Creamy Broccoli Soup
This soup was very good, quick and easy. Not quite as yummy as Panera or au bon pain, but much healthier without all the butter and cream or half-and-half. All in all a good trade-off, since I got my broccoli-cheddar soup "fix" without all the guilt! I did as others suggested and used less oregano, but no other changes. I used lower sodium chicken broth and 2%-milk cheddar cheese, added a little salt and pepper to taste at the end. I will definitely make this again, thank you for the recipe! edit: I changed my rating from four stars to five stars. Love it! I just reheated the leftover soup I made yesterday, and it is even better the next day. Just as yummy as restaurant broccoli-cheddar soup. I will make this again and again.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting
Very good frosting! It's creamy, spreads nicely, isn't overly sweet, and has no "shortening" taste. Chocolately, but not too rich. I used it on a 9x12 cake, still in the pan, (only the top was frosted) so I had an ample amount of frosting. Make sure the butter is softened before creaming, use an electric mixer to get it really creamy, and don't skip the sifting step. This will be my recipe when I want a frosting that's simple, quick, and yummy!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
This dressing really is fabulous. The second time I made it I cut back on the vinegar (equal parts EVOO and red wine vinegar) and omitted the mustard to use in a Greek pasta salad and it made a wonderful pasta salad! I will make it many times again with these two revisions for both green salads and pasta salads. Thank you for sharing!
