    My yearbook class is having a Christmas potluck on Friday and I have no idea what to bring. There’s around 20 kids in the class. Most people are bringing cookies or some type of dessert, so I wanted to bring REAL food. Fruit, drinks, chips, and meatballs are already taken.

    Help, please!

    i found a recipe that called for pureed apricots as a paste for one layer of the lasagna. it was off the internet that i found the recipe at some cooking site. i don’t know that real name of it or where i found it before but it was sooooo good. and i can’t seem to find it anywhere again.
    this lasagna was sweet tasting and did not have a sauce that i remember. only the apricot puree mixture and the cheese and noodles

    I am hosting Easter dinner for 30 people. I would like to serve something other than Turkey. I want something simple that most people like. I will make the main course and the rest of the family will bring the sides and desserts. Any suggestions?
