Green Cabbage Caldo Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Cabbage is not the standard for this soup at all. It seems a good recipe, but the best substitute (what can easily be found in american grocery stores) is collard greens. Cut out the stems, rolls the leaves up tightly, finely shred them with a knife and add to the bowls, not the pot. The potatoes should be mostly mashed, not pureed and pasty looking. And when my Avo (grandma) cant get chourico or linguica sausage, she uses mild italian sausage. Its a bit strong but still good.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This is the basic template for Alfredo Sauce. While there are a million substitutes out there, the staples (butter, heavy cream, and parm cheese) should not be omitted. This is the kind of sauce that take multiple tries, not because it is difficult to make, but because we all like it different ways. I make my Alfredo thick and rich. I allow the cream to thicken before adding parmesan And romano cheese. Use fresh whenever available. The pre-grated kind will give you lumpy results most of the time. Also, season the finished sauce with salt and peper (white pepper, if you care about looks) to taste.
