Marshmallow Fondant
Awesome recipe! As others have said, easy enough for beginners. Some of the tips that I found helpful are as follows: Melted my marshmallows over a double boiler in my mixing bowl, added water, but didn't bother with vanilla. Also added my color at this time. Transferred bowl to stand mixer, added powdered sugar, about 1 pound at a time, and mixed with dough hook, probably a total of 5 minutes. Turned dough out onto well greased counter, greased my hands, and kneed. This process is very easy, and although it sounds messy, it's actually not because over time most of the crisco gets absorbed into the dough and you just have a film to clean up.....MUCH easier than powdered sugar!!! I was using this dough for cut outs, I found it easiest to roll onto greased parchment paper and then pull away the extra dough. It is drying now, will probably take a couple of days.....wish me luck that they dry ok and come off of the parchment paper:)

Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup
Very good recipe, pretty easy too. Cooked bacon instead of bacon bits as others did. Before I added the half and half I put batches into the blender for a smooth and creamy soup.....this would have been much easier with a hand blender. Only other labor intensive part was peeling the potatoes. I used chicken broth instead of bouillon and water. Will make again reserving some crispy bacon for the top:)

Easy Chicken Enchiladas
This recipe is great for families!!! I made two different types of "burritos" one per the instructions and one my kids would actually eat. For the regular ones I used pre-cooked chicken that I defrosted and topped them with extra salsa before putting the cheese on top. For my kids I left out the salsa and beans. Everyone loved them! When I reheated them the next day in the oven they came out crisp on the outside and soft on the inside and the kids dipped them in sour cream....will make this many more times due to ease and great response from the Fam:)
