Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I made this at Christmas. We are diabetic so I used the diet gingerale, Welch's white grape juice is unsweetened and so was the pineapple juice. Instead of doing the ring, I added a package of Europe's Best frozen berries (blackberries, raspberries, etc.). I even froze some grapes and dumped them in periodically. I mixed it all and put some in a ZipLock storage container and froze it then added it to the punch bowl to keep it cold. I ended up freezing about half of the punch in a few ZipLock storage containers and this made it even better. The colour of the assorted berries went into the punch. Everyone absolutely loved this, especially as the colour deepened as the colour & flavours of the berries set into it. I will definately make this again. You can make this ahead of time and take it frozen or partialy defrosted if you're taking it to another location.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
OMG ... this is absolutely fantastic! Thank you ever so much for this recipe. It's too bad I can only give it a 5 star rating, it deserves at least a 10. The Alfredo Sauce is all made, it's sitting in the pot (what's left of it). LOL It's not quite 5:30 p.m. and I have to wait until 6:00 p.m. before I can put on the Gnocchi (potato dumplings) that I'm going to pour this over. I only made a half a batch as it's only the two of us and I'm serving the gnocci with Alfrdo sauce along with a ham steak. I doubled the garlic (the fresh diced garlic in the jar).I grated fresh parmesan but as I was tasting it I grated extra and threw it in. Then I added some more (this time it was Tre Stella in the jar because I had used up all my fresh parmesan). I doubled the pepper and used white pepper instead of black. I sure hope the gnocchi doesn't ruin the taste of this excellent sauce. LOL

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
These were great! I made a few modifications and used some suggestions from others. For example: I used 4 large bananas, mashed I used Splenda instead of sugar (about 1/4 cup as we don't like sweet things but they were just the right sweetness) I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla Instead of the butter I used a mixture of unsweetened applesauce (lunch box size) and mayo (an old trick a farmer's wife taught me, I do this with cakes too). I added chopped pecans and golden raisins. Oh drool ... these were sooooo moist and tender, not at all oily, probably because of the Hellmann's Mayo & applesauce. I also sprinkled pecan pieces on top of the muffins before baking. They were gone before I could make the cream cheese icing. Oh well, next time I'll make the cream cheese icing ... I do intend to make this recipe again, thanks for sharing.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
I made this recipe for my daughter and she loved it so much that it has become a staple in her house. She makes it at least once a week. I use 4 to 6 very large chicken thighs (skinless & boneless, simmered them in 1 waxed carton of chicken broth. I cut up carrots, celery & onion and a touch of garlic, then sprinked in pepper. When the carrots were almost done I added a can of cream of celery and cream of chicken soup and stirred it well to blend. Then I added the refrigerator biscuits. I tore them in half but my daughter simply put them on whole without tearing them into pieces. Then I put a lid on it and simmered it for at least a half hour. It was sooooooooooo good. Simple & easy. A winning recipe, thank you for sharing. We have this dish often because it's tasty and quick and easy.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
I took a chance and doubled this recipe. It was awesome! This is what I did different: I did not add the salt. I kept the rice in the same pot. I added cinnamon in with the beaten eggs & milk. I ran out of milk so instead of adding the extra 1/2 cup of milk (1 cup for me as I doubled the recipe) I used 1 cup of heavy (whipping) cream. I also threw in a few drops of butter flavoring even though I added the butter. I didn't have the golden raisins so I used the regular dark ones. This was so creamy any yummy! My DH loved it, he had been pining for rice pudding. We had 2 small bowls ... wait make that 2 small bowls each (LOL) before dinner and the rest of it is in the fridge cooling now. I don't know how thick it will be when it cools ... if it is too thick, I'll just add a touch of 1/2 and 1/2 to it. Thank you Erica for this great recipe. I'd definately make this one again.
