Apple Cake V

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
4 stars as written, 5 with alterations! First off I used one stick of butter and 3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce instead of the oil, that way its not only healthier but also less greasy. I also decreased the amount of sugar to 1 2/3 cup and increased the apples to around 4 cups. I also omitted the nuts. I've never tried the topping from the recipe but as cake I like to use cream cheese frosting, but for a "healthier" option I make them as muffins(no topping/frosting). Fantastic for breakfast with a cup of coffee!!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
I think the recipe was good, but could be so much better! First off I traded the garlic power for a few cloves of minced garlic and let it sautee in the melted butter until golden and fragrant. I used 1 1/2 cup skim milk, and a parmesan and mozzarella mix. I added double the pepper and just a pinch of salt. I was skeptical when I added the cream cheese to the butter, it didn't seem to be mixing, but once you add the milk and whisk away it all comes together. It had a great flavor, no cream cheese taste at all! Super smooth and creamy, I put it with linguine, shrimp, mushrooms and a little lemon. If only I had capers! The recipe says it makes 4 servings but I think it could easily be 6-8 depending on serving sizes.
