Mom's Best Macaroni Salad
I made this again today, for the 5th time! Love this recipe! It's so fresh tasting and the vegies make it nice and crisp. I do omit half the sugar and only add enough dressing to moisten nicely (I usually have some left over) but to each his own. A keeper!!!! Thank you for sharing!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie
This was very, very good! For those saying it was too thick... it's supposed to be! Spices were perfect! Thanks for a great recipe that I'll keep going back to! I did saute my vegies (12 oz frozen mix) with the onion and celery like another suggested... simple and so tasty!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I
I don't know what to think of these... they taste awesome but the cooking process is a guessing game. They browned way too fast on the edges even at 350 degrees and this was using my convection oven. Perhaps they need less butter. Sorry for the mediocre rating, but I don't have the time to mess with difficult cookies ;) I followed the recipe less 1/3 C white sugar. The dough's consistency was fine, it's just that baking issue...
