Ranch, Bacon, and Parmesan Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
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

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
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.
