Italian Chicken Noodle Soup
I was very disappointed with this recipe, given there were so many positive reviews. The only thing I changed was that I did not include broccoli because my husband refuses anything with broccoli. I found the spice blend intrusive, did not like it at all. Could not detect much chicken flavor. I'm afraid most of it is going in the garbage, if I don't think of a way to tone it down and make it palatable. I've had good chicken soup, and this is not it. I'm puzzled as to why it was so well received.

1-2-3 Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
I won't keep this recipe, won't make it again. I'll go back to my tried and true old time recipe, which has many more ingredients, and is more time-consuming, but it makes a much tastier, richer cookie. These were dry, not flavorful, did not bake crisp and tasty. I considered adding an egg, the way some reviewers had done to compensate for the dryness, but I added extra peanut butter instead. Very disappointing results.

Creamy Chicken and Rigatoni
Major disappointment after reading the positive comments on this recipe. Very runny, close to inedible (I served it in pasta bowls). I did use the fat free 1/2&1/2; big mistake. Also could not find the veggie mix, but used a similar stir fry mix. I don't want to throw out the leftovers - don't like waste - so I think I'll try adding mayo and serving it as a cold mac salad. Or, maybe cooking it again with cornstarch so it's not so runny. Help me out here, guys!
