Oh yeah, good example. The Pig Jello. One of her specialties.





The way it jiggles on the plate it is more like an Unsuccessful Abortion.

Oh man, they are coming in March.

The horror...The horror....the horror.

Man I love this stuff! Just....not the way she makes it.  :P
You can use any hunk of meat so long as it's bone in. And then you need a TON of garlic and some fresh bread.
It's like anything else, done wrong it causes nightmares.

The moral majority, is neither.

I cooked a batch of lasagna for my BIL in France while his wife watched and took notes.  The next year we were talking about it and she said it didn't turn out as good when she made it, it was way to crunchy.  Turns out she forgot to write down: Boil the noodles before using.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I thought you could put them in dry if there was enough liquid in the pan?

Of course, my lasagnas have always been the frozen kind...

It is possible to make lasagna without boiling but it takes more sauce and time.

Yep, I always made it without boiling the noodles. Pretty simple, more sauce...

My sister in law made us cabbage rolls one time.  She browned 1 lb of ground beef (she might have put some onion in there too), used fresh green cabbage for the rolls, put them in a caserole dish and dumped a single can of condensed tomato soup (barely covered 25% of the surface area). Threw it in the oven for about 1/2 an hour.

Mmm... uncooked cabbage with unseasoned ground beef and a bit of soup.

My mother in law has always said how she hates salmon.  We make salmon or steelhead trout once a week and love it.  We were over there one day and my father in law picked up a piece of salmon to make for supper because he knew we liked it.  I was watching football, so I don't know how my MIL prepared it, but I know it was baked in the oven for a long time.  I come upstairs for dinner, there is this awful smell, and my mother in law is complaining how bad the salmon smells.  I have never been a fussy eater, in my younger days, my friends called me "the human garbage can" because I would eat up anything.  But I could not eat more than a bite or two of that salmon, it had a greyish colour, a foul odour, and was dry as can be.  No one else even touched it.  No wonder my mother in law claims she hates salmon.

I like to either half boil them or just soak them in hot tap water for 15 minutes or so and then let them cook the rest of the way in the lasagna.  Just made one like that this past weekend.

I had a roommate years ago when living in Wildwood. He put beer on his cereal even if there was milk in the fridge. He claimed it was the cure for a hangover.

I put the raw rolled out dough in the lasagna without cooking it. It cooks in the sauce.

My B-in law is from Portugal, there they make pasta by cooking it in the sauce, they almost never boil it in the water.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

Dry pasta or raw, fresh pasta?  That would be a decent difference I'd think.
