I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

I need an updated picture because it's much creamier than this.

2 c mini bowtie noodles
Boil bowtie noodles ~10 min or until done. Set aside.

For Chicken:
Olive oil
2 cloves garlic
¼ onion, finely chopped
6 chicken tenders
Salt and pepper

Heat butter and oil. Sauté garlic and onion. Add and season chicken. After both sides are white, remove tenders one by one and chop into strips. Return to pan. Cook until meat is white on the inside and slightly brown on outside edges.

For Sauce:
¼ c butter
1 clove garlic, crushed and minced
1 c milk (from powdered with water)
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cornstarch.
1 c cream (½ pint)
¼ c Parmesan cheese
½ c cheese blend-mozzarella and provolone

In a pot, melt butter on low heat. Sauté garlic a few min. In a separate bowl, combine milk, salt and cornstarch. Add to butter and stir until smooth. Add cream and simmer 5 min. Add Parmesan and stir until melted. Mix noodles, sauce and chicken together. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and salt, if desired. Serve with sweet peas.

For Pioneer Day, use wagon wheel noodles.
