Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Delicious! Someone mentioned that using ricotta would be more Italian. Provolone is an Italian cheese, too, and the Provolone/sour cream combo, in my opinion anyway, is much tastier than ricotta. Ziti may be traditionally made with ricotta, but personally I'd rather sacrifice authenticity for more flavorful results! This is an excellent recipe, as is. The only change I made was to add garlic. Oh, and I used penne instead of ziti only because I had penne on hand. I will definitely make this again!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
YUM! I would give this more stars if possible! I could seriously eat this stuff by the spoonful. Not exactly health food, but SO DELICIOUS! I used 3 cups powdered sugar instead of 4. The perfect frosting for the yummy Pumpkin Cake III recipe on this site.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Absolutely delicious! I wanted to bake another one as soon as the first was gone. :) I also used about 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and 3/4 cup oil in lieu of 1 1/4 cups oil. I added an additional 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp allspice, and 1/8 tsp ginger. Glazed with JJ's Cream Cheese Frosting II, also on this site. Even my mom, who is not into sweets, said how good it was and kept a piece to snack on!

Almond Cranberry Squash Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
The only change I made to this recipe was to substitute pecans for the almonds (because I don't care for almonds). I found this dish much too sweet for my taste. I would, however, make this again, omitting the cranberry sauce. I scraped the cranberries off and enjoyed just the squash mixture with the nut mixture. I think the cranberry sauce just makes it too sweet - for my taste, anyway!
