    Kyles Fantastic Baked Chicken (compliments of my wonderful bf)

    6 chicken thighs (3 breasts)
    Butter (1/2 stick)
    Milk (1 cup- maybe more depends on your personal taste)
    Parmesan Cheese
    Swiss Cheese
    Bread Crumbs

    First: melt the butter in a pan, put the chicken in to brown...(doesnt need to be cooked all the way through, your going to bake)
    Second: Make the rice
    Third: prep the pan to bake in...layer the bottom with parmesan cheese and swiss cheese...cover with the rice...then the browned chicken...
    Do not throw away the butter sauce...now put in flour and whisk...once it is too your liking of thickness add milk to lighten it up...WHISK WHISK WHISK and make sure its boiling...otherwise it will taste like flour... then pour that onto the chicken ( make sure its completely covering the pan ) now take breadcrumbs and sprinkle as many as you like on top...to add a little extra crispyness melt some more butter and drip onto of the breadcrumbs so when it cooks it will make a crispy shell...

    Pre heat oven to 350 and cook for 35 mins...if the chicken was previously frozen add an extra 15 mins to be safe...

    Serves 4-6 depending on your choice of chicken...you dont have to use just thighs or breasts any part is good.

    I have to try that chocolate brownie slice!! It sounds absolutely delicious. I am a great fan of chocolate brownies.
    They are so bad for you, but also sooo tasty :)
  12. I like the one for carrot cake. That's my fave of all time. Usually I get carrot cake once a year for my birthday even if just the one slice cause no one else in the house likes it.

    Ultimate Lasagna

    2 pound dried lasagna noodles
    Extra-virgin olive oil
    2 pounds ground beef
    2 pound ground Italian sausage
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, sliced
    3 carrots, chopped
    2 stalks celery, chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
    1/4 cup finely chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
    1 tablespoon chopped oregano leaves
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups red wine
    2 (28-oze) cans tomatoes (recommended: San Marzano)
    3 tablespoons heavy cream
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 quarts ricotta cheese, (2 containers)
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
    Grated Parmesan and mozzarella, for topping

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook the lasagna noodles in plenty of boiling salted water until pliable and barely tender, about 10 minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking. Drain the noodles thoroughly and coat with olive oil to keep them moist and easy to work with.
    Coat a large skillet with olive oil, add beef and sausage and brown until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. In a food processor, combine the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, basil, parsley, an oregano. Process until pureed, add to the pan with the ground meat and stir to combine. Stir in the flour. Add the wine and cook until it has reduced by half. Stir in the tomatoes and add the heavy cream and the cinnamon.
    In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta and the parmesan. Stir in the eggs and season with salt and pepper.
    To assemble the lasagna: Coat the bottom of a deep 13 by 9-inch pan with olive oil. Arrange 4 noodles lengthwise in a slightly overlapping layer on the sauce. Then, line each end of the pan with a lasagna noodle. This forms a collar that holds in the corners. Dollop 1/2 of the ricotta mixture over the pasta, spread to the edges with a spatula. Spread 1/2 of the meat mixture over the ricotta. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella on top of the ricotta. Top with a ladle full of sauce, spread evenly. Repeat with the next layer of noodles, ricotta, sauce, and cheeses. Top last layer with noodles, sauce, shredded mozzarella and Parmesan. Tap the pan to force out air bubbles. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven. Let lasagna rest for 30 minutes so the noodles will settle and cut easily. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve.
