Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Tried making this recipe as written. The first pancake was too thick and took too long to cook throughout. So, I diluted with more milk. After tasting the pancakes, all I tasted was salt. Will not make these again. My son did not finish his pancake. I`ve tried better pancake recipes from this site. Wish I had saved the last one! But this was definitely not one for the recipes box. Update: I decided to give this another try. I probably used sea salt last time, because I didn't notice the salt this time around. It was still too thick (like cookie batter). Don't know what I'm doing wrong. So again, I added more milk to make the batter less doughy. I tilted the pan to spread the still thick batter, but it cooked evenly this time and tasted incredibly good. I added some vanilla extract, almond essence, cinnamon and nutmeg. Delicious.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini
Delicious and easy! I've added this recipe to my favourites. I tweaked here and there because I used two packages of tortellini, but for the most part stayed true to the recipe. I love spinach, so I included the bunch. I sautéed a whole clove of garlic with half a large onion. Used half diced, half crushed tomato sauce. Instead of full cream, I used light cream, a little more basil, salt and pepper to taste. Definitely want to try again with sliced veggie Italian sausages and sautéed mushrooms. Terrific recipe. Thanks Lela.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese
This Mac & cheese was very good. I would definitely make this again. I did make a couple changes. I used 1/3 package of sharp cheddar and 1/3 package of taco mixed cheeses. I also roughly crumbled some whole wheat crackers on top and added some pats of butter over the crackers. I might try sautéing the onions next time, but it was tasty as is.
