Lightened Up Fettuccine Alfredo

Happy Monday morning, everyone! If I don’t jump right in, I might just explode. Because I’ve been dreaming of and cooking up a storm like it’s my job. Well, it sort of is. The weird thing is that I’ve been making the same thing over and over again. It’s so unlike me to stick with the same recipe and see how many different ways I can incorporate it into our lives.

There are just a few dishes that I tend to make on the regular, but most of what I prepare for dinner involves new recipes and serving up whatever my fellow food bloggers are sharing. I love change and am always trying out something new. At least when it comes to food.

But THIS SAUCE. I can’t seem to get over it.

There have been several attempts at recreating some of my husband’s favorite dishes ever since finding out that lactose just isn’t his best friend. Luckily, there are many substitutions that work extremely well when it comes to emulating butter, yogurt and cheese. Or so we keep telling ourselves, ha. Yes, most of the time (with exceptions to baking and chocolate) I stand in solidarity with Adam and consume far less dairy than I used to. Which means my non-lactose game has to be on point or I couldn’t do it.

The clear winner is in the sauce. [Read more…]

Today is the day, you guys. Not only are my hubby and I the same age once again, but it’s also the day on which his French Silk Pie dreams are coming true. It also happens to be my first actual pie post here on the blog. And for good reason. Pie-baking only happens once a year in our kitchen and that is the day on which my hubby turns a year older.

It’s my least favorite thing to bake, but I gladly make an exception for my pie-loving man. So when I say this is the easiest pie of life, you better believe that I am not kidding around.

Here’s how you can get your pie fix on. [Read more…]
