Cataloging New Recipes

I tried some new recipes lately and while I have them pinned, I tend to forget them or make notes about whether or not I liked them so... Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore- Good-i used boneless skinless chicken breasts. I would have enjoyed some mushrooms in it, but all in all, easy & delicious. Honey Garlic Pork Chops- Pretty good even though I didnt have honey so. Yeah I will be trying these again Orzo with Parmesan and Basil (made this with the pork chops) Maybe I cooked the cheese for too long or had too much, it was very cheesy and thus made the noodles stick together. I'll try it again b/c I did enjoy the taste. Roasted Tomato Soup- I have way too many tomatoes from the garden and I just dont have the time to can them. I needed something to make that was a little hands off but used many tomatoes. I wish I had doubled this recipe as it really made about 4 servings. Also I would have omitted the red pepper. It was very very spicy and I would prefer basil to the spiciness.

If you cant tell I am in the cleaning out house mode. I was on the search for my favorite banana bread recipe and couldnt take the clutter anymore. So I am typing up some recipes here as my "virtual recipe box". Some I have made, some I have not, but I am sick of the paper. I'd just pin them or bookmark them, but quite a few I dont have a link for or they are so old the websites dont have them anymore. so the next few posts will be a plethera of recipes.
