Fettuccine Alfredo V

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
it's a keeper. thick, heavy, rich & cheesy, but sometimes you're in the mood for that. after reading 3 pages of reviews, i started conservative: tried with 3 minced cloves, could use more. next time will step it up to 4. used bagged grated parm (it's what i had on hand), no clumping or seperation issues, here's how i did it: stirred constantly, whisk at first, switched to a soft spatula as it got thicker. added cream slowly off heat, whisking. back on med heat until bubbly, then add cream/egg mix, added very slowly while whisking. added dash of nutmeg, and less than 1t parsley. could use more of both. the on/off heat thing may be a function of my crappy cooktop. used less than 1 cup of parm. quite 'cheesy' at that. hubby rated my conservative version at 4 stars. maybe we'll add spinach next time, definitely more garlic.

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
i read the reviews before i made this, and decided to add 2 tablespoons of butter to keep it from sticking to the crock. it either worked, or my slow cooker is not suceptible to sticking. i cooked it on low overnight, 9 hours, and it was fantastic. i made it again the next night with chopped apple added before cooking. if you do this, make sure to reduce the water by about 3/4 of a cup.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
wonderful!! made mine with roasted red pepper and a few sun dried tomatoes. sauce was made with half and half, and turned out a bit thinner than expected, but was well absorbed by the pasta, and not at all a problem once assembled. for cajun spice, i used paul prudhommes poultry magic, and drenched it!! next time I'm going to try it with shrimp and substitute buttermilk.

Baked Cream Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
This was so simple to make and it tastes excellent, especially considering how little effort and how simple the ingredients. The first time I made it, I didn't have creamed corn, so I used regular canned corn. Having read the reviews beforehand, I did use 2T of flour. It was firm enough, but still quite moist. This one is a keeper!

Haitian French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
I think I may have found my new french toast recipe! The orange flavor was just enough. We used home-made cinnamon raisin bread fresh from the breadmaker. Thanks for a great recipe!

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
Wonderful! I made the recipe as written with the addition of a little more lemon juice and 1tsp orange zest, marinated for about an hour and a half. The marinade itself doesn't seem like much, but the tuna really takes to it well. Don't overcook your tuna and it will be moist and equisite!

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2005
Excellent! I used 1/3 c. sugar & substituted finely chopped carrots instead of pepper. I also used mayo instead of Miracle Whip. A trick for a creamy dressing: seperate the egg yolk from the hard-boiled egg & blend with the mustard until smooth. I recommend French's Sweet & Tangy mustard.
