baked ziti is the best

This is a great sunday night dinner. You'll have to take my word, this makes your home smell really good. Plus, leftovers for lunch on Monday are a bonus.

ricotta, mozzarella, chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, a little milk, tomato sauce, garlic powder, oregano, s&p.

Mixed up with the ziti, poured in a pan, topped with more sauce, mozzarella, and the secret ingredient: some provolone.

Baked covered for 20 minutes at 375' then uncovered for 5-10 minutes at 400'

(not pictured- parmesan garlic bread and veggies)

i like my mangos...


1 mango
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 banana
4 ice cubes
1 blender

If I'm going to bust on Matt, the least I can do is put something up too. I tried my hand at my mom's Triple Chocolate Cookies a couple of weeks ago. Maybe four dozen cookies came out of a pound of semisweet baking chocolate, a cup of Dutch process cocoa, and a 12oz bag of milk/white chocolate chips. The trick is to not leave them in the oven too long; between the eggs and the butter/crisco mixture, they'll be done just about as soon as they raise to maximum height... anything further just makes them tough and a bit burnt.
