Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
This is a good for a quick Alfredo but doesn't taste authentic nor like a restaurant, but it is very good. For more flavor I used cayenne pepper and added some fresh basil. I also used half the amount of butter because this recipe is fatty

Banana Pudding Cake
This recipe was some good banana cake recipe. It is very moist and beats banana bread. It did need some more bananas in my opinion. Also maybe add some banana or peanut butter/chocolate icing for more complex flavor instead of just vanilla. Overall pretty good.
