World's Best Lasagna
Just made this Lasagna over the weekend. It is the World's Best!! My Italian stepson said it was amazing, better than his Mom's and Nana's. Now, that's an accolade. My Italian hubby loved it. I haven't eaten much lasagna in my life, so I am probably not a good judge, but it was very good. I went to Claros (Italian Deli here in SoCal) for their delicious sweet sausage and fresh Muzzarell, Parmesan and Ricotta. I used the Cento brand crushed tomatoes and took the advice of a reviewer, adding nutmeg to the Ricotta mixture. Another reviewer advised to buy Ricotta from an Italian deli; I did that, also. I also took the advice from another reviewer and bought oven ready lasagna noodles. These were flat, not ruffled. They expand to the sides of the 9 x 13 pan as they cook. Another tip I took was to make up the lasagna, let it sit in the fridge overnight and take it out about 1/2 hour before baking. I probably had it out for and hour + and it baked beautifully. I made a double portion of the sauce because I was afraid I wouldn't have enough for the lasagna. I did and I froze it for another time. Now I have a great new recipe for company that I can prepare a day ahead, have no fuss the day of baking. Put together with Tuscan bread freshly baked in the oven and a Caesar salad and some Italian antipasto - Sublime!

Frosted Reindeer Cookies
I have been making Reindeer cookies from Pillsbury sugar cookie dough for a number of years. I use the chocolate covered pretzels for the antlers and red gum drops for the nose. The grandchildren love them. Another way to make reindeer treats is to make a shortbread recipe, bake it in a pie plate and make the reindeer as if you were making slices of pie. Great to take to a potluck or wherever treats are expected.

Beef Tips and Noodles
I was very eager to try this recipe as beef and noodles can be such a delicious comfort meal selection. I followed the recipe, using top sirloin (the recipe didn't state a preference of cut. I bought the meat from a butcher counter that is known for their good meat). The beef mixture was bland, actually, almost flavorless, and I was disappointed. My husband was also disappointed and asked me what kind of meat was in the dish, not even realizing it was top grade beef. He won't eat the leftovers. Thinking as I read the recipe, this would be a great dish to serve company as it is so easy to prepare. I will say, it did taste better the second day. I do like the method used in preparing the meat and gravy portion. It is easy and convenient. I'll have to search for a different recipe to achieve a better, more hearty flavor. I don't like to be critical of someone's recipe, especially that I see many of the posters really liked the dish, but, I won't use this recipe again
