Two Quick and Easy Meals

Lately I have been coming up with quick and easy meals…. Probably because I have been busy with these two!

One quick meal is really just another sauce for my home made fettucine.  I took leftover tomato sauce and added in sauteed mushrooms and raw milk cream.  

It was a great and easy sauce, especially topped with some cheese!
 The second quick meal I made this week was roasted asparagus with fish.  For the asparagus, I mixed together olive oil, oregano, sea salt, and thyme.
 I bushed it on the asparagus and topped it with sliced lemons.
I roasted it, along with some fish, and it was quick and easy.

Sweet Easter Treat

Happy Monday!  I hope you all enjoyed a nice long (delicious) Easter weekend.  Today, I am going to be sharing one of the delicious sweet treats I made for our Easter dessert: 
This recipe comes from Kitchen Simplicity.    Feel free to click on over there for the official recipe. 
To start, I melted down some white chocolate chips with butter and raw milk cream.
I stirred it and stirred it and stirred it, until eventually it melted. Once that happened, I mixed in lemon extract and a pinch of salt.
After that was all mixed together, I stuck it into the fridge to cool.  After about 2-3 hours, it was ready to be rolled into truffles.  
Once it was rolled (like teeny tiny meatball), it was dunked into powdered sugar. 
Each one was set on a baking sheet and stuck into the fridge to solidify. 
Then, of course, I forgot to take a picture.  I was so busy setting it up in the basket and decorating it that I forgot.  So, excuse the quality of the camera-phone photos.  
 They are delightfully lemon-y and quite rich.  The best part? They are super easy to make and can be made in advance (as long as you keep it in the fridge).
