Hash Brown Casserole

This is one of those recipes that you can really add in whatever you want. Next time, Bill wants me to add some crumbled bacon. However, my original recipe for this calls for chopped green pepper, chopped green onions, and chopped pimiento. I didn’t have any of those ingredients, so I made it with what I had, and it was excellent!

Ravioli Bake

This is an easy to make recipe.  However, it does need a couple of tweaks.  This was the first time for us to make this recipe, and I would definitely not add as much beef broth.  It was super good, but very soupy.  Besides that, this is an excellent recipe that I got from the Kraft Foods website.
