Mix Together:

One container of sour cream and cottage cheese (white sauce) and put a thin layer on the bottom of a 9x13” pan.

Then layer:

Cooked noodles (I buy oven ready)

White sauce

Red sauce (Spaghetti sauce and meat)-( I use Hunt's Zesty and Spicy canned spaghetti sauce but any sauce you buy should be good)


Cheddar Cheese and Mozzarella cheese

I get about 3-4 layers of this in my 9x13 inch pan. Cook at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Really yummy. Serve with garlic bread and a garden salad.

1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup sugar

3 cups sliced fresh fruit, such as strawberries, kiwis, bananas, peaches, or blueberries

Preheat oven to 350°. For crust, shape cookie dough into a ball. Place dough in center of 13" round baking stone; flatten slightly with palm of hand. Using lightly floured fingertips, press dough into a 12-inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Bake 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown. Carefully loosen cookie from baking stone with knife. Cool completely.For toppings, combine cream cheese and sugar in a bowl; mix well. Spread mixture evenly over top of cookie. Slice fruit using the egg slicer; arrange over cream cheese mixture. Chill. Cut into wedges or squares with Pizza Cutter. Serve.

Mint Chicken Salad

Lemon-Chive Dressing:

2 T freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 t fine sea salt

1 c light cream or half-and-half

1/3 c chopped fresh chives


1 c shelled peas, blanched and refreshed

3 small spring onions, cut into thin rounds

3 oz greek feta cheese, crumbled

1/4 c mint leaves, cut into a chiffonade

3 c shredded chicken or turkey

8 oz cherry tomatoes

1 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced

2 baby Romaine heads, thickly shredded

4 radishes, halved and thinly sliced

1/4 c chopped chives

*I added nuts on top- I used almond slivers cooked with a little sugar and butter.

To make the dressing, combine the lemon juice and salt in a small jar. Shake to dissolve the salt. Add the cream and chives. Shake to blend. Taste for seasoning. In a large, shallow bowl, combine all the salad ingredients. Toss with just enough dressing to evenly coat the ingredients. Arrangeo on four large dinner plates. Serve four.
