Banana Pudding IV
Sooooo good! I did alter it a bit. I made fresh whipped cream with heavy cream and a little powdered sugar. This makes such a difference. It eliminates the chemical taste in cool whip and artificial ingredients. I also made two layers of cookies, using a whole box and 6 bananas. Topped with more whipped cream and 6 crushed wafers.

Amazing Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce
This was good but not fabulous. I actually didn't like the mozzarella which I am a melted cheese fan. Maybe it was my brand of mozzarella but it didn't melt just kind of clumped up and stuck to the tomatoes. I sautéed six cloves of garlic in the butter before adding the cream. I did half cream and half whole milk, more tomatoes in oil, and a cup of thawed and drained frozen chopped spinach, and omitted the nuts because my kids wouldn't eat them. Overall it is a good flavor.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup
I have been looking for more meatless recipes to try to save a little money and thought this sounded good. It was good. I did what others did and only pureed 1/2 of the beans and 1/2 of the salsa and put the rest in whole. Next time I will put double the amount of whole salsa in for more texture--I like chunky soup! I used Southwestern style salsa that had corn and beans in it. I served it with Mexican blend shredded cheese chopped cilantro, and tortilla chips. My 1 1/2 year old like it!
