I also loved to cook with my grandmothers, also both excellent cooks. I can still hear their voices now. I can hear them and see them telling me how to do something and demonstrating it as they spoke. Sometimes when I cook, I "hear" them with me, "telling" me how to do something or I remember a funny story they told or remember an fun event.
We had a great day. Hope all you mom's out there had a wonderful day today as well.
Mom insisted on cooking, trust me she is an absolutely amazing cook! My parents owned a pizzeria/restaurant at one point. Below are some pics of her amazing meal and our yummy sweets afterwards!
half and half
Melt butter in a saucepan on low heat. Add heavy cream and half and half and egg yolks (beaten lightly). Add salt (go light as cheese is salty) Cook until thick, stirring often. Add parmigiano cheese just before serving.
Cook chicken breast until browned nicely and cut into small squares. Do not season as you don't want to take away from the flavor of the alfredo sauce. Add squares of chicken into the sauce, just before you are ready to pour the sauce over the fettuccini.
Boil fettuccine, do not over cook, you want it fairly firm (al dente) as when you pour the hot alfredo sauce over the fettuccini it will soften some more. You don't want a bowl of mush. Pour sauce over fettuccini generously, it will soak it up so don't be afraid to add a lot. Be sure to leave some sauce for the side. Add some more Parmigiano cheese sprinkled on top of bowl of pasta. Serve and enjoy!
