More Food!

We had a few friends over the other night. I was already planning on cooking a big feast just for fun and to try a few new things so we figured we would share the wealth. I personally think that E likes to watch Giada de Laurentis on the Food Network for more than what she cooks... but he did seem to remember 2 recipes that he really wanted me to make. One was her
Macaroni and Cheese. Very Good! We made it for Easter and then took it to a church potluck recently. It was a huge hit.

The second recipe he wanted me to make was her Chicken Carbonara. (sorry, I forgot to take pictures) It was also a HUGE hit!! Everyone at dinner LOVED IT and wanted the recipe. It was fabulous. Although the leftovers weren't as good, the pasta, served with a salad and garlic bread was amazing!!

For dessert, I made the Barefoot Contessa's Apple Turnovers. They were good but personally I felt that my Apple Dumplings were much tastier and much easier!!

Those pastries look delish, Brooke. My stuff never comes out that "clean."
