Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
This was a good base recipe but the batter came out rather thick. I ended up adding a bit more than 1/4 c. of milk. After making the first pancake I also added 1.5 tsp. of vanilla extract and and extra tablespoon of sugar. It turned out well. The second time I made it with these adjustments and added fresh summer blueberries and it was much better. Great basic recipe you can tweak to your liking.

Best Italian Sausage Soup
This was pretty good. My first time making soup and it turned out well. Def use sausage. I used plain Italian seasoned sausage but I think next time I will spring for the sweet sausage just b/c I love the taste. (Italian seasoned was on sale this week) I used 1 can of whole tomatoes and one can of diced to even out the big and little chunks. I love tomatoes so the big ones were a treat. Def wait to put the noodles in until ready to serve and if you aren't gong to eat the whole pot, leave them out. They do suck up the broth. I also added a 1/2 bag of baby spinach for more veggies. I didn't need to add salt since the broth had salt, the tomatoes had some, and the sausage was seasoned. Be careful if you do. I tried the suggestions of adding parmesan when serving--- a wonderful idea. Another way to add flavor w/o too much salt!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat
So easy, flavorful, and delicious. I used Tapatio Mexican hot sauce, used a can of tomatoes w/ chiles in place of just the water, and beef brisket. First time making a big cut of meat in the slow cooker. It turned out great. Since i used tomatoes, the flavor was even better the next day. Made tacos and beef enchiladas but I could see how making a spicy beef sandwich on crusty bread would be a great idea. Highly recommend.
