Peanut Butter Cocoa No-Bake Cookies
My kids love these cookies and I love how quick and easy they are to make. I increased the cocoa to 1/2 cup and used 1 cup chunky peanut butter instead of the separate peanut butter and chopped peanuts. I have it on hand much more often! I also used my ice cream scoop to make the cookies really fast. I just spritz it with a touch of cooking spray first.

Fluffy Potato Casserole
Quick and easy! Light and fluffy! I used leftover Yukon Gold mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner and, following the advice from another reviewer, doubled everything except the cheese (I used Neufchatel), onion and egg. I didn't have fresh onion so I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder which worked great because my kids don't like to see onion. I also didn't put the french onions on the top. I did forget the flour but I don't know that it made a difference. I also added about 1/3 c real bacon chunks. I know that made a difference! My 13-year-old son had thirds! I think it would be good with green onions or a touch of parsley to add color.

Creamy Artichoke Pasta
WOW!! I couldn't believe how good this recipe is! I was wary with the low-fat stuff in it but it was great. My husband accidentally got me marinated artichokes when I just wanted ones in water and now I am glad he did! I used bowtie pasta and didn't use the full 12 ounces. It was so good I immediately ran a taste to my neighbor who also loves artichokes. She also gave it five stars. I can't wait to taste the leftovers tomorrow. Think I'll add some fresh tomatoes...
