    Fettuccine With Super Creamy Tomato Sauce

    Fettuccine with Creamy Tomato Sauce is loved by the whole family any moment of the year, so this is a four-season recipe. I understand you are surrounded with fall meals which include hearty stews, comforting soups and of course lots of pumpkin things. I’ve been cooking for fall for weeks as well, but I just want to make something which is not limited to a specific season this time around.

    Fettuccine with Creamy Tomato Sauce is loved by everyone any time of the entire year, which means this is a four-season formula. I know you are surrounded with fall recipes such as hearty stews, comforting soups and undoubtedly plenty of pumpkin things. I’ve been cooking food for fall for weeks as well, but I simply want to make something is not limited by a particular season this time. We are still obsessed with fall quality recipes like Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread and Tomato Chicken Rice Soup though and I’m sure I will be making these often this year.

    You might think Fettuccine with Creamy Tomato Sauce is the best in summer when we have fresh and tasty tomatoes. You don’t have to consider the season if you have Homemade Tomato Paste and preserved tomatoes though. We are so lucky that we maintained more than thirty jars of tomatoes last summer months! I love to use tomatoes in so many dishes, especially in soups and in various sauces I add into pasta meals. This fettuccine is merely one of those lucky dishes with summer tomatoes.

    I sauteed onion and garlic in a skillet and then added other ingredients for the sauce. I seasoned the sauce with a little dried mint and black pepper. I ended up with a wonderfully flavorful creamy sauce and nothing can go wrong with it.

    Fettuccine with Creamy Tomato Sauce is an affluent pasta dish with heavy cream, tomatoes and just a little parmesan cheese. I added the cheese right into pot and stir well to make the dish even creamier.

    I garnished it with chopped green onions, but you can use your favorite herb. Perhaps you can even then add into the sauce. Parmesan is not a must in this recipe, you can transform it too. Crumbled goat cheese would be fine too.

    All you need is a bottle of quality red wine now!


    Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes
    Yield: 4


    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 onion, diced
    4 cloves garlic clove, minced
    1 cup pureed tomatoes
    1 teaspoon tomato paste
    1 teaspoon dried mint
    1 teaspoon dark pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    3/4 pound fettuccine
    Green onions for garnish

    Put a huge container of salted water on to boil.
    On the other hand you can prepare the sauce. Heat essential olive oil in a pan on medium temperature. Add onions and garlic and prepare until sensitive about 3 minutes.
    Add in tomato paste and pureed tomato, mix.
    Season with dried mint, black pepper and salt. Cook until everything is blended. Finally pour the cream and let it simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
    Add fettuccine in to the boiling drinking water and cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes. Drain the pasta reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water.
    Toss the fettuccine and parmesan with the sauce and stir well until everything is combined well.
    You can add a little of the reserved pasta water if it looks too dry.
    Garnish with green onions and serve.

    The Rum Pineapple Cake

    True yeah, I make with alcohol a complete lot. But my father’s favorite dessert is The Rum Pineapple Cake, so once I was home this weekend, I wanted to make it a bit extra special just. I mean, heading home is hard, but it’s made just a little easier with some liquor, right?


    You Just Need:

    13 x 9 cake pan

    1 box yellowish cake mix

    1 cup rum (I used Myers’s Dark Rum, but I’m sure Malibu or Parrot Bay would be good too)

    1 can pineapple rings

    1/3 cup pineapple juice (just use the juice from the can of pineapple rings)

    3/4 cup brown sugar

    1/3 cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs (or whatever is necesary on yellow cake mix box)

    Maraschino cherries (optional)



    1. Preheat oven to 350. Construct cake pan and grease pan liberally – you have to carefully turn this sucker upside down but still make it look quite, which means this is important. Sprinkle dark brown glucose throughout skillet consistently, place pineapple bands in underneath of the pan then, arranging them in rows. Add maraschino cherries in the center of the pineapple rings, if you’d like – I’m not a fan just.

    2. In large blending stand or dish mixer, combine yellowish cake mix, veggie oil, eggs, pineapple and rum juice. Combine until well-blended. Pour cake combine over pineapple bands in cake skillet.

    3. Put in place oven for 35-40 minutes (this will prepare a little faster because of the alcoholic beverages). When cake is performed, construct a sheet of wax paper on counter top. You should flip the cake to the wax paper immediately, if not the cake shall start sticking with the dish. Remember – turn it while it’s hot!

