Fiesta Salad
I was making a Mexican-themed dinner one night, and figured I'd make a salad with the fresh produce I had. I threw in anything that reminded me of Mexican food. Thankfully, this Fiesta Salad turned out, and the combination of salsa and ranch dressing is one we now use on sandwiches, burgers and more.

Peanut Butter Delights
I've been making these sweet peanut butter parfaits for years, so I do it by memory now. Instead of sprinkling the top of the Peanut Butter Delights with chocolate chips, use chocolate syrup to create a gourmet design.
