Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole
My boyfriend and I made this for Thanksgiving. I had reduced the sugar and only used 3/4s the amount recommended. I actually found that it wasn't as sweet as I imagined it would be so next time I make this, I will use the full amount. The yams came out really soft. Like others stated, I wasn't sure about the butter, pecan and flour mixture - was it suppose to be melted butter or softened? I don't know but I melted it first and it was not pretty looking but tasted good as a subtle topping. I plan to use this recipe over yams with roasted marshmallows any day.

Stuffed Shells III
This recipe was pretty good. I read the various negative reviews about it being too salty so I listened to the advice of the good reviews saying to cut the salt in half. I actually used garlic salt in place of the salt but I used only 1 teaspoon of it. I was surprised how many shells it produced. I doubled the recipe because I was planning on making enough for 15-20 people for my son's cub scout group and I managed to make 3 - 9x13 pans worth with about half a box of shells left and about 2 cups of the ricotta cheese left over. The kids liked it and so did the adults so I will be making this in the future.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet
My first time making marinara and it really was the easiest recipe ever. It was pretty tasty only I probably should have added a bit of sugar as recommended by another member to help the acidity but it still have a great flavor. Will make again!
