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!
"I love this recipe. It is so easy. My husband loves a thin crust, and I have tried a lot of different recipes. They were good, but this is the best. It even made a good thick crust for my picky teenagers, I did not bother to roll the dough for them, I just used my hands to flatten it down. I could not find the jar of honey, so I used agave syrup!
Ina...thank you so much for this recipe.
"Ms. Paula...this is great! I made these for my daughter's rainbow meeting last month, and they loved them so much they asked for them again last week. My sister-in-law hates pumpkin, but when she tasted it, she loved it, she could not believe it had pumpkin in it!! My father-in-law is my toughest critic, and I won him over!! Thanks Paula
"The best apple pie I've had, and in my daughter's lingo "TDF" that is To Die For! When I first came across it, and read that you've got to cook the apples, I thought that it was odd. But then I remembered that I have an old recipe for an apple tart, that requires cooking the apples. My picky teenagers loves this! It is so worth the extra time and effort...I will no longer use flour in my apples to thicken them. I used honey crisp, they taste better than red or golden delicious. And I love their texture in cooking.
Well... I'll be making this for my son's birthday in two weeks, along with Ina's chocolate cake!
"My husband is in love with these cupcakes! He is not a fan of a sweet frosting, so this was just perfect. He said "honey I am sorry, but I might finish these before the family gets here! I love it, the frosting is so rich... I know mom is going to love them, too!" It doesn't get better than this.
When I saw the show, Ina used the whole jar of frosting, the recipe says use 11 0z. The only one I found at the store was 16 oz. So I watched the video and decided to go ahead and use the 16 oz. jar. I am happy with them.
