Recipes from Cook’s Country

I got a free copy of Cook’s Country and decided to try a couple of recipes. I had seen the Skillet Lasagna recipe before and finally gave it a try. Its a thirty minute recipe and the folks ate it up. It is a good warm meal for a week night and a nice change of pace. I was not able to find the meat loaf mix they recommended so I substituted 1/2 pound of ground sirloin(10% fat) with the meat from two Italian sausages.
The triple chocolate cookies were a splurge. Two bags of chocolate chips is a lot of chocolate. The goods news is that the cookies were good but not addictive. Since they were so chocolately it was more likely we would eat just one or two rather than a whole bunch. It took us almost a week to go through the batch.
