I had a very busy day in the kitchen. I can't even begin to count how many times I have washed my Kitchen Aid mixing bowls and baking sheets. The day started off with me making Whoopie Pies. I had extra cream filling for the center so I used this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Whoopie-Pies-VII/Detail.aspx?prop31=2
It love the recipe, but these are best fresh so I cut the recipe in half so I wouldn't have as many laying around. Cutting the recipe in half, I get 12 very large whoopie pie cookies which when sandwiched together, I get 6 large treats!
After meeting Teresa Guidice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey a couple of days ago I have been flipping through her cookbook like crazy. Yesterday I made Rustic Italian Loaf Bread with the Olive Juice Breath Bath. Today, I decided to make homemade pasta from the cookbook.
I have been meaning to make homemade pasta for quite some time. I received the Kitchen Aid pasta roller and spaghetti cutter attachments for my mixer a couple of years ago and today was the first time I used them. I really enjoyed this and look forward to making pasta on a regular basis from now on.
Seriously. What is better than fresh pasta? It only takes 2 minutes in a pan of boiling water before it is ready to eat.
Finally, I made my MySweetCreations Peanut Butter Cookie Pie for a freind to take to a picnic tomorrow. I made it using fresh homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip. Here is the recipe if you are interested in it. I had it published on AllRecipes.com: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/MySweetCreations-Peanut-Butter-Cookie-Pie/Detail.aspx?prop31=1
