Easy Chicken Tetrazzini
This recipe was wonderful but I did change it up a bit just to make it easier on myself since I'm working and have a baby. I cooked the chicken in the crockpot for 10 hours along with the liquids mentioned in the recipe. I used chicken broth instead of the bouillon. I also added some seasonings to the soup mixture that I would usually add to chicken (montreal seasoning and garlic powder). I shredded the chicken up after it was done cooking, added a head of broccoli florets and added everything in one big bowl and stirred it up (even with the broccoli and all of the juice from the chicken/soup mixture and cooked noodles). I poured it in a 13X9 pan and topped with the shredded cheddar and used about 1 cup of panko breadcrumbs on top and then baked. It was tremendous! You've got to try this tasty recipe!

Bacon and Swiss Quiche
I think this was so tasty! It was my first time making quiche and I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I didn't have any swiss cheese! So I substituted some chedder/mozzarella blend and it was great. I did use 3 eggs and a DEEP dish pie crust. It was filled to the brim. Leaked out a little! I'd definitely stick to the 3 eggs! I didn't flour coat the bacon either. Cooked just fine without it. Try this!! It really is delicious!

Tortellini Soup II
This was *outstanding*. I made some changes, like using a box of vegetable stock (32oz) and then added 3 additional cups of water. I also used a 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes and 2 cans of diced tomatoes with their juice. I had 1.5 lb italian sausage so I used that, rather than buy links and take it out of the casings. I also bought a 20 oz container of tortellini and used that. I basically threw everything in the pot and LOVED the results. This was one of the best soups I've ever eaten and definitely the best soup I've ever made! Yum!!