    Yami! Frosted Banana Bars Recipe

    I’m a large fan of banana-flavored treats, so much so that sometimes I buy banana with very good intentions of eating a very healthy fruit – but then, whoops! They’re black and inedible and need to be baked into banana breads or banana bars. Oh well! What a happy “accident.”

    There are just some recipes that you love just because of the memories tied to them. My grandmother and mother have always made banana pubs with cream cheese frosting – and I’m crazy about them.


    For the batter:

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    2 cups sugar
    3 eggs
    1/2 cup ripe bananas (about three), mashed
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    Pinch salt

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1 eight ounce package cream cheese (I used neufchâtel cream cheese to cut calories)
    4 cups powdered sugar
    2 tsp. vanilla


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 cooking pan.

    2. Cream butter and glucose together. Beat in eggs, bananas and vanilla. Combine flour, cooking soda and salt in different bowl and then incorporate into banana blend.

    3. Pour into 9 x 13 pan (my grandmother also uses a 15 x 10 x 1 skillet, so that would probably be better, but I realize most people do not have this size of a pan). Bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes (the 9 x 13 pan will take longer than the 15 x 10). The bars will be done when they are not incredibly wiggly, slightly browned and a toothpick can be removed cleanly. Set aside to cool before frosting.

    4. Cream butter and cream cheese. Include powdered sugar and add vanilla to help with mixing. Do not frost pubs until cake is completely cooled. Frosting is thick, so try to spread the mixture more initially instead of laying it all on the middle, as that will make it more difficult and might tear some of the bars.*

    *I highly recommend keeping the pubs refrigerated, especially because of the cream cheese, but also because they taste better that way!

    How To Make Perfect Popcorn


    Making popcorn from scuff can be tricky. Not merely would you like as much kernels as possible to pop, nevertheless, you also want to keep carefully the kernels from burning in the bottom of the pan.
    Until my mom demonstrated me her way of cooking popcorn, I took the simple way to avoid it and used (gasp!) microwave snacks, which by the way, isn’t that healthy.
    My mother’s approach to making popcorn not only pops nearly every kernel, it prevents the kernels from burning up also. She first learned this system decades ago from the relative back of a popcorn box.
    Her strategy allows the snacks kernels to come quickly to an temperature before popping even, which leads to much fewer un-popped kernels (usually none) and fewer burnt kernels (again, usually non-e).
    Since we posted this how-to in 2005 first, it’s been one of the very most popular recipes on the website. Enjoy!

    So…. Let’s do it!:

    Cook time: 10 minutes
    Yield: Makes 2 quarts, a nice amount for two people, or for one hungry one.

    Make sure the inside of the pot is totally dry before heating the oil in it, or else the oil will sputter.
    3 Tbsp coconut, peanut, or canola oil (high smoke point oil)
    1/3 cup of high quality popcorn kernels
    1 3-quart covered saucepan
    1 Tbsp or more (to taste) of butter (optional)
    Salt to taste
    MethodHide Photos
    1 Heat the essential oil in a 3-quart thick-bottomed saucepan on medium high heat. If you are using coconut oil, allow every one of the solid essential oil to melt.

    2 Put 3 or 4 snacks kernels into the oil.

    3 When the kernels pop, add the rest of the 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in an even level. Cover, remove from temperature and count 30 secs. (Count out loud; it’s fun to do with kids.)
    This method first heats the oil to the right temperature, then waiting 30 seconds brings all of the other kernels to a near-popping temperature so that when they are put back on the heat, they all pop at about the same time.

    4 Return the skillet to heat. The popcorn should begin popping soon, and all at once. Once the popping starts in earnest, lightly tremble the pan by moving it backwards and forwards on the burner.
    Try to keep the lid slightly ajar to let the steam from the snacks release (the popcorn will be drier and crisper).
    After the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the skillet from the heat, take away the lid, and dump the snacks immediately into a wide bowl.
    With this technique, almost all of the kernels pop, and nothing burns.

    5 If you are adding butter, you can simply melt it by placing the butter in the now empty, but hot pan. Note that if you let the butter get only a little bit brown, it will add an even more intense, buttery flavor to the butter and to your popcorn. (Here’s more info on how to dark brown butter.) Just drizzle the melted butter within the snacks and toss to distribute.
    6 Salt to flavor.
    Additional tips: Through the comments section
    an If you add salt to the oil in the pan before popping, when the popcorn pops, the sodium will be well distributed throughout the snacks.
    b Fun toppings for the popcorn – Spanish smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, cayenne powder, chili pepper, curry powder, cumin, grated Parmesan cheese.
