French Apple Tart

Very good. I found the crust easy to make, but you can also substitute store-bought puff pastry for the crust if you are out of time.
Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (optional — this is my addition. I love a little sugar in a tart shell.)
  • 12 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed and chilled, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. table salt
  • 7 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and halved*
  • 1/4 cup sugar


frangipane

  • Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for serving

Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine

If you want to cook something good, but you’re not in the mood to stay to much in the kitchen, pasta is the right answer. It’s fast, not messy, and tastes great. Here you have a recipe that uses fettucine. I already posted another recipe with fettucine that you can find here, but that one is slow cooker. This one is faster. Also, this one is creamier, since it has béchamel sauce in it.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1/2 cup frank's original hot sauce
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1.5 lbs uncooked chicken breast, diced
  • 1 lb box fettuccine noodles
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley or basil
