Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole
This recipe works much better if you use (1) one lb bag of hash browns. I think that's why some people are complaining of it being dry. Also I used a 4 tbsp of butter. Instead of chopping up onion and running the risk that hubby would flip out, I grated about 1 tbsp of onion. Potatoes and onions are good buddies and next time I will actually chop up the onion and saute it a little in a pan, then add it to the mixture. I used Campbells healthy request cream of chicken to cut back on salt, I also didn't add any salt. I only put in maybe 1/2 cup of cheese, hubby is not a big cheese fan. But I will increase it next time. I added 1 spoonful of sour cream. I baked it @ 350 covered (with foil) for 30 min and then baked uncovered for another 30. It was not dried out and not greasy. It did lack flavor but I had to make changes due my husband and his preferences. Potatoes need a lot of love and I will be sure to add more onion, increase the cheese and maybe use regular cream of chicken soup, instead of the healthy request, the next time I make this. Definitely a comfort food and one I am happy to add to my rotation. I made this with pork chops and green beans.

Ghirardelli(R) Magic Cookie Bars
I made mine a little different, I wanted to cut down on some of the sugar. Not a big fan of sweetened condensed milk -- it's just TOO sweet. However, this is the glue that holds it altogether. Here's what I did: for the crust I used 1 stick of melted butter and 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs, combined in a bowl and pressed into my 9x13 sprayed with non-stick spray pan, then I drizzled the sweeten condensed milk down the length of the pan and again width wise. I probably used no more than half the can. Then I proceeded to add my walnuts, MINI chocolate chips, and coconut. After each new addition I pressed them down into the crust. I didn't measure the nuts, chocolate chips, or coconut...just sprinkled an even layer with each. I chose mini chocolate chips because I felt they would stick better. I baked it for 25 min. I allowed them to finish cooling in the fridge. I cut them an hour or so later and they cut nice. They hold up well! So you don't have to use the WHOLE can of milk. I want it to be sweet but not overly sweet.

Cookies for Rookies
This is a decent cookie. I didn't have any problems with it being dry or crumbly, I believe this is because I used all natural PB. I had to stir the oil back into the peanut butter when I opened the jar, of course, and I think this made for a better cookie. I used old fashion rolled oats and I can see that quick cooking is best...but it didn't ruin the cookies by having the old fashion oats, it's just the oats are more noticeable. They are fast and quick to put together. I rolled little balls and flattened with my fingers. I cooked mine for a good 10 min. maybe a little longer, can't remember. I didn't want them to be too soft and falling apart. Will make again!
