Easy Alfredo Sauce II
I kind of followed the recipe tngirl wrote in and melted 2 tbsp country crock, 1/3 cup heavy cream and shredded ramano (I was out of Parmesan) and I also added 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp of real bacon bits, and 1/4 cup steamed broccoli pieces. It turned out really creamy and delish over linguine noodles with a dash of salt and pepper.

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie
Love this pie! Like a few of the other reviewers I found this recipe on a coupon and made it a few days later. I substituted Cool Whip Free for original Cool Whip and used Original Recipe Smuckers Hot Fudge instead of Smuckers Hot Fudge Topping and used way less than even half the jar. My boyfriends favorite duo is chocolate and peanut butter, so this was a major hit with him! It is super rich, so you only need a sliver to satisfy your sweet tooth and it only gets better overnight in the fridge. Next time I may use the 1/3rd less fat cream cheese and less peanut butter because it is so rich.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
Yummy and rich! I added caramel extract instead of vanilla and it was delish. Next time I'll try to jazz it up more. This recipe is even easy for an amateur baker like myself!
