Cheesy Chicken and Potato Casserole with Bacon
Really good casserole, however it is really just hash-brown casserole with added chicken and bacon. I used hash-browns with onions and peppers. I also cooked my chicken in oil with salt, pepper and two cloves crushed garlic before shredding. I am not a fan of cream of chicken so I used cream of celery, as I usually do and a mixture of cheddar and velveeta for the cheese. Sometimes I make this with cubed ham and broccoli instead of chicken and bacon. Both variations are really good and my 4 kids devour it. Anything all your children will eat is a plus in my book!!

No Bake Cookies V
Same recipe my mother made when I was a kid, except I boiled for the 1 minute 30 seconds she did. I also use 1/3 cup cocoa. For the others that had issues with thiers setting up, you must bring these to a rapid boil that you cannot stir down before setting your timer, otherwise these will not set.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
Great Carrot Cake. I made exactly as recipe stated except I omitted the raisins and realized at the last minute I did not have the pineapple, so I substituted 8 ounces of applesauce and 1 shredded granny smith apple, which worked out wonderful. I am not a carrot cake fan, but I did eat one small piece and it was really good. My husband and teen daughter (our carrot cake fans in the house) ate this non stop. I will make again.
