Split Pea and Ham Soup II
Simple. Inexpensive. Nostalgic. Goodness. Stick to the recipe. I had to add in a cup of cubed potatoes because I used too much broth but if I didn't I wouldn't have. This recipe is perfect as-is if you are in the mood for a taste of Grandma's house

Crabmeat Salad
Fantastic! Simple! Perfect! I used chive onions and served on a bed of romaine with tomato wedges I really am impressed how good and simple (not even salt and pepper added!) I'D ADD A PHOTO BUT I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO TAKE A PIC BEFORE IT WAS DEVOURED! Thank you!!

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)
Great recipe and well laid out and explained as another reviewer also wrote. I did a couple things a bit different. I didn't brown the meat first (I usually do and yes it makes a difference). I threw everything but the chayote in to the slow cooker and left it on low. :) Enjoy this is a good one!
