I basically followed the same steps of sauteeing a diced purple onion and 3 garlic cloves in 2 T of butter and 2 T of olive oil for 2 minutes. Then I added pureed sundried tomatoes (a can of them from Trader Joe's) instead of a can of tomato sauce. After this, I added 1/2 cup of vodka for 3 minutes and then the 1/2 cup of heavy cream. I added salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. It was good, but not GREAT. But I think the vodka dish was a hard one to beat.
I did, however, love using one of my favorite pasta shapes!Strozzapreti!
These Apple Banana Muffins were really wet but if you get over that they're still pretty awesome. I missed having my crispy muffin top but the body was light and not too dense. They're made with applesauce, apple chunks, and banana and almost no oil or butter. Pretty impressive if you ask me!
I adapted it from this bread recipe and baked at 350 for 25 minutes. Maybe if you baked at a higher temperature it wouldn't look as soppy!
I can't wait to have this weekend to bake and cook and sleep in. We were planning on going snowboarding but Nick is a little sick and we decided to postpone until we've recovered from all the partying and I've made enough pasta and muffins to feel like a trophy housewife again :P
