Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge
I followed recommendations to reduce the sugar and increase the peanut butter, but the final product still tasted more like sugar than peanut butter. I salvaged the fudge by cutting into small cubes and rolling in unsweetened cocoa powder. The bitterness of the powder offsets the sweetness and actually allows the flavor of the peanut butter to come through.

No Bake Cookies III
I have made this recipe too many times to count and they've always received rave reviews. Personally, I think they're "just ok" but almost everyone I serve them to seems to love them. And because the cookies are very easy to make and don't require turning on the oven, this recipe gets 5 stars. I've tried a variety of changes including decreasing the sugar (you really don't need 2 cups), slightly decreasing the butter (which I use instead of margarine), slightly increasing the peanut butter. I've adjusted batch size (increased and decreased) to good effect. But if you want to double the recipe you should note that it'll take longer to drop all the cookies and the mixture may start to set in the saucepan. When this happens to me, I just put the saucepan over high heat for just a few seconds. Also note - do NOT substitute veg oil in whole or part for the margarine.. this will not work well and the cookies will be crumbly (though still tasty).

Olive Cheese Melts
Great taste, interesting mix of flavors. I used a dense multi-grain toast in place of the English muffins. I also added sliced pimento-stuffed green olives, and omitted the salt, as others had suggested (you will not miss it!). I used a low-fat mayo and found the taste to be a bit too sweet and overpowering - I'll use less mayo next time. I was afraid to put too much curry powder, so I only used a tiny pinch, but it can definitely handle more. I'd make these again, but I'll keep tinkering with the ingredients!
