Shortbread Cookies II
I halved the recipe and I still got more than 2 dozen cookies. I don't have a cookie press so I just rolled up the dough into 2 logs, wrapped them up in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer for a bit before putting them in the fridge overnight. Then cut them in 1/2 inch slices and onto the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Turned out perfect in 12 minutes!!

Cajun Chicken Pasta
Turned out really well with a few adjustments: I seasoned the chicken with a good amount of cajun seasoning, a little cayenne, garlic powder and basil and let it hang out while I cut all the veggies. I sauteed the chicken but 2 chicken breast halves looked too much for the dish so I took some out (I made 3/4 of a 16oz bag of brown rice penne). I then added some garlic and the veggies: 1 medium red onion, mushrooms (next time I'll cut them thicker), and one red bell pepper (next time I'll throw that in a little bit before the rest of the veggies). I sprinkled in about 3 tablespoons of flour and cooked it a bit. Then deglazed with some white wine and then the cream and some milk. Next time I'll use like only a 1/2 cup of cream because the sauce thickened up nicely because of the roux so I would use evaporated milk or half & half and milk. I kept seasoning with cajun seasoning, basil, salt and pepper. I didnt have lemon pepper so I just added lemon juice from half a lemon. At the very end I added about 3/4 bag of baby spinach and some pasta water to thin out the sauce and finally some parmesan cheese.

Lasagna Alfredo
I didnt follow the recipe exactly so it didnt turn out just perfect. I read some of the reviews and decided to add some more chicken, but it turned out to be wayy too much chicken. I thought there wasn't enough sauce. The lasagna turned out to be a bit dry. I also used the oven-ready lasagna noodles, so maybe there needs to be more sauce for those. Next time I'll use more sauce or just thin out the sauce so the noodles have extra liquid to soak up. I also seasoned the ricotta/spinach mixture which was turned out good. The cooking time was also too much for my oven. Next time, I would cut down on the cooking down or cover the lasagna for the beginning of the cooking process. I also mixed all the sauce and the chicken together, but next time I would like to have some sauce without the chicken for the bottom and top layers of sauce. Also, mushrooms would be a good addition to this.
