coffee ice cream wordpress

Wow the kids or loved ones with this amazing treat.  Fast and easy.  No ice cream maker needed.  Only a bowl and an imagination.  The taste is unbelievable and the texture will have them screaming for more.

Decadent & Easy No-Churn Coffee Ice Cream

Ingredients:

2 cups heavy cream

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

4-5 tsp instant coffee + 2 1/2 tsp warm water (I love using Folgers instant coffee; great taste)

2 tsp vanilla extract

***If I have it on hand, I use half instant coffee and 1/2 espresso powder in my recipe.  So rich and good.  (2 tsp of each; I’d try it with just instant coffee though.  Espresso powder can be found in coffee aisle in a grocery store. 

Instructions:

In a large bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Dissolve instant coffee granules in warm water and stir into heavy cream mixture along with sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract.

Pour ice cream mixture into an airtight container and freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight.  Mix in any added ingredients such as broken up candy bars or other things after you put the ice cream into a container.

Serving Suggestions:

You can sprinkle a little espresso powder over it before or after if freezes.

For a sexy treat for the adults, top off 2-3 scoops of ice cream with a shot of kahlua or amaretto. Then top with whip cream and shaved chocolate.

Put a scoop on a warm brownie for a tasty treat. Or put it between your favorite cookie; refreeze and you have your own cookie ice cream bar. Use your imagination; there are no limits!

Optional:

Add 2 of your favorite candy bars chopped up. Add chopped up chocolate or chocolate chips to your taste.

Cut up brownies and add to the ice cream when soft. You can even add lightly salted pretzels if you dare. Add nuts or anything else your little sweet tooth desires. EPIC.

You can also put the ice cream in small containers like Tupperware for individual servings or put it in large Tupperware containers.

“SUPER Fast & Easy Amazing Authentic Fettuccine Alfredo”

fetuccine alfredo

ANYONE CAN MAKE THIS, EVEN TEENS!

I hope that everyone’s New Year has started out well. It’s time to get back into the swing of things and I’m starting out with a bang!  Jim Jax

Fettucine Alfredo is thought to have been invented by Alfredo di Lelio I in 1914 at his restaurant, Alfredo, in Rome.  It was made famous when newly wed A list movie star couple Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks fell in love with the dish on their honeymoon in 1920.  It’s been a huge favorite world wide ever since.

This is actually the original recipe from Chef Alfredo.  It is so simple, easy, fast and amazingly delicious.  Wow your date or special someone or create a great family dinner treat.  Use variations.  It’s not for every night but everything in moderation!  People will never forget you after you serve this one!

SUPER Fast & Easy Amazing Authentic Fettuccine Alfredo:

-2 heaping tbsp of whipped sweet butter (land of lakes is one; its found where the butter section is; you can use regular butter but whipped tastes best)

-box of fettuccine, cooked.

-1/2 cup cream

-pepper to taste (lots of it for most)

-3 tbsp parmigiano-reggiano or parmesan cheese (or any other hard cheese)

Optional:

-broccoli florets or roasted veggies

-chicken pieces

-frozen peas

-roasted vegetables

-chopped up cooked Bacon or Pancetta

Put the butter and the cream on medium heat in a large pan and begin to melt the butter.  Don’t brown it and be patient.  When the butter is near melted add in the COOKED fettuccine.  Then add 3 tbsp of cheese.  Add optional items such as chicken, peas, broccoli or roasted veggies.  I love it with broccoli and chicken.

*cook very quickly.  After the fettuccine is in the pan, cooking should only take a couple of minutes and then you are done.

Put it on a plate and top with freshly ground pepper and optional cheese.  Serve with crusty French bread and wine.  Wow!
