Chicken Fettuccine

We had this for supper. Everyone loves it, and it tastes even better as leftovers -- IF there are any!


2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup
2 cans milk
1/2 red pepper, diced
5-6 fresh mushrooms, sliced
handful of real bacon bits
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
linguine noodles (though we almost always use spaghetti noodles)

Dice chicken and fry in a bit of olive oil. Add chopped pepper, mushrooms and bacon bits.

In saucepan, heat two cans of soup with two cans of milk. Be careful that it doesn't scald and stick to the bottom of the pan! When heated, throw in mozzarella cheese and stir until cheese melts. Add chicken mixture to soup mixture.

In another saucepan, cook the noodles. Top with the creamed mixture and serve with garlic bread or tossed salad.

Cakes for April

April started out slowly for cake orders, but these past two weeks I have been so BUSY with cakes!

I had so much fun with this one!

This one was made using fondant. It's so easy to use, but now I just need to find a good recipe to make my own. It's expensive to buy.

I made a big #1 along with this order. These were 2 little "smash" cakes.

For the girly-girl :-)

In addition to these shown, I did:
~ a round chocolate cake with chocolate icing
~ another firetruck cake
~ another "welcome, baby" cake
So, a total of 10 cakes for April.
