Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
Fantastic recipe as it is but I tweaked it a bit to suit family tastes. I took the advice from previous reviewers and reduced the oil to 1/4 cup (for 12 servings) and added 1/4 cup water, then I changed the vinegar to 1/2 cup red wine vinegar and 1/4 cup balsamic. LOVE it! We're big-time salad eaters in our house so I'm always trying different dressing recipes and this one is a huge hit with all of us. I've made it when having company over and a friend who said that they didn't like "Caucasian food" could not stop eating the salad with this dressing - pasta with cucumber, peppers, black olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, onions and this dressing ;)

Chocolate Brittle Surprise
I've been making this recipe for many years and it's always a huge hit. I prefer to cook the butter and brown sugar mixture on top of the stove and that helps to cut the baking time down to 5 mins. There are so many variations that can be made, such as white chocolate with crushed candy canes or with dried cranberries and chopped pistachios, various nuts, peanut butter chips, etc. I've tried making them with graham crackers instead of the saltines and we found them to be WAY too sweet! Lastly, I pop the tray into the freezer to hurry the cooling along because my sons can't wait for them to cool before "taste-testing" them for me :)

Sesame Noodle Salad
I brought this dish to a family barbecue and it went over really well. I followed the recipe except I reduced the sesame oil to 1/4 cup, and that was still too much. When I make this again, which I will, I intend to only use 2-3 tablespoons of sesame oil. Otherwise, it was fantastic!
