Alfredo Sauce

This alfredo sauce recipe is the bomb dot com.  I’ve tried many, and this one beats them all.  Maybe it’s a personal preference, but I’m not a huge fan of sauces that are too thick, and that’s always my issue with homemade alfredo sauces.  I like them a little bit thinner, so they coat the pasta better.  You don’t need a lot of this sauce to make anything you’re eating taste absolutely divine, trust me.

Gnocchi mac n cheese…aka crack n cheese

Gnocchi mac n cheese!!  Or as I lovingly coined it, crack n cheese.  That’s what this is!  SERIOUSLY y’all.  Don’t make it.  Don’t ever make it.  Because you will not be able to stop eating it.  I mean, homemade mac n cheese on it’s own is winning, am I right?  But, for real, who doesn’t love potatoes and especially when they are covered in cheese?!

Goat Cheese Quiche

Goat cheese quiche – could there be a better idea than that in the history of quiche making?  I don’t think so.  Quiche sometimes seems old fashioned to me but sometimes seems like a totally delicious can’t have a brunch without it type of meal.  When quiche became popular in the 80’s, it was pretty basic.  Now, thanks to the internet and so many creative bloggers out there, there are SO MANY yummy varieties.  So, skip the cheddar cheese and bacon and get creative.  Make some goat cheese quiche asap.  goat cheese quiche

Ad: Molten Lava Brownie Pie

Molten lava brownie pie.  Yes.  That’s what I said.  I did the unthinkable.  I combined a molten lava chocolate cake with brownies.  You may have thought the molten lava chocolate cake was untouchable – perfection that couldn’t be improved upon.  BUT you were wrong.  I came, I saw, I conquered.  Seriously.  I will probably never make this again – because, MY WAIST LINE that’s why.  I literally couldn’t stop eating this directly from the pan with a spoon.  I’m not sure how I managed to save any for the pictures.  It was that good y’all.

Seafood Fondue

Seafood Fondue…get in my belly!  This is one of those dishes that, once again, I had tried at a local cajun seafood place.  It was my favorite thing to get there, but at $14.95 a pop it was getting old quick.  I loooove to go out to eat but you know what I love even more?  When I can make the same thing at home!  So, after playing around a bit, I’ve been able to make an even better version of McAdoos Seafood Company’s seafood fondue.

Make Ahead French Toast – Creme brulee style.  It sounds complicated but it’s NOT.  The beauty of this dish is how easy it is to impress your brunch guests.  With only a little bit of effort.  It’s genius.  You start the night before, by throwing a few ingredients together, slicing up some challah bread and covering it with the milky, egg-y cinnamon-y goodness that makes french toast, well, french toast.  You let it sit overnight and simply pop it in the oven in the morning and BAM.  Easy no fuss brunch meal that will have your guests wondering where in the world did you find the time!
