Lentil Soup
I made this according to the recipe exactly. I use broth vs water. My family thought it was good. No one had seconds or anything but both kids cleaned their bowls and agreed it was tasty. It's a very nourishing dish so perhaps these folks who say it's inedible are used to more commercial flavors. We joke that we are kale and quinoa people even tho we eat meat and dairy. So there is no accounting for preferences. Give it a try as written and you can always Dr it up later. It's a very inexpensive dish to make so what have you got to lose. I used my dutch oven with a lid while cooking and needed no water added. 4 of us ate and we had 4 or 5 cups left over. I froze it for a Sunday lunch.

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II
I made this exactly as written and it turned out great. It was not thickening and I read through the reviews here and rather than mess with thickening agents, I upped the heat as others advised. It worked like a charm. I think I will use half brown and half white sugar next time to add some depth to the flavor but my kids were trying to talk me in to letting them have a small bowl of it to eat like pudding. I made 3-8" cakes and put 1 cup of this on each layer and frosted the outside with a thick chocolate cake as some mentioned it not sticking on the sides of cakes well. I didnt dam the edges but had little ooze issues. We havent cut and eaten this cake yet as it is for our 11th anniversary tomorrow night, but it looks amazing, tastes great alone and was a total sucess. Thanks for a great recipe.

World's Best Lasagna
we have used canned sauce for lasagna for years but I was in charge of food for a pre-wedding dinner and opted to go from scratch. I'm really glad I did. I doubled the recipe to have enough for 12 safely if everyone had seconds. Several did and we still had about 6 peices left over. But we didnt mind. Not only was I able to ensure that the meal was gluten free. (for the groom) But it was so much better. I used fresh basil vs dried and added more than called for. We love basil. And I dont think it was too much. The crowd was so impressed that the whole thing was from scratch, too. I usually cook this was but lasagna is so time consuming anyhow that I skip the sauce. One alteration that I made (as is a traditional family thing) was I boiled 6-8 eggs to hard boiled, mashed them up and mixed them into the ricotta mixture. It bulks that layer and adds a nice flavor. It is just how we have always done it. It feels incomplete without it. Anyhow, great recipe, great meal and great memory.
