No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
I had to edit this review. I'd give it no stars if it were an option. My original review of 3 stars was based on a small taste I had & the fact that these cookies *looked* good. After letting them set for a's beyond me how this recipe has so many stars. After attempting to taste test a whole cookie, before serving these at a family dinner, I decided to trash the whole batch and kiss $10 worth of ingredients good bye. (I doubled the recipe.) The fat & calorie content really bothered me.....but these cookies really didn't taste that good. Chewy & VERY buttery, but with out any real flavor. Which is beyond me, given all the chocolate & peanut butter. All I tasted was butter. I did take one bar to dinner so my family could test these. The comments ranged from "no flavor" to "too much butter" to just plain "nasty". I'm all for a rich dessert every now and then, but this recipe is totally not worth the calories or the $ you'll spend on ingredients. My first review is below: Heart attack in a cookie.....These are good but I doubt I'll make them again, simply because of the outrageous fat & calorie content. When I want a cookie, I want a COOKIE, not two bites with hundreds of calories. The picture looks good....and I had decided to make these for a family get together before I took a close look at the recipe. Easy to make, but way way to rich for my taste.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken
Very good! My complaint with other fried chicken recipes I've tried has been lack of flavor - the garlic powder & pepper gave this a great taste. Hubby was impressed and my little guy ate it up. We'll use this recipe again!

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
Very good! I found myself out of butter (!) so I was glad to have found this recipe. Perfect balance of cream cheese / sweet chocolate taste. I used all 4 cups of powdered sugar and the recipe made plenty of icing to frost & fill a 9 inch 2 layer cake.
