Easy Vodka Sauce
I thought this recipe was quite good as a starting base, but like others mentioned, it needed a bit more flavoring. I added a few cloves of minced garlic that I sautéed with the onions in half butter/half olive oil before adding the vodka. Once the red sauce was in, I added chopped parsley, dried oregano, dried basil, and red pepper flakes. With these few additions, this is a simple yet impressive tasting sauce you can proudly serve to guests.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This is a very simple dish, and quite tasty. I used chicken tenders, left them whole, and crescent dough that I cut it into small strips. I prefer dumplings on the thinner side (more like a thick noodle) when using canned dough, otherwise they can be a bit too gummy. I subbed out some of the water for Sherry, left out the butter and onions, and added diced carrots and celery. Because I didn't use chicken stock, I found that I needed to add a small chicken bouillon cube towards the end to give it a richer flavor. This dish is a husband pleaser!

Salmon Patties II
I am usually one to add or subtract ingredients from a recipe, but this one is great just the way it is. Admittedly, I added just a *dash* of garlic powder, dried parsley, black pepper and cayenne, but other than that, I did not deviate from the recipe (no onions, bell peppers, etc.) and I would imagine it doesn't even need my small additions. I would consider this more of a salmon croquette, due to the crispyness that the flour adds. I didn't have self-rising, so I just used cake flour with a little bit of baking powder and salt to compensate. I also halved the recipe, using leftover salmon from dinner the night before, and still included a full egg. I'm sure it is just as good with canned fish, which is what I normally use for salmon patties. Thumbs up for a super simple and tasty recipe!
