Best Green Bean Casserole
Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I used fresh, yellow and green, beans for color (if you use fresh, microwave beans for about 5-7 min on high before adding other ing.) and mixed everything all together(including about 1/2 of the fried onions) except a little cheese which I set aside, to add to the top before baking. I also mixed the cheddar cheese with about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese before adding to the top. I didn't add the remaining onions until right before serving, to keep them crunchy and it was delish! REMINDER: Do not add milk to soup before using. I am sure that is why some people complained about it being "runny"

Creamy Chicken Lasagna
Made this the other night and it turned out delicious! I added 2 tablespoons of pesto to cream cheese mixture along with about 3/4 cup shaved parmesan cheese and just enough broth to soften the cream cheese mixture then I just tossed the shredded chicken (pre-broiled from store) with 1/2 the marinara sauce before spreading on top of cream cheeses and noodles, a layer of chicken then noodles and cream cheese, then repeat. You do need more noodles then called for, unless you use a smaller casserole dish (9x9) but then, it will be more dense, which is what we like. Sprinkled a blend of mozzarella and sharp cheddar cheese on top with some seasoned Panko bread crumbs and cover with foil and bake. Take foil off for the last few minutes. Bubbly and delicious it really is the best comfort food for the fall season.

Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce
I made this cake for my mom's birthday party and it was an extremely easy and delicious recipe! It was very rich and if you are a chocolate lover you will LOVE this cake! I also, used the Choc. Genache recipe from this site instead of the caramel sauce,to go with it which was also very easy! I used raspberries for decor on top along with a light sprinkle of powdered sugar and the only request I rec'd was "are there anymore raspberries and do you have any milk?" It got rave reviews from everyone, even my 5 yr old nephew who is very picky (he asked for more berries). If you are a dark chocolate lover like I am, use 70% cocoa chips if you can find them ( I bought mine at Whole Foods grocery store). The cake is very rich, so thin slices are perfect and you can serve more guests, if they don't fight over the last slice, like mine did. I suggest serving it with fresh berries, a small scoop of vanilla ice cream or possibly some red wine would be a great companion to cut the richness, other wise follow the recipe exactly. You wont be disappointed. I gave this 5 stars (even though I didn't make the sauce) because it was sooo easy to put together and it tasted so decadent. Enjoy!
