Cavatini II
I had a dinner party last night. I was running a bit late, so I just did Directions #1 and #2, as I didn't have time to put the cheese and bake it. The sauce was delicious!!! To the sauce, I added broccoli, mild Italian sausage (would've preferred "hot"), another 32 oz of pre-made sauce (so 64 total...just 32 was too thick), 2 more cloves of garlic, a lot of Italian seasoning, tablespoon of cumin, a teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne. Also added salt and sugar. It was really great, my guests had seconds, and one of my friends told me that if I made it for her, she would pay me. haha This morning I was able to finish the recipe so I could have it for lunch. I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta ($1 versus $8...its ridic). It was delicious! I would advise is to cover the pan with aluminum foil before putting it in the oven so the cheese on top doesn't get burnt. I'm going to make this over and over again.

Romano Chicken
At the end of this month, we're having a dinner party/game night and did a test meal with this recipe (we want a less fussy meal so we can also enjoy the party). Love this! We weren't sure that the microwave would do the trick, never cooked meat like this before. Delightfully surprised! It was very juicy and all the way cooked through. And even though I tweaked the recipe a bit (see below), it was incredibly delicious. Totally going to make this again. We didn't have tarragon or basil, so we used Italian seasoning. We also didn't have swiss so we used cheddar. We used a glass baking dish in the microwave, no toothpicks (just put the end of the rolls down) and had no problems. Keeps really well for the next day. Reheat in microwave a little at a time versus overheating, (the cheese will melt out too much and be inedible).

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Crisp edges and chewy middles as promised. Dummy proof and incredibly delicious. Perfect. But...I like my cookies a little less chocolate-y, so I only put 1 and 1/4 cup of chocochips. And I bake them for 12 mins, otherwise they won't twist off the cookie sheet easily.
