Tortellini Salad
This salad was just so-so for me. (And though I usually get rave reviews for my recipes at family parties, I only got one compliment on this one.) I loved the ingredients in it-- pretty much all things I like. But somehow the final product was kind of bland. It must have been the dressing. I think I will make this again because I really like the parts, but I will use kalamata olives for more flavor, maybe throw in some parmesan for depth, and I might use a bottled Greek or Italian dressing rather than just the oil/vinegar/Italian herbs. I think this salad has potential, but it needs some tweaking to be up to my standards.

Chicken Noodle Soup
I thought this was a wonderful, very easy, very quick chicken soup recipe. I tried another recipe before this that called for the stock to be from scratch (boiling a chicken, etc.) and this recipe was just as good if not better. I like the spice better on this one too, and it took 1/3 the time! I only made a few small changes. I didn't have marjoram, so I used 1/2 tsp of thyme and 1/4 tsp celery salt. I also ended up adding half a can of cream of chicken soup, because I like my soup a little thicker and creamier. But the broth before I added it was delicious, so don't think the soup needed it. I threw in a few more vegetables that I had on hand as well. But even without them, the soup would have been flavorful and good. My husband, who is picky about his chicken soup, ate two bowls and my mother said it was probably the best chicken soup she's ever had! That's quite a compliment coming from my mother!

Sausage, Bacon, Apple and Cornbread Stuffing
Good, but not amazing. I followed the recipe pretty closely. I did omit the sausage links because I thought it would have plenty with just the crumbled sausage (and the sausage content seemed just right that way). I also added a handful of craisins, for color and tartness. And I used 2 boxes of cornbread stuffing mix rather than making cornbread separately. But otherwise I followed the recipe. And it was good. I can't say there was anything wrong with it. But no one made any comments about it or gave any compliments. Personally, I thought the bacon threw off the flavor a bit. It's hard to imagine bacon not making anything better, but stuffing has its own flavor and the bacon sort of confused my pallate a little. I may try this another time, but I will omit the bacon and add less salt.
