Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
This is a good basic recipe. However, I built off of this and I have added rotisserie chicken or chicken sautéed with the garlic and a touch of olive oil. I used a touch more garlic and heavy cream-which can be split with half and half to reduce the calories. I also added sautéed portabella mushrooms and fresh thyme.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I used a 3.50 lb pork roast, I was a little worried about all the fat on the meat but it fell right off the roast. I cooked this pork on low for 8 hours and the meat turned out perfectly. Shredding the meat was easy and the end result was delicious.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
This was an easy and delicious dish. Although next time I would use fresh spinach and sauté it first, as I was not a huge fan on the canned spinach. I made a few modifications, I used fresh herbs in replace of Italian seasoning and I omitted the bacon.

Tasty Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
This was a great recipe, although I adjusted it a little. Instead of just using ground beef, I used half ground beef and half ground pork. Instead of dried thyme I used fresh and also added fresh oregano and did not crush the bay leaf but instead removed it before serving. Lastly, when I was browning the meat, I deglazed the pan with some red wine. Delicious!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
This was my first attempt at risotto and I thought it turned out amazing! I cut the amount of mushrooms in half, for preference reasons, but there were still plenty of mushrooms in the dish. Once I started cooking the rice, I realized that I did not have white wine or enough chicken stock in the pantry, so I improvised with water. The risotto still have plenty of flavor and then I didn't have to worry about it being to salty. I cooked it a little longer than the 15-20 minutes, added just a touch more water than the 6 cups and added about a 1/2 cup of cheese total. Delicious!

Strawberry Dream Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
So easy to make, but a little time consuming, however, definitely worth it! I thought this cake was delicious and extremely moist. I used the suggestion from another reviewer and used strawberry cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese, which I think rounded out the strawberry flavor. I was a little leery about the doneness of the cake, since the cake wasn't completely firm and the toothpick wasn't clean-but as someone previously mentioned, that is the way it is suppose to be. The frosting was easy and instead of cream cheese I used mascarpone cheese, it tasted delicious! I received great reviews!

Chicken Riggies II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
This was an easy, inexpensive dish. The flavor was very subtle. I used less than a pint of cream and next time I would use even less.
