Scallop Fettuccine Alfredo

For my Community TV show at Shaw East Kooteny, they wanted me to do dishes for Valentines Day in December so they could be ready to show in January. So my clock was messed up but being married to She Who Must Be Obeyed means I always feel lucky in romance.

She Who Must Be Obeyed heaved a long suffering sigh and said, “Call it Monday.” She must be obeyed. Continue reading Monday Mac & Cheese

Who would want those. Ok, they’re not that bad. Don’t look at me like that.  Ok, I like them too. However, they can be adjusted to make them more flavourful and made from less processed food. That is what I have done with Beef Mushroom Casserole. Continue reading Beef Mushroom Casserole
