Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
I ran into the same problem someone else did where the cheese and milk (I did use milk, not cream) separated and it was lumpy and not very appealing. I added some Italian cheese blend (about 1/4 c) and then added about a 1/3 of a stick of low-fat cream cheese and poured in a little more milk. The cream cheese really seemed to help "smooth out" the sauce. I also added some Wildtree Scampi blend to the milk and butter for a tasty garlic flavor. (in addition to the clove of garlic) Tossed it with tortellini and steamed broccoli. It was good, but I think I might change up the cheese next time.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
This was excellent! I ended up with some extra meat sauce, froze it and served it at a later date with some angel hair pasta. That too was great. I will definitely be making the lasagne again and plan to use for my pasta sauce too!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I found this recipe but didn't have a yellow cake mix BUT did have a chocolate cake mix. I decided to experiment and used that! I still added the cinnamon and added some dark chocolate chips. I thought they were very good (very moist and chocolatey) My daughter liked them but my son (17) knew there was pumpkin in them and decided he didn't like them. (I don't think you could even tell that there was pumpkin in them!!!) LOL

Twelve Minute Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Very good! I made it with penne pasta since this is all I had. I did not have sun dried tomatoes so I did what another reviewer did and added some spinach and also some grape tomatoes halved. I had some Italian spice mixes that I used in there instead of the oregano and basil. A little dry after it was mixed, so I added a drizzle of evoo. Wish I would have had some garlic bread for this!! :)

Mushroom Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This was very good...even scrambled! I am a little challenged in the omelet dept. so I just cooked and scrambled a bit. I added a few cut up grape tomatoes with the spinach. I left out the cheddar cheese and right at the end added some feta cheese crumbles. YUM!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I experimented with just cooking one... the recipe scaled down nicely for one and I have to say I LOVED it. I read some comments and changed a few things too. I added some balsamic vinegar as one person suggested, definitely added garlic and only used half the mayo. I didn't have any bacon, so I drizzled olive oil over it, sprinkled on some garlic seasoning salt and coarse pepper. About midway through cooking, I cut up a potato and put it around the chicken breast. I used a little more olive oil and stirred to coat them and put it all back in the oven together. The chicken was great and the roasted potatoes were wonderful with it.... along with my glass of chardonnay! :)

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
While these TASTE good, I didn't have success with getting them out of the muffin pan very well, so they don't look very nice. However, I will most likely try this again for the holiday season!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I have made these before but today when I needed to make these in a pinch (a group my daughter's friends came over) I had to improvise a bit. I only had one egg! So I used the 1/2 c butter, one egg and then used 1/4c (just slightly more) of applesauce. I didn't even have apple sauce around, but I DID have apples.... so I sliced 2 apples,sprinkled with a bit of sugar and cinnamon and cooked in the microwave for a few minutes. I mashed those, added to the rest of the ingredients and viola... I had great cookies for the kids! I love this recipe cuz it is so easy! (and **usually** have the ingredients around to make at any time!
