Healthier Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
I use a variation of this that I found on this site, and have for years and years. I use fat free cream cheese, and throw in a dollop of fat free sour cream, but I cut the butter to almost nil. Maybe two tablespoons. Fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, and sometimes the parmesan. Depending on the kind you use the combination of garlic and parmesan can be overpowering. We use it for many things and everyone loves it! Our favorite is to make tortellini, fry and slice italian sausage, steam some spinach and artichoke hearts, top it all with the sauce.

Bacon-and-Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
I have been making these for a while now. I lov that they are so versatile. Differences though: I put the bacon on a baker's rack on a cookie sheet and bake them at 400 for about ten minutes. Once cooled and blotted I line the muffin tins. We have topped the eggs with tomato, feta, cheddar, onion, pepperoncini, hashed browns, sausage... anything you can think of! The whole family loves them.

Artichoke Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
Made this last night, with a few adjustments. Added 4oz softened cream cheese to the mayo, and 1/4 cup milk. I also used boneless chicken thighs cut into chunks and omitted the mushrooms. Threw in some egg noodles and made it into a casserole. Wish I had used a little more garlic, but other than that, it was awesome! My family loved it too. Definitely going to make it again. Maybe add some spinach too next time.

Cream Cheese Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
So I used this recipe constantly, but it is my habit to make adjustments every time until I find a new twist that I like. This is a wonderful base to use when experimenting and testing your skill, and is also great when the recipe is followed. I make "my own" version of this sauce at least 4 times a month.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2014
Made these last minute (nine pm!) on Father's day. Aside from deflating a bit as they cooled, they were great. Creamy and flavorful. I added some vanilla and cinnamon to the batter and crust.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
Made this the other night, just for some variety. Used canola oil as we had no olive oil. And grated parmesan. It was awesome! My daughter, who hates cauliflower, was caught snitching food from her brother's plate! Everyone loved it. Definitely a keeper. Although I personally would have liked a little more seasoning, that is cook's issue, as I probably could have used a little more. Maybe some onion powder, or paprika.

Amazing Strawberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
So my daughter and I made this cake. It was awesome, except WAY too sweet. We doubled the amount of strawberries, because we're rebels that way, but next time we plan on cutting the sugar in half. Aside from the overpowering sweetness, it was moist, dense, and oh so good. With a few adjustments it will definitely be a keeper.

Chicken Artichoke Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
So I have used the combo of "cream of" soups with Mayo for a different casserole. It makes an amazing mix, expecially when you add curry. Sorry to those who don't like this, but low/reduced or fat free mayo will RUIN this. It doesn't add the right zip, but rather a sweetness that is icky. ANYWAY! I made this for supper when we were down to the dregs before grocery shopping. Only changes made: out of lemon so used pepperoncini juice which is a decent substitute, and added egg noodles cooked al dente. Yummy yummy!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Okay so I have been using this for years and years. Changes I made: I use garlic OR parmesan since they are quite strong together. I have cut the butter almost completely, and sometimes throw in sour cream. Sometimes I use heavy cream instead of milk. My entire family loves this sauce, and we have used variations for so many things! Sauce for white lasagna, casseroles, etc. It's not just a great alfredo, but a wonderful base for other things!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
So I wanted to make spinach and artichoke alfredo but wanted something a bit creamier. What I ended up doing was getting four cheese ravioli (frozen) and boiled it until half done. Lightly sprayed a casserole dish, and put them in a single layer. Put the dip on top and baked it according to instructions... Rich as all get out but AMAZING! The whole family LOVED it! Definitely making it again!

Salmon Wellington

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I've made this twice, once with all the salmon in one large wrapping, and once each wrapped individually. It is requested WEEKLY, by my boyfriend and by my "almost vegetarian" daughter both. I did reduce the dijon mustard down to 1/3 cup however, to mellow the flavor just a little. It's amazing!

Cheesy Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
My daughter makes potato pancakes every Sunday for me, and I had her try them this way last time. She followed the recipe almost exactly, using a splash of milk rather than a half cup, real bacon, and mxing the butter into the cakes instead of with the oil. They were amazing! Crispy, cheesy, full of flavor! Wonderful recipe, thanks.

Baron's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
My children got about 4 cups of raspberries from a neighbor for helping in her yard, so I suggested making a cobbler. My daughter (14 years old) used this recipe and it came out AMAZING! It was my girl's first cobbler, and it was better than mine! Just don't tell her I said that.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
We don't often make cookies at all. Or any kind of sweet. But I really wanted cookies... these turned out amazing. Mykids were able to help make them, which is always good. The dough was a little wet looking so we added about another quarter cup flour and a bit more cocao powder. Used Andes mint pieces instead of chocolate chips. They are chewy, soft, and full of flavor. Thanks for the great recipe!

Szechuan Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I read through the reviews and noticed most people left negative ones, which is usually when I look for the next recipe. For some reason I tried this one anyway, following a little bit of the advice given. I added a little extra red peppers,soy, garlic powder rather than cloves (all out), added cayenne and some Chinese five spice powder. Stir fried the beef in sesame oil, then aaded one small onion and the broccoli and green bell pepper. Turned out amazing. Kind of mellow flavor when you first take a bite, but by the time you swallow you can taste the spice and the subtle heat. The veggies were delicious, and my kids asked that I add this to rotation.

Shrimp Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
I've made this a few times. The family loves it, with the exception of my daughter not liking shrimp (She picks it out). Only thing I did differently was use different veggies once or twice according to our taste.

Roasted Red Pepper Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
So after reading the one review here I added about 4-5 oz of cream cheese for thickness, and since I was out of garlic gloves I used granulated. But the reviews I got for the dip were raving. I used a mix of red and orange mini bell peppers and over roasted them, then blended it all together. Definitely will make again, most likely with a few tweaks here and there since I am incapable of following a recipe exactly.

Dad's Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Seems like a good spin on what I usually do. I don't do the ketchup mix but I always top it with cheese. I will try your bacon idea ith my own original recipe. I'll update you when I do

Make-Ahead PHILLY Spinach Phyllo Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
It has an amazing flavor, but doesn't hold together well. The phylly dough can't stand up to the filling so the whole thing kind of goes flat. Everyone loves it though

B.L.A.T. Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
We have BLTs at least once a month, and we all like it different. I don't like lettuce but I add cheese. My son has BLT with cheese, my daughter adds cheese and avocado, and my fiance goes without cheese but adds avocado. I can't believe I never thought to do it as a wrap instead of a sandwich. Thanks a bunch!
