BAKE-OFF Pasta Alfredo

Would you believe my husband is Italian and we rarely eat pasta in this house. Honestly.

Jen on the other hand likes to take it even a step further and finds substituting for healthy ingredients a game if you will. Then there is me *insert awkward pause*. With one of my favorite combos since childhood as butter and sugar whipped together. Horrible. I know. So as you could imagine, I’ll […]
