Re: "Oven Ready" Lasagna Noodles?

You don't need to use "oven ready" lasagna noodles to make the recipe that way. You can use good ol' every day lasagna noodles. I never boil my noodles first. I always just assemble it all (with plenty of sauce) and cook it. It comes out fine. I am not satisfied with fine, I am satisfied with spect...

Re: Graham pecan chews

Oh, yeah, I am sure brown sugar would be fine.... the melting of the sugar and the butter makes a caramel... brown sugar would give it a greater depth of caramel flavor. I think that's a great call! I would use real butter. No margarine for me. No worries, margarine isn't even allowed in my refrige...

Dave, the egg whites leave your custard less creamy. I cannot find anywhere the need for the egg whites in custard. Instead of 4 eggs try using 6 egg yolks and make an egg while omelet with the whites. :) Let me know if you give it a try. I don't see any mention of egg whites anywhere on this threa...
