Tortellini Salad
This is a great salad. But what makes it really different is the balsamic vinegar in the dressing. Bottled dressing might be easier but it lacks the class that the balsamic vinegar gives the salad. As is it is great. If you desire a "saucier" salad, double the given recipe.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak
A pair of cheap steaks, some leftover garden tomatoes and a Saturday afternoon - fantastic! Our whole family including children loved this. We did it like the picture and served it over well seasoned mashed potatoes. The flavor was so great. I substituted fresh tomatoes for canned but I don't think that is a significant difference. But I did do it in the oven instead. 275 - 300 degrees for 4 hours.

Better Than Best Fried Chicken
I used golden mushroom soup and chicken legs (14). I had to add to the flour mixture toward the end but beside that I used all the spices it called for but doubled them per the other reviews. I kept it crispy while cooking other chicken by putting the cooked pieces directly on the oven rack in a 200 degree oven with a baking sheet under them on a lower rack for the oil drips. Very good! I would add more spices but it wasn't bad considering true southern cooking is usually on the blander side of the scale.
