"This is another easy, versatile recipe that I use often. I call for canned beans in my recipes, but I like the taste of home cooked beans. If you have a crock pot, there is no reason why you can't have home cooked beans too."

My fiance and I love this biscotti...the cranberries add great sweetness and the pistachios some good crunch.

This recipe is from a cookbook, language and terms are borrowed from the literature.
I borrowed this recipe in an effort to use left over ricotta and provide a yummy breakfast on the weekend. Boy-oh-boy...these are yummy!

Slightly modified version- minus 1/3 butter and 1/4 c sugar. Would NOT recommend substituting part-skim ricotta for whole milk, as the extra liquid will result in cake not baking correctly and overflowing loaf pan, resulting in a not very pretty loaf.

Alton Brown's recipe for stove top mac and cheese. It's the creamiest smoothest mac and cheese you'll ever taste. Paired with a leafy green vegetables makes a great dinner or as a side dish in smaller half portions, this is sure to please!
