Easy Alfredo Sauce I
This is a great recipe! So simple. I ended up halving the butter, because really, one stick of butter is just too much, and a whole stick is not needed. The trick for me was to heat the cream and butter together until almost the boiling point, and THEN adding the grated parmesan or romano cheese. It thickens up quickly. I've been making this for years, and occasionally I've had it go grainy or curdle on me, and I have no idea why it happens... if anyone does know, please post a response. Still a great, yummy, simple recipe. Thanks!!

Authentic, No Shortcuts, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
I think I'd use the Authentic Red Beans and Rice recipe submitted by Miami Beach instead of this one if I were to make it again. Far too watery, and sausage was overcooked in the broth. The other recipe calls for less water (I substituted chicken broth), and to put the sausage in over the last 30 mins which I highly recommend! Sausage was like rubber by the time we ate it.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts III
I made these last year for Thanksgiving and Christmas and they were a hit. They did take a lot lot longer to cook (about an 1 1/2 hours, but I didn't mind it because I had plenty of time. If I were short on time, I'd microwave them or precook the bacon a bit in a pan. They were also a bit of a project to wrap up, but it was a fun project. They were a big hit, especially among the bacon lovers.
