Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar
Adding 1/3 cup of cocoa to 1 cup of water seemed too watery and bland to me. I reduced the water to 3/4 cup, and it seemed perfect and creamy. I plan on making cocoa cones with this by using disposable pastry decorating bags.

Cream Cheese Squares
I made the recipe as stated but halved it. It's pretty good, but it can be easily changed to suit your taste. I lined the pan with foil and sprayed with cooking spray so that they would be easy to remove after chilling in the fridge for a bit. Chilling definitely makes cutting easier. I'll make this again but try doubling the cream cheese mixture, adding a layer of fruit preserves, and possibly adding chopped nuts on top. The taste is somewhat similar to a basic cream cheese King Cake in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. You could even try using colored sugar on top (purple, yellow, and green).

Hash Brown Quiche
My husband and I loved this recipe. I'm a vegetarian so I omitted the ham, but I added lots of different veggies, which my meat-eating husband didn't mind. I thawed frozen hash browns and used paper towels to press out the moisture. I then tossed them with seasoning salt before pressing into the pie plate. I'll try using extra hash browns next time to create a thicker crust. I used a pastry brush to dab the melted butter on for even coating, but I did use less than what the recipe called for.
