Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip
I usually tweek my recipess but not this time. Made this for our neighborhood progressive dinner and it was a huge hit. The women loved it but the men especially liked it. I will definitely make it again. Used Marie's Chunky Blue Cheese dressing and bottled Hidden Valley Ranch. Frank's Redhot and rotisserie chicken. Sharp Cheddar on top. Served with tortilla chips and bread. Couldn't even taste the celery. I might do 2 stalks next time.

Easy Sugar Cookies
This recipe calls for too much flour. We have attempted this 3 times now and I finally got smart enough to cut the flour. I am a seasoned cook/baker (I was most definitely measuring correctly). If you use 2 3/4 cups of flour, you will end up with a very crumbly dough. I reduced it to 2 1/2 with much better results. It was still crumbly but I kept mixing and it FINALLY came together. Next time I will drop it to 2 1/4 c. If I were to rate this after cutting the flour, I would give the recipe 5 stars. However, as written, it only gets 3 from me. Before, it was a dry cookie. This last time, they much more moist and chewy. My advice is to add the flour slowly when you make this. See what works for you.

Blue Cheese Potato Salad
I really enjoyed this! I used a lot of blue cheese because I love that stinky cheese! I used 5 slices of microwavable bacon and I quartered the tiny red potatoes. Roasted them in the oven, rather than boiling. Very good. Like the semi-German style potato salad. Will make again.
