There are so many pasta lovers in the world. Some of them just play with different spices to create interesting flavors, someone surfs an internet for the classic pesto recipe, and others buy a pasta maker, and know all kinds of pasta. But all of them have a mutual feature – each of these types of cooks just loves Italian pasta.

This recipe is just for them.

The favorite recipe of the Chef Stefano Rossi. And you imagine how delicious the favorite dish of the professional, and even Italian, chef could be?

Although, of course, it is better not just imagine, but cook and try this fantastic dish!

Chocolate Mousse

This is a recipe of my dad's; I don't remember which cookbook he got it from because he's been making it ~40 years. :) I thought it was the best thing EVER when he'd make it when I was a kid, and then I thought it looked really complicated. After I got a better mixer, though, making this became a snap. (I still think it's one of the best things EVER. LOL!)

I told gingerzing1967 I'd post this; decided to do it here in case anyone else thinks it looks interesting!

Chocolate Mousse
2 1-oz squares unsweetened chocolate
8 T butter, softened
1/2 C confectioner's sugar
6 T white granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 C heavy cream and 1/4 C white granulated sugar

Melt chocolate in top of double boiler; cool slightly.
Add chocolate to butter; beat until light and fluffy.
Add sugars; beat until smooth.
Add eggs one at a time and beat 2-3 minutes after each.
Beat mousse until not grainy.
Spoon into individual serving cups and refrigerate at least two hours.
Top with homemade whipped cream: whip cream and sugar in cold bowl until stiff peaks form.

Future In-law dinner (I decided to do a 180)

      I decided to completly scratch the meal I had planned (too much work).  And so now I'm dead set on making this instead. This is something I've made several times, and I know it's pretty darn good. I don't remmeber where I got it, but I've tweaked the hell out of it over the years to where it's kind of a different recipe.

       *8 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1/2 of a medium onion-diced
  • about 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • about 1 tbl spoon of finely chopped parsly
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 pound of raw cleaned shrimp
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 of small scallops
  • Small can (4oz of sliced mushrooms)

 

Directions

1.     Cook linguine according to package directions.

 

2.     Meanwhile, in a saucepan, sauté the onion and garlic in butter until onion is crisp-tender. Gradually add the cream and parmesan.

3.     Cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted.

4.     Add the shrimp and small scallops

5.     Continue cooking on medium low heat until shrimp become mostly pink (they will continue cooking with the heat of mixture and you don't want to overcook)

6.     Mix in chopped parsley

7.     Top linguine with shrimp/scallop mixture.  (serves about 4)

****Garnish with shredded Parmesan and enjoy!****


I'm serving this with fresh garlic bread, a nice crisp salad, and a nice bottle of white wine ;)

SO EXCITED!!!

(no subject)

So, my future in-laws are coming to dinner. They are both super nice, but I've NEVER cooked for them before. They are both accustomed to eating great food. My fiance told them that we'd be cooking for them when they came down, but we're both seniors in college, and our meal planning skills are pretty lack-luster. I'm a pretty good cook, but we could really use some help creating a delicious and cohesive meal plan.


So far we've decided to make :
Oven baked  BBQ ribs
Homemade cole slaw
Honey cornbread muffins
aaaand? I feel like there are too many sweet elements in the meal. Aside from a salad, what else would go well with this meal?!

Mushroom Pie

Lately I have found myself perusing my local library more and more often. I also have found myself solely interested in the cook books as of late. I found this little gem of a recipe. It had peaked my interest when I was reading the book and I tried it. The pie was amazing, so I though I need to write about this one. This is unlike any savoury pie I had tried and I am glad I did!
