THE Pasta Salad
This was just okay. I wouldn't call it DRY, but definitely not CREAMY like I was wanting. I found it bland when the recipe was followed exactly. Definitely don't omit the hot sauce. I used "Frank's". My husband can't stand anything spicy and he said it wasn't hot at all. Unless you LOVE peas I would half the peas and add other veges, or just half the peas. Also please note that this makes A LOT. 7 servings would be if it was the main course. Since I made a double batch I went back and added a few things so we can get through it all; doubled the ham, added cherry tomatoes, a bell pepper, celery and carrots. I also added more sour cream and mayo. Still a bit bland, needed SOMETHING, not sure what (as stated in previous posts). You could experiment with lemon juice, dill weed, celery salt, vinegar etc to figure it out. (Or you could just try another recipe).

Pumpkin Pancakes
I followed this recipe EXACTLY. These had a nice flavor but were too dry and dense. I'm sure there's things you could do to make it fluffier like using pastry flour or extra eggs but I feel that if you don't follow the recipe exactly you can't give it a fair star rating so I always follow it exactly the first time. Next time I'll definitely add an extra egg, more milk and probably some blueberries or chocolate chips to make it fluffier and more moist. EDIT; made them a second time with a few changes to make them HEALTHIER :) sub 4 egg whites for eggs, sub 2 Tablespoons applesauce for oil, sub 1 cup protein powder for 1 cup of flour (depending on your brand of protein powder you may not be able to do this or you may need to add extra baking powder to make them fluffy), completely omitted brown sugar, sub 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice for spices and added about 1 cup blueberries. Added a few Tablespoons extra milk until the batter seemed to pour a little nicer. I found with these changes the recipe was a much better consistency. Pancakes were moist, taisty and liked by all. (Plus MUCH less fattening and fewer carbs)

Cherry and Raisin Loaf
All purpose flour works great! Don't need to go out and buy "bread flour" if you don't already have it. I've made this recipe 2x now. The first time I got busy and forgot to add the raisins and cherries. But it was still really great. We ate it that time with peanut butter and jelly. This one is definitely a keeper :-)
