Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
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

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
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

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
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!

Aunt Bill's Brown Candy

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
Waste of time. The recipe came out as inteneded no problems there but what your essential making is caramels. And the caramel isn't very good. I've made much better and easier ones from this site by using recipes that say "caramels". The flavor of these is very amatuer. No one liked them. I though I was making some other type of candy. If I wanted caramels I would use the recipe on this site "Caramels" submitted by Barbara.

Deep Fried Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2006
Disgusting! I followed the directions exactly. Oil was 350 on the nose and used correct oil. They were mushy. Would rather stick my oreo's in peanut butter.

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
I loved this recipe and so did everyone at the cookout I brought it to. I used one pound of almond bark dipping chocolate instead of chocolate chips. I added 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract and I used tongs to dip crackers and then cooled them on the waxed paper. EXCELLENT! Everyone said they tasted like girl scout cookies and begged for the recipe.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
Made the first time to recipe and they were pretty good. But with adjustments they were fantastic! I wanted a truffle that had the really "melt in your mouth" center with the harder chocolate thick coating. I used 1 package of cream cheese, 2 cups of milk chocolate chips, 2 cups powdered sugar and 1 1/2 tsp almond extract. prepared as directed, but after rolling into balls, I put in the fridge for 1/2 hour to harden a bit more. I then melted 3 large squares of "almond bark" chocolate (dipping chocolate found in the chocolate chip part of the grocery store) and 3 large squares of "almond bark" vanilla. I melted them for 60 seconds in the microwave, stirred, 20 seconds more. Then dipped the balls in with a fork so chocolate could drip off and placed on wax paper to cool. These held up in tupperware for days. Everyone loved them.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
This was a great recipe. The only problem I had was getting the center of the bread to cook without burning the sides. Next time I will try it in disposable tin pans as another reader suggested.
