Alfredo Sauce

This recipe turned out pretty good. It's tailored to be made in the "Bullet," but I imagine it can be made in a regular blender.

  • 1/4 c. heavy cream
  • 2 tbs. butter
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
  • 3 sprigs fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


Add all ingredients in the order they are listed, blend until smooth (if using Bullet blend with cross blade). Cover container (with Bullet use shaker/steamer lid) and microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, until the sauce is heated thoroughly. Pulse in the blender 3-4 times (if using Bullet use flat blade). Stir and serve over hot pasta.

Calico Corn

The amounts in this recipe can be adjusted for taste or for whatever you might have on hand. I have substituted summer squash for the corn when it is available.

  • 2 cans corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 can diced green chilies, not drained
  • ground cumin, garlic salt and pepper to taste

Mix together in a sauce pan to heat through. For some extra zing, add dried red pepper flakes.
