Convenient Vegetarian Lasagna
This was great but I did make quite a few changes: I used 15 oz. of Ricotta instead (because that's what I had, and it was great - wouldn't use more). I did not add parsley or green pepper or carrots. I sauteed the onion in a little olive oil (not a half cup), I then added some chopped kale and sauteed that too. I defrosted a bag of frozen broccoli and then put the broccoli, onions and kale in a food processor to puree it. I added half of this mix to the ricotta mixture and half to the tomato sauce. I baked for 45 minutes covered in aluminum foil and the remaining 15 minutes uncovered, broiled the top at the very end for a couple minutes. Will definitely make again!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy
Not sure I would classify this as *easy*...but maybe some people have better luck. Mine separated on my first try... I was using a non-stick pan and stirring constantly with flat whisk, because I read that suggestion in one of the reviews. I think I stirred to much. It turned into grainy clumpy sugar and floating liquid butter on top. I tried transferring it to a cast iron skillet to see if that would help. It didn't. I thought it was ruined, so I ran to the store to buy more butter and start over. Came back 30 minutes later and the clumpy separated mess was still sitting in the pan on the stove. It seemed like such a waste to throw it all away, so I decided to Google what causes this separation and came across some tips... The three tips I read were 1) Add hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time and continue very gently swirling. You can add up to 1/2 cup of water. I added a total of 4 tablespoons. 2) Add salt. I read that using salted butter can have better results, so I added more salt. Maybe 1/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp more. 3) I switched to a wooden spoon. IT WORKED!!! Slowly but surely, the separated yuckiness came together into a fluffy caramel mixture, and then smoothed out. It is chilling in the fridge right now, but when we tested the bit we dropped into ice water (to test if it was crunchy), it was great!

Almost No Fat Banana Bread
Love this! Read reviews and made the following changes: Used 1 c. white flour and 1/2 c. whole wheat flour. Used 1 whole egg rather than egg whites. Used 3 bananas. Added 1/2 cup walnuts.
