Easy Beef Stroganoff
Very easy basic recipe. I season my ground beef with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes when browning the meat. I use corn starch to thicken the sauce rather than flour so it isn't chalky. I also add minced garlic to saute with the veggies. Lastly, I add 1/2 can cream of mushroom soup to thicken it.

Cajun Chicken Pasta
I liked this recipe a lot to change up dinner a bit. I marniated my chicken with Mrs. Dash ten minute marinade zesty garlic for about two hours (because I had the time). After the marinade I tossed the chicken in the zatarian's creole seasoning lightly, added some tabasco sauce as well. I sauteed the bell peppers, mushrooms, and onion first because if you don't the veggies will be too crisp. Then I cooked the chicken and then mixed the veggies with it to add it to the cream sauce. I did use a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce. It was delish!

Banana Crumb Muffins
This recipes is amazing! I used the butter (which is what the recipe calls for) instead of oil like others suggested and it tasted perfect. I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinammon to the batter as well as a few drops of vanilla extract. When I made the topping, I added in two extra tablespoons of butter and mixed with my hands to get the consistency I wanted and spread the topping on top of the muffin. It made twelve very nicely size muffins. Perfect!
