Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
Loved this recipe!! I did add a couple of teaspoons of hot sauce for a little kick and used dry mustard instead of the Dijon. Very creamy - great Christmas Eve side served with a honey baked ham for a large family. I did increase the recipe to accommodate 15 servings which fits nicely into a 13" x 9" cassarole for table service. Thanks very much for this awesome recipe!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
Possibly the best meatloaf I've ever made. I varied the meat by using eqaul parts ground beef/veal/sausage and used 1 cup (instead of 3/4 cup) of ritz cracker crumbs (because I had no saltines) to soak up more liquid. A tad more ginger and less brown sugar would be my only other changes. the first meatloaf I've made that was perfect for slicing the next day - meatloaf sandwiches - yummy!

Parmesan Spinach Balls
Even picky eaters love this recipe. I've used this as a family gathering staple for years. Also freezes well - make extra and freeze on a cookie sheet, toss into a freezer bag and you'll have them on hand - no fuss, no muss.
