Recipe #38: Sun-Dried Tomato Fettuccine Alfredo with Spinach

I love fettuccine alfredo. It’s just so creamy and rich and you feel guilty eating it but you don’t care because it’s delicious. I hope I’m not the only one in that boat πŸ˜› But when I saw this recipe I was intrigued because it’s dairy free! Well it calls for a sprinkle of parmesan…

Peanut Butter & Banana Cookies

Peanut butter – yum. Banana – yum. Together – even better. Peanut butter and banana a pretty classic and delicious combination.
