A few weeks ago I made a cream ale whose base malt was 6-row. I now have a 55lb sack of 2-row. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good cream ale recipe that uses 2-row as a base. Heck, I'd take any tasty brew recipe that uses 2-row. Just trying to figure out what I am going to make this weekend.

Of course you can use two-row malt. Six-row contributes a slight grainy quality that is appropriate for this style, and it has somewhat higher diastatic power for converting adjuncts. But assuming you are not specifically seeking that grainy flavor and the amount of adjuncts is less than about 20 percent of the grist, you shouldn't have any problems.
