World's Best Lasagna
It is the world's best lasagna! I followed the recipe exactly (but I did sub. ground turkey for ground beef) and it was so good. I didn't find it too salty like some other reviewers did, maybe that had to do with my turkey sub. The sauce was fantastic, very flavorful! I let it simmer for about 45 mins and used oven ready lasagna noodles. I love the fact that there wasn't a lot of ricotta cheese. In a lot of lasagnas the ricotta can dry out and it's all ricotta and pasta-not my favorite. I often end up scooping most of the ricotta out. However, with this recipe the ricotta is such a thin layer. It's more meat and sauce, which makes this recipe so good. I actually had extra meat and sauce after layering the lasagna. A little something to snack on or give my husband a little taste of what's to come!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast
The first time I made this recipe I followed it exactly and I thought it was good, not great. For some reason the sauce wasn't that flavorful to me, maybe it was too watery. I made it today and followed the recipe but instead of mixing the dry packets with water, I mixed it with a can of mushroom soup and a couple tbsp of water. I poured that over the veggies, including quartered red potatoes, then put it on low for 7 hours (I had a smaller roast- a little less than 2lbs). It turned out awesome! The sauce was a great consistency (not too thick or thin). Adding the soup saved me from having to thicken it with corn starch, which would've been a pain. I think I could've cooked it for less time too, maybe 6.5 hours instead. But I loved the way it turned out, definitely a keeper!

Candied Yams
Easy recipe. Only thing I recommend would be to puree the yams (I pureed them in a food processor) before placing them in a baking dish. I made them last Thanksgiving without pureeing them and it tasted good, but the consistency/presentation wasn't appealing. So this year I pureed them and there weren't any leftover!
