Ranch, Bacon, and Parmesan Pasta Salad
Great base for pasta salad! I didn't mean to make changes, as I'm sure the original was excellent, but needed to use ingredients I had on hand. I think almost any vegetables could be added depending on your taste. I used other reviewers ideas, mixing dry ranch mix with sour cream for plenty of flavor, added a little bottled ranch to keep it moist, and not adding the bacon (!) until almost ready to serve. For a little kick, I added in some southwest ranch and used pepperjack for the cheese. Also, I added sliced ripe olives and thawed (but not cooked) and well drained peas and carrots and 3 pepper/onion mix, along with some fresh chopped green onions. The carrots gave it a nice little crunch. Added a few halved cherry tomatoes on top along with the bacon. I wonder if a little salad oil would solve the dry problem some of the other reviewers had? I will keep this recipe and be glad to take it to another potluck for more complements!

Southwestern Turkey Soup
WONDERFUL!!!! Unlike many soups, this one has plenty of flavor from day one! I rarely take time to rate recipes, but this one is a keeper. A great way to use up the less desirable leftover parts of the turkey. Like many reviewers, I found the basic recipe easily adaptable to what I had in my kitchen. (I used chicken broth, extra turkey and spices, 1 can each of fire roasted salsa tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, mild tomatoes w/ green chilis, corn, and a drained, rinsed can black beans-no avacado.) We had it "plain" (brothy) today; will wait a day or two and add sour cream and cheeses to leftovers to make it different. LOVED IT! Thanks, Doug, for sharing.
