Breading for Chicken:

Combine dry ingredients… Dredge the chicken first in milk, then in the breading, place in a greased Pyrex dish and back at 375 for 50-55 minutes or until juices run clear. At about 20-25 minutes pull out and coat the top of the chickens with some butter and replace to finish cooking.

OK, so for my four or five followers, i propose a question…. I recorded bits and pieces of my cooking tonight to create a video and I am wondering if I should focus on the video side or just stick to the photo and recipe.

Here is the link to the video if you have a free second watch and let me know…. I kinda threw the video together and my son was the camera man so it is kinda shakey.


Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo

Well I wanted to play with my pasta maker again, so I did… this time it was all about the Creamy Alfredo Sauce….
2 Cloves Garlic
2 Cups Butter
3 Cups Heavy Cream
1 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 1/3 Cup Three Cheese (Parmesan, Asiago, Romano)

Melt the butter down with the garlic in it. Once melted add the heavy cream while whisking. once all cream is added, let simmer for about twenty minutes. Next add the cheese and let all of the mixture become a homogeneous concoction. Toss with the noodles and add chicken or broccoli to your liking.

Sauteed Steak, Red Chili and Olive Oil noodles, with a homemade BBQ Sauce

Sauteed Steak, Red Chili and Olive Oil noodles, with a homemade BBQ Sauce

Ok so I started this one off with just an excuse to use my early fathers day present, I got a pasta roller, now this was much more labor intensive that I was anticipating, but it did make some of the best noodles I have ever had.

The pasta dough was really quite simple

3 Cups of Flour

4 Eggs

1/4 cup of water

The BBQ sauce was first intended to be a Steak Sauce, but while the whole house smelled like A1, it ended up tasting more like BBQ sauce, hence the BBQ title.

1 Tablespoon Butter

1 Medium Yellow Onion

2 Cloves of Garlic

2 Tablespoons Chilipowder

4 Fluid Ounces of Coffee

4 Fluid Ounces of Worshire Sauce

4 Ounces of Tomato Paste

2 Ounces of Apple Cider Vinegar

2 Tablespoons of Molasses

Add the butter to a low to medium heat pot, and then add the onions and garlic. Sweat them for about 3-5 minutes or until they become fully aromatic. Next add the rest of the ingredients, taking care with the tomato paste. Add the tomato paste in portions so that it doesn’t congeal and you get little globs of tomato in your sauce. Allow this to simmer for about 15-30 minutes or until desired consistency is obtained.
