Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette
Perfect! I initially made a half batch but still used a full clove of garlic/crushed and that was a wee bit too garlicky (still good though ) I had gone out and purchased a little bit better balsamic vinegar and maybe that's why it is so yummy?? BTW. I used Colavita Organic-was about $5 so not terribly pricey, no caramel coloring just wine vinegar and concentrated grape must. I am now making a full batch-goes great on a salad with blue cheese, apples, Craisins, and walnuts. Thanks a lot for the recipe-my new favorite!

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties
I love this recipe-but it's better as other Reviewers have mentioned, when you double all the ingredients (although i omitted the cayenne completely since i was using freshly ground pepper) and since I was using freshly ground pepper, I therefore used 3/4 of a Tsp( times 3) i did not reduce the salt-i doubled this as well-I also added the 1 Tbs of Maple that another Reviewer mentioned but I may try and increase this next time. One time I made these sausages the texture was really off-kind of rubbery. Then I realized you have to use the ground turkey that is NOT ultra lean, you want the one that has 8g fat per 4oz! I didn't find this recipe to be 'dry' as others mentioned. I thought (my family) thought these were the best tasting sausages and they are definitely not greasy like pork can be so it may be easier to overlook them and become dry. Covering the pan with a lid helps keeps some moisture and kind of "steams" them as they cook. I'm mixing up a batch right now so I'm ready to go Xmas morning. I love Whole Foods fresh pork breakfast sausage-this recipe is just as good, easy, and cheaper! Thanks!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
Just took a bite...oh my gosh! Moist and so flavorful-and I didn't make the frosting yet! I did use pecans since that was all I had-and it was great! I ended up using store bought "shredded carrots" and then pulsed them to wee little bits in the food processor-this worked out great! Omitted the raisins, but the sweetness is still there so no worries. Decided to add some freshly grated nutmeg as well. thx for my new "go-to Carrot Cake recipe"! We have finished the first cake.."need" to make another now. I used the cream cheese frosting recipe that another reviewer suggested which has a bit of almond extract in it. Absolutely no need to try another recipe once you have tried this one. I think the phenomenal texture could be because I pulsed the pineapple and as mentioned above, the carrots. No child will ever know there are vegetables hiding...
