Easy Cinnamon Fudge

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
This fudge came out flat and tasting decidedly odd. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't what I expected from fudge. Even so, I'd give it another star if the recipe didn't flatten out into such a thin sheet of confection.

Fettuccine Alfredo V

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
I've never made fettucini alfredo before, but consider myself an alfredo-snob when tasting restaurant and frozen-dinner attempts. I made this dish for a potluck, and it was a huge hit. I kept all of the high-calorie ingredients, wanting to have the best tasting alfredo sauce possible. I even added chicken and fresh mushrooms. It was incredibly good, packed pounds onto my friends (who weren't complaining at all), and reheated fairly well as leftovers (make sure you rehead on low on your stovetop). This was better than what I've had at many restaurants, although the shredding of hard blocks of parmesan cheese made me grumble more than a few times.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
I made this during Christmas, when I volunteered to bring an Irish dish to an international-themed potluck. I didn't make the 'butter well' as suggested, mixing the butter throughout the potatoes instead. I also used a peppered bacon, and even went high-calorie by keeping the bacon drippings in the recipe (my mother groaned in dieting agony when I mentioned this to her). I had to add more salt than called for, but this was still a very good recipe. My friends all loved it, and I still had some leftovers that tasted good for lunch at work.

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
This was an excellent recipe! I reduced the amount of red pepper flakes as suggested by other reviewers. I think I wound up using 3/4 of a tsp, and the sauce was hot without being overpowering. I actually also used fresh herbs (for the first time ever) with delicious results. The sauce reduced well (especially after cooling for a bit), which helped emphasize the flavors and gave the desired thickness. This is a great recipe!

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2003
I took these to a potluck at work, and people asked me for the recipe. One of my coworkers actually told me that these were the best 'tortilla spirals' she'd ever had. Wow! No one has ever given me a compliment on my cooking like that before. I took the advice of other reviewers and added 4-blend shredded Mexican cheese, as well as a healthy dollop of salsa. These even worked out well at a bridal shower.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2003
This was the first rising bread that I've ever tried to make from scratch. I followed the recipe to the letter, and didn't even mind the sweetness that resulted from the sugar most reviews suggest decreasing. The loaves did take longer to rise, but this could be due to the Denver altitude. This bread is awesome!
