My son Jack loves Fettuccine Alfredo! Instead of buying it in a box, I made fresh pasta! It was so different then store bought! Unfortunately he does not like homemade sauce. I used jar sauce but the pasta was so good it did not matter! The pasta machine is an Atlas. It was a wedding gift 25 years ago. I need to use it more! Most kitchens will have the ingredients for fresh pasta in their kitchen - all purpose flour and eggs!

I made this salad on Sunday! It is delicious and so easy! I usually use Cous Cous but wanted to try Quinoa. I used the Aldi brand of Quinoa, Simple Nature, and the recipe was on the back of the bag. Here is the recipe!
1 cup Quinoa - cook according to directions. Let chill in the fridge for about an hour.
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
I added fresh diced cucumber, grape tomatoes, kalamata olives and feta cheese. I don't add a specific amount, as much as you like!

A couple of months ago a made a pound cake. I put it in two separate bread tins as they were going to be gifts. Needless to say they did not turn out well. It tasted good but fell apart. I was able to salvage half of one as a gift but the rest went in the freezer. I took the chunks of pound cake out this weekend and made bread pudding with it! It was delicious! I just used your basic bread pudding recipe - 4 eggs, some milk, a couple tablespoons of sugar and some cinnamon. I did not put any vanilla in it because the pound cake was already tasty!
