Chicken and Bacon Rotini

Chicken and Bacon Rotini
Chicken and pasta with bacon. I’m in. Every. Single. Time. What I love about this pasta dish, well it would probably be easier for me to tell you what I don’t like about it. That would be that somebody else wasn’t making it for me. That’s about it. There are so many plus items for this dish. It’s made in less than 30 minutes. You can use leftover grilled chicken and bacon to save time. Before the emails start flying into my inbox asking how does anyone have leftover bacon let me tell you. You have to HIDE a few slices when you’re cooking it for breakfast and then you can use it during your evening cooking. Simple. That is if you’re good at hiding things. Otherwise just plan on making more bacon. There are worse things.

Flourless Black Forest Cake

Flourless Black Forest Cake

Don’t let the flourless fool you, this cake is absolutely amazing, and yes you can make a cake without flour. I have to say (and I’ve probably said this before) but I had my reservations when I first started making flourless cakes way back when. I mean a cake without flour? How and can that even be good? The answer to all the things is YES. This my friends is a whole lot of dark chocolate gluten free goodness on a plate and you should make it immediately.

Espresso Buttercream

Espresso Buttercream

Coffee ain’t just for drinking friends. Nope, it’s also for doing all kinds of other stuff with, like turning it into a beautiful blissed out buttercream. If you like COFFEE as much as I do you’re going to love this hopped up espresso buttercream. It’s going to give your dessert a little kick in the caffeinated pants. I mean that’s if you can manage to not eat all of it before it’s time to slather it onto a cake, or cupcakes, or between two cookies. Whatever you’ve got handy, a spoon. We won’t judge.

Honey and Pistachio Panna Cotta

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta
It’s APRIL tomorrow people. I just can’t believe it. Where has the first quarter of this year gone? It’s passed me by in a cold white flash I guess. Not that I’m not looking forward to spring. Real spring that is. The one with flowers popping up, much much warm weather, my hands in the garden, cute wedges on my feet and lots of wind therapy and tangled hair from the open road. Not this current bi-polar spring that is going on. I’ve got whip lash trying to keep up. Heater on. Heater off. Shorts sleeves. Long sleeves. Gah. I’m going to drown myself in a few cups of this panna cotta and all will be well until the weather makes up it’s mind.

Easy Ragu Sauce

Easy Italian Ragu Sauce

I love a good meat sauce. What’s not to love, it’s hearty stick to your ribs kinda food. Sometimes though I don’t have the time that my beloved BOLOGNESE sauce takes to make. No fear our easy Italian Ragu Sauce comes to the rescue. It takes about 1/4 of the time that our Bolognese sauce takes to make and tastes out of this world. It starts with Johnsonville’s sweet Italian ground sausage, which has a lot of flavor packed right in there. What does that mean besides it tastes amazing? That means there’s less spices we have to the pot. Win. Win.

Mushroom and Leek Spaghetti Carbonara

Mushroom and Leek Spaghetti Carbonara
If you’ve known me for any length of time you KNOW that Spaghetti alla Carbonara is my hands down all time favorite meal. It’s the meal I would eat ALL. DAY. EVERY. DAY. That’s if I had a super ramped up metabolism and/or didn’t gain any weight no matter what I shoveled into my mouth. I of course am not blessed with that metabolism. Nope, and if you are one of those VERY lucky people, please don’t tell me. That wouldn’t make me like you very much and I really want to like you.
