“Excellent and easy recipe, and what is better is that my picky teenagers loved it.
Thank you... ”
I could not find the manicotti in the pantry, I made rolled lasagna instead. My directions said to cook noodles between 11-14 min, I cooked them for 13 min. I spread the filling on each noodle (almost entire length and rolled it. I added oregano and some basil to the sauce and filling. This reminds me of an old recipe I came across 17 y"
"My Children LOVED this soup!I had to change the recipe a bit. My 17 year old hates cannellini beans, so I threw them in the food processor until they were creamy. I added them to the veggies and ofcourse the marinara sauce, and since I could not find the pastina I used the alphabets instead. Because the soup's texture was thick, I had to extend th"
"They were really easy and good. I have made these several times. The first time I used the cake mix, and as the recipe said, they came out "gooey". But after reading the reviews, I decided to try the brownie mix! My husband and I favor the brownie mix more, they came out "chewey". The kids on the other hand like the "gooey"!! I did not change anything at all in the recipe. The only reason they took longer than 15 min per batch in the oven is because I made them super large! Last night I made them again for my daughter's meeting this morning. I chose to do bite sized cookes (using 2 teaspoons to drop them into the confections sugar). These baked for 12 minutes, and made 72 cookies. Everyone loved them and asked for the "secret" recipe!! One of the ladies said "a Paula Deen recipe and it only took ONE stick of butter?!" LOL...I reminded her that it had 8-ounces of cream cheese in it too. Thank You Paula :-).
"They were really easy and good. I have made them twice, once last week using the cake mix, they came out "gooey", but yesterday I decided to make them using the brownie mix! My husband and I favor the brownie mix more, they came out "chewey". The kids on the other hand like the "gooey"!! I did not change anything at all in the recipe. I made the mix at night and forgot them in the fridge over night (opps!). The only thing I had to watch was the baking time, I believe it took a few min. more per batch. They are really good.
""Chocolatey" is what my son said, when I made him this cake for his birthday, he loves Beatty's recipe more. I love Ina's recipes. This one is very rich, and not as sweet as I expected. I used an 11x14 pan (about 32 minutes baking time), and cut the cake in half and used some of the frosting inside. I had tried something very similar to this at a bakery, the only difference is that the baker had used cherry pie filling in the center. That will be something I will try next time...hmmm maybe some liquer while I am at it!
