it again -and continue the experimentation. :)

Christmas Wreaths
These treats are a Christmas Tradition, but great for any Winter gathering. Love the color and flavor! I think this recipe is excellent, but if you think you've got too many corn flakes, add more marshmallows; or too marshmallowy, add more flakes on the next batch! So simple to tweak to your liking. I get about 10 treats per cook. TIPS: For faster creation, Melt the butter first, then Microwave the Marshmallows in an 8 cup Pyrex, add the melted butter and vanilla to it, stir well, THEN add it to the Corn flakes in a Gi-normous sized metal or plastic bowl stirring with a medium sized flat Spatula, THEN add the food coloring, keep stiring. I noticed the food coloring had a better natural Green color doing it this way instead of mixing it into the melted marshmallows. Definitely Helps to have another person help 'form' the wreaths as you are 'spatulating' them onto the wax paper. Highly recommend having buttered Vinyl/Rubber gloves to form/shape them. I don't worry about making 'donut-hole shaped' wreaths, as they look fine and are easier to eat/handle just as a solid glob shape (will upload a photo when I get the pixels up to allrecipes standards). One final tip: use caution if putting your Wax paper on Granite countertops —depending on the type of granite or sealant, you could end up with darkened 'splotch' stains.

Lemon Kissed Brownie Bites
Ok, just finished 'enjoying one' --M-I-L-K... must have Milk! The bittersweet chocolate was a bit strong,overpowering on the flavor. So, I'd recommend to go easy on the chocolate glaze, change it to milk chocolate, or serve it with vanilla ice-cream. May want to go with Milk chocolate or Semi-sweet chips for the Cocoa chips for the Brownie mix itself. On the other hand, the Lemon Frosting was absolutely delicious and could be a Recipe all to itself!
