Sweet and Crunchy Salad
Great recipe! Sometimes I won't even soften the top ramen noodles. I add them uncooked but broken up so they are crunchy. My kids love it this way even more. Sometimes I've added fresh minced garlic - 1 or 2 cloves to the vegetable oil to spice up the salad a bit more. Sometimes I add soy sauce with the rice vinegar and a tablespoon of peanut butter to make it more of a thai type salad. So easy to vary this recipe and it's always good! You can even add chopped cooked leftover chicken and it makes a main dish. During the winter I've added sliced red and green bell pepper to make it more holiday "ish". Wow. I could go on and on. Try it! You'll like it!

Mediterranean Chicken and Orzo Salad In Red Pepper Cups
This recipe turned out great! Made a bit different as I didn't have feta cheese or red bell peppers. I separately baked boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the oven. The orzo pasta dish was made earlier in afternoon and left to cool to room temperature. I used a lot of small cherry tomatoes and another whole tomatoe to use it up. Added 1 whole can of black olives (kids love them). Served this pasta on a plate with warm chicken served on top. I didn't use feta cheese (didn't have any) or put into red bell pepper cups. Just great. Perfect for hot summer dinner.

Tahini Butter Cookies
I made these cookies with some leftover Tahini. They were delicious and tasted so much like halvah (sesame candy). 2 of my 3 boys loved them. The one who did not like does not like halvah candy either. The one problem was the cookies crumbled and fell apart easily even after I let them cool 45 minutes on the cookie sheet. I used the insulated cookie sheet for baking, did not have any trouble removing them but they were fragile and would crumble or break in my hand. My solution was instead of serving as a cookie, was to put the remaining cookies in a glass mason jar. This is now being stored in the fridge. I will take a spoonful and sprinkle it over vanilla ice cream for a special dessert. Delish!!! I also placed 2-3 semisweet chocolate chips on each cookie while baking for variety. From now on this will be my solution for using leftover Tahini!
