Recipe(s) of the Day! Enjoy!

 Hey folks this is a super easy , super quick. (and very yummy) recipe, and my own. I recommend buying the refrigerated fettucinni noodles, or if you are inclined to, make your own  noodles (I will include a noodle recipe also) for a better tasting dish. Warning, nothing in this recipe is lowfat! Cooking time 20-25 minutes. Here goes:

Fettuccine Alfredo

2 tablespoons of chopped or minced garlic cook lighty in fry pan with olive oil and basil before adding to pan
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh basil (you can use dried, but the fresh is so much better) lighty saute along with 2-3 tbsp of olive oil in a pan
*if you are making chicken/and or broccoli alfredo it is good to cut chiken into small pieces and fry in pan with the above until it is done

put in a small pot on stove top set on low heat with

2 packages of philly cream cheese (regular rectangular packages in deli section)
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese (also found in deli section of grocers)
16 onces of butter salted
1 tsp pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Use whisk to blend as cheese melts with butter. Please note the parmesan will not melt completely so don't worry ^^. When the ingredients are well blended add:

1 quart of heavy whipping cream (from dairy section usually next to regular cream)

blend until well heated serve over noodles, and with bread sticks ) Friends and family always love fresh bread, and you can put leftovers into ziplock baggies for the next days lunch!  

basic pasta dough recipe recipe
This is not my pasta recipe, which is more complex, but a simpler verson for noodle noobs, and still perfectly delicious.  If you really want the recipe I use send me a request and I will forward it to you.


1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water

In a medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the flour, add the slightly beaten egg, and mix. Mixture should form a stiff dough. If needed, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water.
On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for about 3 to 4 minutes. With a pasta machine or by hand roll dough out to desired thinness. Use machine or knife to cut into strips of desired width.

Desert recommend Cherries Jubilee

2 cans 16 ounce pitted bing cherries with juice
1/2 cup kirsch (alcohol) or cherry brandy
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar

In a long handled saute pan over medium heat, combine the cherries and juice with the sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is reduced by half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the butter and stir until melted and completely incorporated. Remove the pan from the heat, add the brandy and return the pan to medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil. (Don't forget to dim the lights when you add the brandy!) The brandy may ignite but will eventually burn off.

Divide the 1 pint of vanilla (or use my favorite vanilla bean) ice cream among 4 bowls and top with the cherry mixture. Serve immediately.

*Notes: Substitutions
Cognac or regular brandy may be substituted for the cherry brandy (also called Kirsch) in this recipe.
