Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style
I hate store bought alfredo sauce. I decided to give it a try using 15 oz.Ragu garlic roasted parmesan alfredo sauce (entire jar) and used 1 8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I used 1 cup mozz and 1/2 cup Italian 6 blend, 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan. I didn't have garlic cloves so I used 1 tsp garlic powder instead. Sprinkled a little more parmesan and Italian blend cheese on top and baked it till lightly golden. Awesome!!! Did not taste like alfredo sauce with these modifications. Always tastes better the next day. My new go to recipe. It's for a potluck and I am saving some for home. Ha!

Quick Alfredo Sauce
I hate store bought alfredo sauce. I've made this several times (and tonight). My go to alfredo sauce recipe. I use fresh parmesan and grate it with a microplane zester. The cheese melts easily. I skip on the seasonings and add McKormick chicken seasoning instead. I'm addicted! Thanks!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin
I don't have steak seasoning so I subbed with Mc Cormick's Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning and rubbed it on the meat and then added the marinade and let it marry overnight till dinnertime. Tried it with pork tenderloin 2lbs. My 1st time making this. Results, amazing! 2nd time I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and grilled it. Great too! I did splash some more balsamic vinaigrette (Newman's Own Lite) near the end of grilling. I prefer the oven because it's more flavorful with pan juices for basting. 3rd time I used 4 1/2 lbs pork loin and used original marinade and let it marry for 48 hours. Oven roasted the pork loin with marinade and made a gravy with the juices. Got rave reviews on the gravy especially (from the marinade and not discarding it but cooking it with the pork) also the pork was so tender. Fussy eater said he wants the marinade recipe and my gravy that was from the marinade. Just added cornstarch, water and salt as needed for the gravy using the juices & whisk in till desired gravy consistency. Eyeball it. Highest compliments ever! Thank you.
