From the Silver Palate Cookbook, this is one of those recipes that I've made a lot.  It tastes great and is a huge crowd pleaser.  Loads of sugar and carbs, but...

Bolognese Lasagne (aka Baked Green Lasagna with Meat Sauce) Bolognese Lasagne (aka Baked Green Lasagna with Meat Sauce)

Marcella Hazan's classic lasagne, updated with my prep notes.  You'll need the recipes for Meat Sauce Bolognese Style and Bechamel also.

Lemon Bars Lemon Bars

Sue obtained this recipe from our next-door neighbor at the time, Laverne Doering, in 1976--the year Jennifer was born.  These lemon bars are a favorite of virtually everyone who eats them..

Classic Bolognese lasagne from Marcella Hazan; it's the best lasagne possible but you must use her Béchamel Sauce and her Meat Sauce, Bolognese Style when you make it.

Meat Sauce, Bolognese Style Meat Sauce, Bolognese Style

Marcella Hazan's ragú, it's the best recipe out there and must be used in her Baked Green Lasagne, Bolognese Style.  It's also wonderful with other pastas, especially papperdelle and penne.

Classic Split Pea Soup Classic Split Pea Soup

Easy to make (but takes some time) version split pea soup that has great flavor and a little texture from the vegetables. Try adding other stuff; I added a couple of leeks we had left over the last time I made it. Chopped them in 1/2" dice like everything else.

Basil Breakfast Strata Basil Breakfast Strata

A marvelous strata from the Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook that makes a great brunch
