Mint Cheesecake Squares
I don;t know if anyone ever responded to your question about where to find the thin chocolate wafer cookies. They are Nabisco brand and have been around for years and years, sold in the cookie section of the supermatket. You also can purchase the chocolate wafer crumbs, available where graham cracker crumbs are sold in the dessert aisle.

Southwest Chicken Skillet
Excellent and easy. I used boneless turkey fillet, cubed, instead of the chicken. The vegetable mixture wasn;t exactly what the recipe called for (I couldn't find it) but it was similar. I sprinkled the crisped tortill astrips and cheese on at the end and did NOT cook it. The cheese melts without cooking and I was afraid the tortilla strips would be mush. I used a small pkg of corn torillas and cut into strips, then crisped in the oven. My husband loved it also.

Cranberry Crumb Bars
I made these for a nature center reception and they were a huge hit. I also used them as one of 15 varieties of confections for my Holiday gift trays and baskets. I was so surprised at how well they stored - at least 2 weeks, chilled. They were everything that the description said they would be. I will add this recipe to my computer recipe files. Wonderful flavor!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef Stew
I tried this over the weekend and thought it was great. I used boneless beef chuck, cubed, instead of the stew meat. I find it not as tough. I doubled the recipe for my 5 1/2 to 6-QT slow cooker and cooked on high 5 hours, then added frozen Italian beans with the seasoning and cooked another 25 minutes because of the large quantity. I couldn't find plain tomatoes so used those with Italian seasoning. I think they might have even been better. When I bought ingredients I wasn't planning on doubling the recipe but since I had 2 lbs of chuck roast and the large slow cooker I decided it would be better doubled. I used one 28 oz can of tomatoes and one 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes. I think it might have been even better. I served it with a sprinkling of shredded Romano cheese. The robust flavors were a nice change of pace. It's a "keeper." It was plenty thick for our tastes.

Cranberry Crumb Bars
It would be nice if this recipe used a pkg of cranberries (3 cups) since that is the size they are now available, otherwise with purchasing 2 pkgs there will be cranberries left.

Almond Poppy Tea Cookies
Great recipe. I made these with 1 TSP lemon extract in place of the almond extract in the cookie base and 1/2 TSP lemon extract in the icing. I omitted the almonds and sprinkled a few sprinkles of yellow sugar on the glaze before it hardened. It is a very nice "tea cookie."

Almond Streusel-Cherry Cheesecake Bars
Excellent tasting, easy recipe. Difficult to spoon cherry filling over cream cheese mixture and get it relatively even. Would make again. Might add a TBSP lemon juice to cream cheese mixture.

Excellent cookie and nice change of pace from regular thumbprint cookies. Well liked by all and espcially nice on Holiday cookie tray assortments.

Spicy Pepper Steak
This was a 5-ingredient very easy recipe. I used 1 lb stir fry veggies for the bell pepper and onion (which I bought in the produce dept already cut - included onion, broccoli flowerets, red pepper strips and julienne carrots). I might have used a bit more hoisin sauce because there were more veggies. I served it over crisp noodles. It is definitely a keeper.

What a wonderful recipe!! I used your suggestion of 2 TBSP olive oil and also used orange juice concentrate. It does not need any more oil than the 2 TBSP. Also, to keep the avocados from browning, slice them into the same bowl with the orange sections and toss gently. This salad is a great accompaniment to many dishes. I served it with the Sloppy Joe Casserole (made with ground bison).
