Creamy Chipotle Chicken
Fantastic recipe! I'm generally not a fan of recipes that call for canned/condensed soups, but this was really good. To make it healthier, I omitted the butter completely, used low-fat cream cheese (neufchatel) and 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. With three chipotles it was very spicy, but we like it that way! I softened the cream cheese and blended it with the broth until smooth, then added the soup, chipotles and garlic. I didn't add any salt or pepper - doesn't need it. Cooked on low for four hours and then turned to warm for another 1.5 hours. Perfect!

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Excellent flavor! Used chicken broth and half of the quinoa, added chick peas, roasted red peppers (not fresh green), fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, fresh cucumbers and artichokes. It's a keeper!

Sugar Cookie Icing
I always use Wilton's Buttercream Frosting for my cookies, but decided to try this, too. WOW! The combination of the two on The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies from this site is amazing. I used Simple Syrup (get from any liquor store) in place of corn syrup and just plain water...but needed more than 2 tsp. Start with two and work your way from there to desired consistency. We used paintbrushes and the toddlers LOVED it. Almond extract is the best, too...yum, yum, yum.
