Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
This made a very good, creamy sauce. I added some extra spices: lemon pepper, nutmeg, and italian seasoning. Didn't quite need all the milk... had about 1/2 cup left over. Served over bucatini and broccoli. Yum! Thanks.

Mom's Apple Fritters
I made a half recipe- which produced about 12 fritters, slightly bigger than a golf ball. The family enjoyed them. Thanks!

Fried Cauliflower (Egyptian Style)
I microwaved fresh florets for three minutes with a little water and some cumin. Mixed the batter by hand, adding extra milk to make a thick pancake-batter consistency. I added some cayenne, Mrs. Dash's lemon-garlic seasoning, and garlic powder. Deep fried florets for two minutes at 350, drained on paper towels and salted. Served with ranch dip. Delicious! You won my son over to eating cauliflower!
