Buffalo Chicken Soup
Absolutely loved this soup...taste just like deconstructed buffalo chicken. Only made two minor changes...use 1/3 cup Franks instead of 1/4 cup (we like spicy). Lastly garnished soup with blue cheese crumbles. This recipe was simple to is a keeper.

Pasta with Peas and Sausage
Five stars with a few personal modifications to lower the fat content a bit and add more flavor. I still used 1lb bulk pork Italian sausage, next time I may try italian turkey sausage. After browning the sausage and draining the fat I added 2 tablespoonsful flour before adding 1&1/2 cups fat free half &half, along with the peas. This allowed the sauce to have a slightly thicker consistancy. I also added 1/2 t Tony Cachere's creole season, 1 t fresh cracked pepper and salt. Skipped the addition of butter, didnt feel it was necessary and it wasnt missed. Finally I added the parmesean to the sauce as well as a little more on top. Delicious and will defiantely make again. Nice and easy recipe for a week night or nice enough for gatherings and holidays since so easy to double.

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie
This has the potential to be a very good slow cooker recipe. Made as is, with only the addition of a can or drained rotel, the end product was dry. It had all the right flavors but the meat mixure need to be doubled as well as more moisture added. Additional enchilada sauce and not draining the rotel would probably help greatly. I also used black beans instead of kidney beans just out of personal preference. Cooking time could have been shortened by atleast one hour but it would probably vary in different slow cookers. Additional cheese would also be good if added in the final hour of cooking as well. I will definately make this again with a few modifications.
