Alfredo Sauce
This is a great alfredo sauce. First you must simmer this sauce, if you bring it to a boil it will separate. Second, increase the garlic to two cloves. And most important use your own fresh grated cheese. If you use the kind in the green can made for shaking on pasta, it will not melt right! Also, I have to laugh at the ones who say, "I'm Italian and this isnt' the kind they serve in Italy". Alfredo is an AMERICAN dish, there is no Italian version. LOL There is a butter and cream sauce in Italy but it is NOT alfredo nor does it taste like a garlic, parmesan, cream sauce.

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy
The "steak" part of this recipe is great. The gravy isn't. Instead I made and fired the patties. Then in a sauce pan I made brown gravy (2 packets from McCormick), just as the gravy started to boil I put it in a clean fry pan and add the patties. I cooked them on low simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes. EXCELLENT. With this change I would give this five stars. I also added one can of drained mushrooms to the gravy mixture for the last couple minutes of cooking.

White Chocolate Gorp
This was great. I followed the recipe with the following exceptions. I used one 17 oz bag of Reeces Pieces instead of the m&m's and I used 30 oz of premium white chocolate chips melted in the microwave for the white chocolate. For those who said this was too sweet, it's important NOT to use almond bark or "white chips" which both are sugary and are not actually white chocolate at all. I also rolled out some parchement paper on the counter top to spread the mixture on. It would not have fit on a cookie sheet. After the mixture dried, about 30 minutes, I broke it up a bit and stored in container. I'll be making this one again!
