Chicken & Sausage Fettuccine with Lemon Beurre Blanc

One thing I love about pasta, is its versatility. You can throw it in anything you want. In the summer I love being able to throw in every vegetable I have on hand. That’s exactly what I’m doing with this Chicken & Sausage Fettuccine with Lemon Beurre Blanc Sauce. I’m using Chives, Red Peppers, Yellow Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions, Tomatoes, and Crushed Garlic. I’m also using baked chicken & some chicken sausage. All tied together with a light, fresh Lemon Beurre Blanc Sauce.

Have I ever told you how much I love waffles? They can be sweet or savory. Simple or Complex. They’re incredibly versatile and pretty much people pleasers. We’re having some guests over and I wanted to do something different. So, this weekend I’ve created a whole Kellogg’s Eggo Waffle Bar with all kinds of delicious choices. Since, it’s so nice outside, my focus was grilling as much as I possibly can. You can’t beat that smoky flavor the grill adds to everything it touches.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Cruffins

Now, listen I know what you’re probably thinking. At least, I know what I was thinking. First a Cronut..now a Cruffin. (Shaking my head)

It sounds ridiculous, but it’s really very genius. It’s like a Hybrid Croissant, Muffin. And it’s so delicious. It’s made from Croissant dough. You can use any fillings you want in it. I’m using Raspberry Preserves and a Cream Cheese Filling. The subtle sweetness of the Raspberry and Cream Cheese meets the Flaky Buttery Croissant Dough..and It’s pure heaven.

Pineapple Turmeric Green Goodness Smoothie

Most people that know me, know that I’m pretty much obsessed with smoothies. I love them. But, where I live there aren’t really many smoothie shops. I can’t walk to the corner & hit Jamba Juice or Smoothie King. Its a bummer to me, but the bright side is that I’m forced to stop being so lazy and make them myself. And this Pineapple Turmeric Green Goodness Smoothie is one of my favorites!

Strawberry and Basil Champagne Cupcakes

For Mother’s Day we decided to bake Grandma up some Strawberry and Basil Champagne Cupcakes! A little messy, but seriously delicious! I’ve always loved the subtle combination of Strawberry & Basil. It’s a cocktail pairing favorite of mine. So putting it in a cupcake was a no brainer. The champagne’s alcohol content will cook right out, just leaving the flavor. It also makes them extra fluffy & moist, so what’s not to love! Continue Reading…
