Since I can bake these, I
know you can do it because I’m the worst baker in the WORLD. I burn water.
Seriously, look at my facebook wall…I posted a pic the last time I burned
3. Taco Lasagna
First you fry up some
ground beef, chicken, or whatever meat you’re taco-ing. Then you follow the
instructions on the taco packet (add some water and the packet and cook it
down, you know the drill.) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Once you have the meat, you can start layering. Put down some soft taco shells
in a lasagna pan. (They have some fancy name for it, but me? I call it a
lasagna pan, even though mine is glass.) Then you layer meat, cheese, lettuce, sour
cream, more shells, maybe some onions, more meat, some taco sauce…whatever
stuff you’d put on your taco. Add a final layer of taco shells and cover the
whole mess with cheese. Bake until the cheese melts and serve up like lasagna. 

2. Mom’s Mac and Cheese
Boil noodles until they
are done. When they are, drain them and then add a stick of butter and some
velveeta chunks until melted…then splash in some water and sprinkle on some
pepper. Comfort food? Done.
1 Alfredo Sauce
Get a big pan (I use the
skillet my mama gave me) and melt a stick of butter and throw in some garlic (I
like the chunky kind in oil, but you can use powder in a pinch.) Once it is
melted, throw in a block of Philadelphia cream cheese. Stir, fast…until the
cream cheese is combined and you have what looks like a giant white booger in
the pan. Add shredded parmesan cheese and some milk until it takes on a creamy
texture. Salt and pepper to taste.
