Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns
These were absolutely DELICIOUS. The only change I made was to use walnuts instead of pecans. Other than that, the recipe was straightforward and I enjoyed every minute of baking these. Definitely takes patience, but SO worth it.

Stuffed Shells IV
I made these for my boyfriend's family and they enjoyed it TREMENDOUSLY. (Hello BONUS!) These really were delicious and the turkey meat made it lighter than say another recipe that uses beef. I, myself, made a few changes, which included: a. 1 cup skim ricotta and 1 cup of cottage cheese instead of the 2 cups cottage cheese. I only did this because I don't enjoy the taste or texture of cottage cheese, but in reality you couldn't taste it when baked. b. Once the spinach was completely thawed out, I squeezed small handfuls of it, in order to remove the water (as to prevent watery-ness when baked). c. A good handful of chopped parsley d. I only boiled the pasta shells for 8 min, because I didn't want them too soft and mushy when I baked them e. I used smoked mozzarella rather than fresh and grated it myself Lastly, I think it could've used an additional clove of garlic.
