Eggless Eggnog
I made this with actual rum instead of the rum-flavored extract--it was pretty good. I used 1/2 cup of Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. With the other ingredients, it tasted a little bland, so I added some extra nutmeg and also about 1/2 tsp. of ground cloves and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract. With the extra spices, it tasted more like eggnog, in my opinion. Maybe my problem was not using the extract, but, no matter--with the real rum & extra spices, it was delicious. I put this in an empty milk jug, which worked out well for storing and pouring at a Christmas gathering. Not glamorous, but incredibly functional.

Tammy's Philly Cheese Steak Dip
Made as directed, this is not very good. It is oily (mayo & Italian dressing) and gooey (provolone cheese). So gooey that it is impossible to dip. I tried making this again with modifications, and it was much better. Substituted mozzarella for the provolone, sour cream for the mayo, and Montreal Steak seasoning (2T) for the dressing. For the meat, I found John Soules Foods Angus Beef Steak strips in the freezer section at Walmart. I chopped the steak strips and cooked them in a skillet with the green pepper and onion for 5 minutes before adding the mixture to the rest of the ingredients in a crock pot. This was delicious. I will make this dip again with modifications. I really wanted to like the original recipe, but it just wasn't very good.

The first time I made this I followed the instructions exactly. I really did not care for it. If you are serving this as a main dish, then maybe this could be 8 servings. If you are serving it as a side dish, it is more like 16 servings. Also, the ratio of pasta to other ingredients is off, in my opinion. The first time I ate this, the pasta was overwhelming. I could hardly taste any of the other ingredients, and I did not care for the Italian dressing. Maybe I needed to use better Italian dressing?? (I used Kraft's Italian dressing.) The second time I made this, I doubled the tomato and cucumber, added some kalmata olives, and used the Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing (approx 1 1/2 cups) from this site instead of bottled Italian dressing. I served this chilled as a side dish at a cook-out. I enjoyed it much more the second time with these adjustments. I would give this 5 stars with changes; however, rating the recipe as submitted, I can only give 3 stars.
