Sunday Feast

Yesterday was a great Sunday in that I cooked some delish food!! These two recipes are 2 you must try today, I promise you will thank me! First up......Gooey Butter Cake (sounds super healthy huh?) I got the recipe from tasty kitchen!!!
Gooey Butter Cake!
First up is the "crust".......
In a bowl combine 1 package yellow cake mix, 1 stick melted butter and 1 egg!
Then press into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan, preheat oven to 350'
Then in a mixing bowl.........beat 1 8oz package of cream cheese until fluffy then mix in.......
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick melted butter
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Then pour over crust and spread evenly. You will bake this for 40-45 minutes and the middle may still be a tad "jiggly" so don't be alarmed!!!
Sprinkle with more powdered sugar and enjoy! This is so rich and yummy you will love it! I brought the rest of it to work today to share! I hope they like it has much as I do!!!!
Next up I made a YUMMY Mexican pasta dish that I got from one of my favorite cooking blogs Picky Palate! And this was so different and yummy your family will love this.
Mexican Pasta Dish
  • 1 lb pasta ( I used sprials)
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Ancho Chile Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Sicilian Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Coarse Grind Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs (fryer) chicken breast with rib meat
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup finely chopped sweet peppers
  • 1 1/2 cups Salsa Verde, mild
  • 1 cup petite diced tomatoes from can
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
I used skinless chicken breats and I they turned out just as great.  Place ancho pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper into a small bowl, stirring to combine.  Sprinkle over both sides of chicken, then rub.  Heat 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat.  Add chicken cooking until browned on both sides, about 6 minutes each side.  Place pot in oven and continue cooking for 25 turned out amazing, so it is your choice!
While chicken is cooking heat 2 tablespoons oil in another Dutch oven or medium pot over medium heat.  Add onions, garlic and sweet peppers, cooking and stirring until tender, about 5 minutes.  Add salsa, tomatoes, cream and cilantro, stirring to combine.  Add cooled pasta back to original large pot and pour sauce over top, stirring to combine. Reduce heat to low, stirring often.
TIP!! Dont be scared at the color of the sauce, once you add the cream it looks better!!
And here we have mouth is watering while I am typing!
Oh Ps.....I made homemade Bruschetta.....easy peasy......
1 can fire roasted tomatoes (drained)
Salt and Pepper
Chopped garlic
I sliced a sourdough loaf, brushed it will EVOO then baked them at 400 for 6minutes! ANd your done!
