Portobellos and Tortellini? Yes, please!

I have never been a huge Alfredo fan, but I am a HUGE fan of portobellos. I saw a recipe in Allrecipes that had Portobellos, Tortellini and Alfredo, AND wine- sounded awesome. Well guess what? It was... Make it! Recipe can be found here.

Quick, Easy and Delicious

I know those were the words you wanted to hear... For a quick, easy and delicious dinner, why not some Chicken Parmesan? I made spaghetti using sauce from a jar, (don't laugh at me, I used the MEAT flavored Ragu for a chicken dish), Parmesan Shake N Bake, 4 thin cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and Kraft shredded mozzarella with a touch of Philly (for creamier consistency). I baked the chicken for about 20-25 minutes while I boiled the spaghetti. In a 8x11 inch glass pan I sprinkled some shredded mozzarella and poured the spaghetti over it after I mixed it with the sauce. Once the chicken was done, I placed it on top of the spaghetti, poured some more sauce over the chicken and sprinkled cheese on top. I popped it in the oven at about 350 for about 10-15 minutes, enough for the cheese to get melty. It made for a very yummy dinner!

Baby Boy Shower Cake

A friend of mine is expecting a boy and I volunteered to make her cake. I planned on trying to get the smoothest blue icing, but unfortunately, that didn't work out! That morning, I kneaded some blue into some fondant I had ready and decided to just cover it up. Whew! What a life-saver! Unfortunately, the cake also slid a wee on the "grease-proof" cake round, but oh well... Here is Baby Jesse David Scarborough's cake! Congratulations, Stacey and Jason! :o)

Sweet Cheesy Enchiladas, Y'all!

I was looking through the Woman's Day magazine the other day and came across a recipe for some Easy Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas by Campbell's- being that my hubby has been requesting Mexican for some time (even though these were more Tex-Mex), I decided to make them. Boy am I glad I did! If you like any sort of cheese, or chicken, or any form of deliciousness, you have to make these. Later!

TiKi CaKe!

It was decided Monday that we would have a Luau party at work to have another excuse to eat. (Who doesn't love to eat?!) Anyway, I said I would make a cake and decided to make it resemble the face on the plates. I made Devil's Food cake with homemade chocolate frosting that I tried to make look like real wood. The rest of the face is marshmallow fondant.

15th Birthday Cake - 2nd Full Fondant Attempt


My niece (the one I made the Skittles cake for last year) asked that I PLEASE make her cake this year. Her request? A two-tiered zebra striped cake with a purple peace sign on the 2nd tier. She later requested that I replace the peace sign with yellow flowers. I know she likes the color green so I used it to accent the cake as well.

I know the “15” looks a little like “25” but it was the only thing I could work with at the time since I rolled the fondant out a bit thickly and I was afraid to do any more with it. I brushed the number with Wilton’s “Leaf Green” pearldust to make it pretty. Needless to say, my niece LOVED the cake which made me very happy. Here’s to practicing more with fondant, it’s so much fun!

31st Birthday Cake for Hubby


My dear husband had one request and one request only for his birthday cake. Too Much Chocolate Cake and chocolate frosting! I complied and had nothing but rave reviews, the cake was absolutely wonderful! Alas, I can only dream until I get to make it again! Anyone have this request? Anyone...?
