#Recipe: Potato and Cheese Pierogies

One of the things I wish I had done while my Dad was still alive was making him some Polish food. I am by no means a pro at this but it is something I wanted to learn to make. I have made these a handful of times and they were always a huge hit with everyone who has tried them. While my boys and I were back home for Christmas, my mom talked me into making them for her. They are really not as difficult as you might think. Just time consuming. I wanted to get a nice picture of them finished by the hounds moved in and I didn’t get a chance :( Most people serve their pierogies with sour cream but I also like mind with a nice spicy brown mustard.

Recipe: Pasta Amatriciana

I was very excited to try this recipe and I have to tell you I was a bit disappointed. It had nothing to do with the recipe being good or bad, it was good, it just wasn’t for us. This is only my second encounter with cooking wines and I expected more of the wine taste to cook off. I don’t drink so the called for amount was a bit much. My friend, who is an ex chef, even thought it was a bit much. I listed the recipe as written originally but with some suggestions. I used Spaghetti even though I originally was going to use Angel hair. I thought the chunky sauce might be a little much for the fine pasta. I hope you will give this a try and let me know what you think! It was very easy to prepare.

#Recipe: Easy Fettuccine Alfredo and Chicken

I made this for dinner the other night and just had to share! I am sorry to say that it was a time restricted night and I didn’t get to take picture of all of the steps for you.  I will try to make it again and add some photos at a later date. Please don’t hold me to that :) It was SOOO delicious and easy! Give it a try and come back and tell me what you thought!

#Recipe: Healthified Mexican Pasta Skillet

This is a nice little way to make an otherwise not so healthy dish a little better for you. I personally left out the Salsa because I don’t like it and it was still fantastic!! I am not normally a Mexican food eater (not that I would really consider this Mexican) but I gave it a try and it was a success. If anything else it can just be a little way to jazz up the plain old pasta on a plate. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
