*Restaurant Quality* Fettuccini Recipe

Our household does Sundays a little differently. We love to spend the day together because it’s the one day each week we’re guaranteed to be together. It means a lot to me that my family sits down together to eat dinner and enjoy a movie. (We’re working our way through the Harry Potter series!)

On one of these Sundays, I wanted to come up with something different. Something I hadn’t tried before. A Raine original that wasn’t inspired by anything but my own brain (and taste buds if I’m being honest).

I knew I wanted broccoli, beans, and turkey sausage. The rest just came naturally! My husband could have died with how good he said it was, so I’m considering this one a win!

Ingredients:

Half a package of fettuccine
1 can of Navy beans
3 tbsp of Alfredo sauce
10 oz of chopped broccoli
A turkey sausage link (10 oz)
Garlic powder/Onion Powder/Pepper

Directions:

  1. While boiling water for your fettuccine, chop and season the turkey sausage link (garlic powder, onion powder and pepper).
  2. Spray a pan with cooking spray or use olive oil, and start heating up the broccoli and Navy beans on medium heat. By the time they’re cooked through, the fettuccini should be ready
  3. Drain the fettuccini and add the Alfredo sauce, stir and then add the broccoli and beans. Keep the food on a low heat burner
  4. Place the turkey sausage into the same pan used for the broccoli and beans on medium heat until cooked through. Then add the meat to the fettuccini mixture and you’re ready to serve!

I hope you enjoyed this little recipe, let me know if you plan on trying it!

Christmas Coal Recipe

Tis the season! It’s also the season of figuring out what to put in those stockings, and this is an easy, delicious snack that the kids will love finding (whether they’ve been naughty or nice).

This was so fun and easy to make, so parents gather around. You don’t need a whole lot, just a bit of butter, mini-marshmallows, chocolate rice crispies, and semi-sweet milk chocolate chips!

I’ve been trying to post more on my facebook page (which I’ll obviously be sharing this on) and managed to figure out how to do page stories! You guys already know how much I love doing instagram stories!The first thing you do is melt the butter, then add the mini marshmallows. The reason we do mini, is because A)¬† they blend better and B) it’s easier to measure the minis since there’s less airspace. Look at those and I tested these a couple weeks ago with the boys. They INAHLED these! “Mommy, this is GOOD!” is something I heard a lot during this little trial, so trust me when I say, these are immediate winners!These don’t really need any garnish, but I wanted to give it a little something special so I added some gold luster! It’s not necessary but if you have some extra time, it gives it a bit of mining sparkle!

Ingredients:

3 tbsp butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
3 cups cereal
*gold or silver luster
*a couple drops  lemon or vanilla extract

*Items optional

Directions:

  1. Melt the butter and combine the mini-marshmallows until dissolved and well blended
  2. Add in chocolate cereal and fold the cereal into the mixture until once again it is well blended (take a shot every time I say that… just kidding, don’t do that)
  3. Spread into a pan and let cool (I put it in the freezer with a plastic cover and left it for about an hour)
  4. After the coal is cooled, shape them into little balls
  5. Melt the chocolate chips and roll the balls into melted mixture before placing on a sheet and cool them in the freezer
  6. This part is optional: Use the luster and a couple drops of extract and brush it on the cooled chocolate coal to give it a fun little finish

I hope you guys have fun with this and have a great weekend!
