RZ Buttery Bread Machine Rolls: Really really good! Followed the recipe, but cooked at 350 until golden.
Pastitsio: Followed Mom’s book recipe, sort of. Pasta – 1 1/2 lbs penne, 3 eggs, 10 oz parmesan (but save some for on top!), 1/2 stick of butter. Meat sauce – some butter, one onion, 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, LOTS of salt, pepper, half of tomato paste can, most of tomato sauce can, white wine. I probably used a TINY bit too much wine because I added a little bit more after the meat sauce had been simmering for a while. Next time, use a tiny bit more than half of the little bottle while meat is cooking and don’t add anymore after the simmer. Cream sauce – 1/2 stick of butter, 5 tbsp cornstarch, 4 cups warm milk, salt, and 2 eggs (off the heat). AMAZING! Baked at 350 for 40ish minutes.
Potatoes: Followed mashed potato casserole recipe. 3 oz softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, pepper, 2 1/2 to 3 lbs potatoes, add 1 head roasted garlic (400 for 50 ish minutes), salt instead of garlic salt, shredded cheddar on top, buttered casserole dish, 25 minutes at 400, up to 50 if refrigerated. Best garlic mashed potatoes ever! Would have added paprika but we didn’t have any.
Marble cake: Followed Baking Bites recipe, no more than 1 cup of white batter into the chocolate.
Chocolate Fudge Frosting: Made as directed, but ended up with crumbly fudge! Before adding the powdered sugar! Fixed it by heating it again over the stove with probably another 1/2 cup of milk and only adding about a cup of powdered sugar. Turned out perfect, but I was scared for a while. Maybe I boiled it too long? Who cares, it ended up being awesome!
