Nana's Christmas Stollen
This bread turned out really well. Mine was kind of like stollen on steroids. I never had yeast rise as well as it did with this recipe! Something to consider: The recipe says to combine the 3 cups of flour with the dry yeast, add the liquids and process and let rise. Then you add the remaining 2 2/3 cups of flour. But a problem I had was that after the first processing in a food processor, it bubbled up everywhere. The yeast exploded and volcanoed out of the processor! So really, all that needs to be done after mixing in the liquids with the yeast/flour is to pour it into a bowl and then hand-mix the rest of the flour and pre-chopped candies/nuts/whatever. And then let it rise in the bowl. I was scraping gooey yeast drippings off the food processor and counter. But the bread still turned out really great, moist, and not over-sweet. Mine were huge and I got 3 good loaves out of it. The family says this recipe tops Betty Crocker's (what I used last Christmas). Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Best Spinach Dip Ever
This recipe is a great "base" recipe, but I found that adding green onions, herb cream cheese (I used chive cream cheese), half the mayo, leek soup mix and fresh garlic really amped this one up super. I could have eaten the whole bread bowl. At the end of the night, guests were tearing apart the bowl wanting more!

Sugar Cookie Icing
The icing has a great flavor but the whole thing didn't work for me. I followed the measurements exactly and they yielded a very thick frosting consistency so I had to add more of the milk and corn syrup. However I never did get the "right" consistency. Might have to tweek it a few times to get it right.
