Alfredo Sauce
Can I just! Followed recipe exactly (except when I read one clove of garlic...i use 4...always)...except I was looking for spinach prior to making the sauce as described, I heated olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper then sauteed spinach in that mixture..set aside. Then, in same pan followed recipe to the letter..added my spinach as the last alfredo I have ever had..ty so much for sharing. After reading some of the reviews...especially those that said this was bland...I feel like I must note that Alfredo is a cheese sauce...and is definitely dependent on the cheese one chooses to use..I would imagine the original poster, as I, used a good cheese as a base which is why there was no need for "extras" to make it taste good. :)

World's Best Lasagna
Normally I am not even a huge Lasagna fan..I come from a long line of Italian cooks and I have my favorites...Lasagna has never been on of them..but this recipe with a tweak or two is oh so good..My family raved and it actually made me sad when I finished the last of the leftovers :)For the record...2 cloves of garlic must be a typo...I think I used two bulbs. halve the sugar and the salt...use fresh basil instead of dried and quintuple the amount....triple the fresh sure to use the flat leaf variety..and now we are talking ...and do NOT..let me NOT omit the fennel..that gives it the quintessential Lasagna flavor. Over all, I want to thank Johnchandler for sharing...he has made a Lasagna lover and maker out of me :)

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting
When I read the recipe for this frosting I was excited to make it...then I read the reviews and was a little worried but decided to go ahead and follow the recipe to the letter. I mean its frosting..if it doesn't turn out, toss it and start over, right? If followed exactly this is the best frosting ever! It is not runny by any stretch of the imagination, in fact while I was folding the cream cheese mixture and the wipped cream together it stopped my mixer several times and I had to help it along by hand. The only thing I can figure out is that those that have said so did not whip their cream long enough. Try it; I don't think you will be disappointed.
