Grilled Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce Over Linguine

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
I made this today for lunch. I couldn't find the right sausage, so I used Roasted Pepper & Asiago with Mesquite Smoke sausage. I couldn't find diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, so I had to use Rotel which has green chilies in it. The sauce was too thin for my liking, so I added 1/4 cup cold water mixed with 1 Tb. cornstarch right at the last & just heated until sauce thickened. I also used cooking sherry instead of wine. This was amazing! My husband doesn't like new dishes & he is usually meat & potatoes. I had a chicken breast & a whole other meal ready to cook him. He tasted this & said, "I think that's a meal in itself." I said it was supposed to be but I thought you wouldn't eat it. Did I mention he doesn't like anything with heat in it, like Rotel or he doesn't like noodles? He loved this & told me to put the chicken up, he was eating this. This will be a favorite of ours now. Thanks Al Fresco!

Easy Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
I added more chicken seasoning & California style garlic salt with parsley. It came out really good but too runny. next time, I will double the amount of flour. I also used 24 oz. of veggies for the deep dish. I brushed the top crust with egg wash for a darker, crispier crust. Used deep dish, dark purple pie plate so the crust came out perfectly browned all the way around. Used middle shelf in oven. Took me 40 minutes.

Easy Weeknight Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
We really liked this recipe & will use it again. I did tweak it though. After all, it is just a starter, not a finisher. LOL! I first off used only 3/4# of venison loins. While cooking them, I added about 1/4 tsp. California style garlic salt with parsley. I had button mushrooms in the fridge to use up, so I added about 6 of those, sliced, while sauteing the onions. Waited until right towards the end to add the garlic clove, so as not to burn & get bitter. When this was done, I tasted it & it still needed a little more of the California style garlic salt with parsley, so I added about 1/4 tsp. more. I also added about 1/2 tsp. coarse ground black pepper. I cooked my noodles in water with chicken bouillon in it for added flavor & then drained them & tossed them with about 2 Tbsp. butter. My husband doesn't like noodles, but he loved this!

Pizza Alfredo with Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I made this today & here are the changes I made. I made my own crust & Alfredo sauce. I used button mushrooms instead of Crimini. We don't like them. It never said to split the meat balls before adding to pizza, but I did. I did use the basil as directed, but would have rather used fresh spinach leaves. We loved the meatballs on this & the veggies, but thought it needed just a little more flavor to the base of it. Maybe some Italian seasoning or something.

Cornbread Stuffing with al fresco® Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
The sausage should have been browned first & removed from the pan & then the onions & celery sauteed & then the apples thrown in with the remainder of ingredients. My apples just turned to mush. I think it needs at least twice the amount of liquid. It was dry & I added more liquid beforehand. I also just poured all the pan stuff over the cornbread in the casserole dish, to keep it from becoming just mush. I then lightly tossed it to mix. This way it still had some texture.

Grandma's Creamy Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
I found this to be very good but colorless, & really needs something like carrots in it for texture & some color. Other wise, it's kinda plain. If you are the kind of person that likes plain, then you would like it as is. I also usually add butter with my potato chips on top to brown them. I left these in an extra 15 minutes, & they still weren't browned good.I think next time I make this, I will add cooked carrots, & not precook the noodles, so they still have some texture.

Lubed-Up Hot Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I found these to be very good. The texture & flavor of the wing after deep-frying were spot on. I wasn't quite sure what was meant on the cereal & brown sugar thing, so I just used Cap'n Crunch. The sauce: I tasted it after mixing & was a little sweet , so I added more hot sauce to balance it out (just my preference). I also baked once as directed & then poured more sauce on them & baked again for 10 more minutes. These are quite messy, so you will need a wet finger towel at the table. You also need more oil for frying them.

Hot Maryland Crab Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This is a very good spread for entertaining. Worried about it getting cold before guests can eat them? Don't! They taste even better at room temperature.

Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I make lots of kabobs, so thought I would try these today. For the most part, I liked them. I don't parboil my bell peppers though. I like them tender-crisp. I slow cook them so the veggies get done right with the meat. Very good flavored marinade! Thank you!

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I made this today, & while it wasn't exactly how I usually make blackberry pie, it came out beautifully. I added about another half cup of sugar. I know blackberries take a lot of sugar. Think it could have stood more. I posted 2 pictures also. Thanks you!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This recipe was good, but for me, not great. I didn't need the water in the sauce mix. It was thin enough. I like more of a white cheese sauce with my chicken enchiladas, so this was too much red sauce for my liking. But, overall, it was a good recipe. Thank you!
