Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Orzo
Yum, a keeper! I used two 7.5 oz jars of sun-dried tomatoes (undrained), 4 oz of fresh basil, 2 or 3 oz of Parmesan (a better grade), a bit of salt and some goodly shakes of pepper to a whole box of orzo. I added olive oil after I blended the pesto in the food processor, and only enough to make the consistency blendable with the orzo. I want to try this with feta, and adding sliced olives would be great for either cheese - if my family didn't have a tendency to pick them out!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
WOW it was that easy and that good. I cook sunday dinner for my husband and a bachelor friend of ours and we all three loved this. My take on it after reading other reviews was to use two cans cream of chicken as stated in the recipe, but to use chicken broth instead of water. I added salt, pepper and poultry seasoning to the chicken breasts when I put them in the crock pot. 90 minutes before dinner, I added one 16-oz can of biscuits cut into thumb-size pieces and made sure they were submerged. I also threw in one bag of frozen mixed veggies that I microwaved and drained. I didn't want to slow the dumpling cook time, and I didn't want the veggies to cook to mush. I was very happy with how it all came out.

Italian Beef Sandwiches
Better than the recipe my mom used, this one has a little kick in the rub, and the flavor is unbeatable. Perfection.
