Garlic Alfredo Sauce

I will never be buying Alfredo Sauce at the grocery store again! This recipe is incredibly easy and restaurant quality goodness. MS orders Chicken Alfredo on a regular basis when we go out to eat and he and I both loved this! And so easy!


4 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic – finely minced
1/2 a package of cream cheese - soft and cut into cubes
1 cup of milk
4 oz parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch of salt


Melt the butter in a medium saucepan; add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Add cream cheese stir with a whisk until smooth. Add milk a little at a time; stir in parmesan cheese and pepper.

Season with salt – the sauce should thicken quickly – Enjoy!

Found via Tasty Kitchen.

Hawaiian Pork Chops

I found this recipe via Tasty Kitchen; and it turned out great - and is paired very nicely with rice! I was looking a different way to prepare pork chops, I'm not a huge fan of them myself, but this recipe made me like them a little more!


1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
6 pork chops
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of ketchup
1/4 cup of vinegar
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1 can of crushed pineapple


Mix salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a bowl – season both sides of the meat and place in a casserole dish.

Mix the sugar, ketchup, vinegar and soy sauce in a bowl – pour over the pork chops.

Pour the crushed pineapple (including juice) over the top of the chops.

Cook for 45 minutes @ 350.

This is a great pancake recipe that I found on Justjennrecipes. It's very versatile in that you can spice it up or leave it traditional. I made them on Valentine's Day and added some melted chocolate to some of them, just a little piece of heaven inside! :)


2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 cups milk
Nutella or melted chocolate chips (you can use white chocolate, Reese’s chips etc. for a twist)


In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add an egg and the milk, stir until the mixture is just combined.

Make pancakes as you normally would, then place a dollop of nutella or melted chocolate in the center, top this with a little more batter to form a pocket.
Once the bubbles start to pop and the bottom is browned, carefully flip the pancake over and ta da!

A great Valentine ’s Day treat for breakfast – I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to shape these.

You can also place some strawberries, or blueberries in the middle in lieu of the chocolate mixtures.
