Lemon-Garlic Cream Fettuccine

This fettuccine has a distinct taste to it, in large part due to the cream cheese.  Add a side of meat (we chose pork loin) and you've got a meal.

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Yield: 12 servings

However awesome you think this cake is, it's more amazing than that.  The smooth creaminess of chocolate ganache with the peanut butter filling is fantastic.

I used Hershey's chocolate because that's the flavor closest to PB cups, but if you wanted to make it more classy then you could use some high quality dark chocolate.

  • Pesto Cheeseball
  • Horseradish-Bacon Cheeseball
  • Gorgonzola-Cranberry Cheeseball

Yield: 20 servings
