Manicotti Italian Casserole
VARIATION: Based on other reviews of this being just another dish, I offer the following:I used Classico Sauce(1)Cabernet & Marinara w/herbs,(1) jar of Spicy Red peppers & sauce, and (1) jar of Spicy tomatoe & Basil sauce; 6 oz of Mancini fried peppers, 1/2 pack of Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes, (2) garlic cloves,(1) med.size white onion, and (2) pinches of Tones Presti's Spicy spaghetti seasoning. I cooked the sauce (mixed with all of the ingredients other than the noodles) until the mushrooms were cooked. Then, in a large slow cooker,I layered in the sauce, then 1/2 of the noodles, then cheese (Kraft five cheeses finely shredded) and continued layering until gone. I also chopped pepperoni and cooked it in the sausage/ground beef, onions, and garlic. To finish I layered the top with whole pepperoni slices and a final layer of the chese. I let it cook for two more hours giving plenty of time for the pepperoni on top to add its flavour and the cheese to melt. It does make a full cooker, but the taste was far from bland, however if too spicy, add a few sugar cubes to taste.

Bread Pudding III
I have to admit that I read most of the reviews and tried to incorporate some of the ideas. First, I sprayed the pan with PAM for baking instead of using butter to grease the glass baking pan. I was concerned about the amount of bread before I started, so I used twelve slices because I didn't want it too runny. It wasn't until I had prepared the mixture ( a few cocktails and baseball game between Tampa Bay and Boston) that I re-read the instructions which indicated stale bread, however that being said, I used twelve slices right out of the package. I also compensated using just a slight amount of milk in addition to that which was part of the recipie to compensate in case twelve was too many slices of bread. I used a combination of dried raisins and spiced apples and threw in a 1/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts (personal favorites). I still used just the six eggs and required remaining ingrediants to complete the desert. I continued to watch the game while it baked and was I surprised how it turned out-absolutely. I was amazed that baking, drinking, and baseball went hand in hand, so to speak. In any event the bread pudding turned out to be very moist, VEREY, VERY tasty, and equivalent to that which I have had in some of the best eating establishments in Des Moines. Thanks for the recipie and extra pounds THAT i AM SURE i WILL GAIN I am sure to gain. A small amount of maple syrup over the top set things off in a great fashion. BASEBALL, COCKTAILS, AND USING ALL R

Frank's Spicy Alabama Onion Beer Chili
Congrats to "FRANK" for this recipie. I read as though it would be "just right" for me regarding the spices, however for my wife - she doesn't eat the really spicy stuff. So I didn't use the (4) peppers, rather I used two of Ortega's small cans of diced green chili peppers. I was more than pleased with how the taste of the chili was on the first day, but as with all chili, the second day was better yet. I was able to enjoy the heat of the spices, which stay on the tongue for a brief moment - not too long to not taste the chili, coupled with the sweetness of all the onion and the taste of the beer flavour. My wife enjoyed the taste and complemented the recipie due to the spices not overpowering the taste. That was the moment of realizing chili success.
