In fact, they have requested that I make it again when we get together... …

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce
Years ago I was introduced to fresh cheese tortellini with Alfredo sauce at a lovely restaurant at London's Heathrow Airport. I've been a big fan ever since.  I don't indulge too often, but I'm often tempted to.  Cheesy, rich, and classic, this copycat, Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce, is the easiest sauce you will ever make!  I cringe at the pricey bottled  stuff at the market.  Even if you think you can't cook, you can make this divine sauce in... …

Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies Recipe

Try these delicious lemon cream cheese cookies with essential oil! These cookies are yummy - nice and soft on the inside with a light lemon flavor. All of the lemon flavor is from essential oil! You want the butter to be softened to about room temperature, but not melted. I let the cream cheese sit out with the butter too. Might as well! It only makes the mixing even easier. :) (Keep the cream cheese covered with plastic wrap or something... …
