I'm the first one to admit I don't venture too far out of my comfort zone when I'm cooking.  Ingredients are just too expensive for me to be too daring- BUT.. BUT... every once in awhile you have to take a risk and since I had a task to accomplish this month for the AR Allstar program, this was the time.

I originally was going to saute some chicken sausage (roasted garlic flavor) from AlFresco in some olive oil until browned, then toss it in alfredo sauce to smother over some noodles.  However, we had an abundance of Anaheim chile's my hubby wanted to use up and a ton of fresh basil from the  garden, so I got creative.

After I cooked the sliced sausage, I poured two jars of alfredo sauce into a pot.  I turned it on low, then added two thinly sliced chile's to the sauce and a handful of minced basil. I ground in about three or four turns of black pepper, then slid the cooked chicken in.  I let this come together while I cooked up some penne pasta.

What a fantastic flavor combination!! The chiles were such a nice change of pace and it turned a traditional Italian dish into some more like Mexican fusion. Give it a try.. it was sooo good!!

Sorry for the major dork moment calling this jalapeno cream in the picture. Jalapenos would work in place of the chile. I dont' know why I named my picture that- random me moment, I guess.

Every year when we decorate our Christmas tree, I serve fried rice balls with marinara sauce. Over the last couple of years, I've developed a tradition of serving a taco bar on New Years eve night.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made bulgogi marinade for my husband. He'd not had it before and raved about the meat after he grilled it.
My cooking tragedies
The night I was making homemade wontons and due to humidity, they all decided to stick to each other. Wonton balls, anyone?
