fettuccine alfredo & bruschetta

Last week I made a super easy Fettuccine Alfredo and Bruschetta for dinner. It was so good and so easy to make, I thought I’d share it here. Fettucine Alfredo (from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook) Ingredients: *8 ounces fettuccine *2 tbsp butter *1 cup whipping cream *1/2 tsp salt *1/8 tsp ground black […]

give me pizza

I made my own pizza from scratch this past weekend! It was really fun, really easy, and really DELICIOUS. I used this dough recipe and this sauce recipe and added my own toppings (grilled onions and red pepper). You can roll out the dough super thin, and it will rise to a super yummy crust. […]

vegetable quiche

I’ve been trying to get back into the kitchen recently. 1) because I actually enjoying cooking now and 2) to save money. We haven’t exactly saved money with the awesome summer adventures we’ve had these past couple of months (Disneyland, camping, visiting Texas, etc.), so we figured it’s about time we get back to doing […]

They are so good, and strangely, I’d never even had a burrito bowl there. I decided the recipe seemed easy enough to recreate at home. […]

Here is another “vegetables and pasta” recipe, except this tastes so differently than the roasted vegetable pasta. I’ve never made homemade lasagna before, but this recipe is delicious. For all you meat lovers […]

roasted vegetable pasta

I haven’t been eating meat for over two months (except for one slip up I was really upset about that involved me nannying a sick child and eating chicken noodle soup with her. I honestly didn’t realize I had eaten meat until two hours later, but that’s another story). I still don’t know how long […]

eats

One of my unofficial resolutions this year is to cook more. If you’ve followed my blog, you know how much of a baker I am (mostly of chocolate chip cookies…weekly). Cooking was something I was never taught growing up, and since it doesn’t always lend itself to exact measurements and an easy step by step […]
