Buttery Soft Pretzels
These were amazing! I've never made pretzels before so I wasn't sure what to expect the first time around. I followed another reviewer's recommendations on less flour and less baking soda in the water, and they didn't turn out pretzel like, more like a bread texture. So the second time around I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out wonderful! They had the crunchy, soft texture I was looking for. I sprinkled some with sea salt, some with cinnamon and sugar, and some with ranch seasoning. So good!

Chicken Lasagna II
This was very good. I also used spinach in it as well to add some more color and texture. My husband raved about this...said it was better than my regular lasagna! He hasn't stopped talking about it since we've had it.

Hot Fudge Sauce I
I made this a bit differently. Used 3 squares of chocolate, 3 Tbsp butter, 2 c. sugar and 1 can evap. milk. It would always turn out grainy like the chocolate would not mix with the milk correctly, until tonight when I figured out the secret! I poured it into my blender and processed it until smooth, and it was perfect! Yum, homemade hot fudge sauce is the best!
