Alfredo Sauce
Used all parmesan, added lots of garlic and pepper, and doubled the recipe but only used one egg yolk. Turned out perfect! Will try using cheddar & jack cheeses instead of parmesan for a sinful mac & cheese. Some tips if your sauce is runny or grainy: 1. After adding the cream and spices to the melted butter, slowly heat the mixture until it starts to bubble. 2. Whisk it until it thickens slightly. You will start to see lines on the bottom of the pan where the whisk has been. 3. If you are using the egg yolk, stream it in while whisking vigorously now. Turn off the heat. 4. Gradually add the cheese while whisking. If your sauce is lumpy from partially melted cheese, turn the burner back on VERY LOW. Using a low temperature to melt cheese results in a gooey texture instead of a grainy one. 5. Enjoy!

Super Al's Cocktail Sauce
I added worsteshire, onion powder, and hot sauce and it was really good but a bit sweet for me. Next time I'll try reducing the amount of brown sugar or using crushed tomatoes instead of ketchup.

Southwest Dipping Sauce
I added more cayenne because I like it spicy and a little sweet relish and used prepared horseradish instead of the cream horseradish sauce. I used it on burgers; it was like a more flavorful version of the special sauce at a popular fast food chain. I am going to try making it with sour cream and maybe a little cream cheese instead of mayo and using it for chip dip, sans relish.
