Excellent Venison Soup
For us anyways, the following changes brought this soup up to 5 stars: Instead of water and bouillon, use 7-8 cups of beef stock (not broth). I also used 3 parsnips and one carrot, not the other way around. One lb. of venison ground together with one lb. Italian turkey sausage was the way to go. Just brown them both in a little olive oil. I also added a whole quart of home-canned tomatoes. With the additional stock used, double the spices. This soup turned out to be a big hit.

World's Best Lasagna
Stuck pretty close to the recipe, but added a little more garlic. Sauce was very good for lasagna, and overall the dish turned out very well.

Baked Chicken
Very good. I used mayo instead of sour creme and I left out the soup mix. I also added thyme, rosemary and a little sage as well.
