Welsh Tea Loaf
I made this several times and it went very fast! I even made it for Christmas gifts. They were well received! Thanks for such a great recipe!

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies
I read some of the reviews to get an idea of what to expect. I noticed some found the mix dry, so I made certain to spend extra time creaming the fats and sugars, then added the eggs one at a time, to ensure a creamy mix. Then I added the flour mixture a little at a time to be sure it didn't get too dry. These are really great cookies! I will definitely be making these again!

Sausage Steamed Dinner
This recipe is so simple. I made some changes to it because I had other ingredients: I used fully cooked kiebasa and boneless/skinless chicken breasts instead of the hambone and sausage. I also only had onion, potato, carrot and cabbage. My daughter loved this, even though she "doesn't like cooked cabbage!" Thanks, Karen!
