Sausage Soup
Pretty tasty! My advice- use cheese tortellini instead of the Bowtie pasta, add fennel seeds, and use medium size onions or more chicken stock. If you like spicy- use spicy Italian sausage. Yum! :-)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
I feel like the soup has a good base, but is lacking flavor for what I would consider a great potato soup. I definitely recommend adding garlic and more salt and pepper. I didn't use the ham but instead I used bacon. I cooked bacon in a separate pan and poured some of the bacon grease in the soup and set aside the bacon to crumble on the top of the soup, along with cheddar cheese and scallions. Delicious!

Stuffed Bell Peppers
This is a good recipe to start with- but work to customize it! My boyfriend doesn't like tomatoes very much, so instead of adding the tomato sauce, I added about 2 tbsp of ketchup. If it started to get dry in the pan when I was mixing it, I would just add a little chicken stock. I also swaped out the beef for turkey. We like it a little spicy, so I also added about 2 tbsp of Sirachi (Rooster) Sauce for a nice kick. Also, instead of letting the rice simmer and cook, I chose to use a rice cooker to fully cook the rice, and just stir it in at the end, making sure all of the sauces completely cover the rice. Fairly simple recipe, and delicious. I love stuffed peppers! :-)
