White Chicken Chili/Chocolate Truffle Torte

I said in my last blog post that I don’t care for the texture of beans. I’m having to eat my words (literally!) because this chili has TWO different kinds of beans in it: great northern beans and lima beans.

I put extra chicken in hoping that I wouldn’t hate it as much. I found that the beans actually weren’t that bad!

Maybe I just needed them to be seeped in chicken broth, but I actually finished off my bowl!

I’m hoping my mom doesn’t disown me though…. She HATES lima beans. I’d seriously never eaten a lima bean until I went to my husband’s house this past May. My mom just wouldn’t ever serve it to us because she hates them that much. She also hates liver but I don’t think I’ll be trying that any time soon!

It’s still technically August, but I’m trying to make dishes that remind me of Fall. I’m a fall girl!

What could make any dessert irresistible to me? One word: chocolate. I’m obsessed with it. I constantly have one of those giant chocolate bars on standby just in case I need a fix.

This dessert was absolutely sinful. It’s unfortunate, but I just HAD to do my civil duty by making it on a Sunday night. It’s in the name of research!

The recipe in the book actually calls for hazelnuts to be added in, but our local grocery store doesn’t carry them currently.

Fettuccine Alfredo/Chocolate Mousse

Whew, I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to update you guys on one of my favorite dishes!

I’ve always thought alfredo sauce was just cheese sauce….it turns out it’s a lot more delicious than that.

There’s whipping cream, and other stuff I can’t remember right now. But it is sooooo good. It’s definitely a little heavier than say pasta and marinara, but it fills you up so much quicker and really satisfies your appetite.

I loved it, my husband loved it, I’m sure other people would have loved it if we made enough to share.

Btw, if you’re wondering, yes, I did have to google how to spell “fettuccine.”

This chocolate mousse is not for non chocolate lovers. I’m obsessed with chocolate. My husband buys me one of those XL Hershey’s bars pretty much once a week. My favorite flavor of ice cream is Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Therapy. Any I’m naming my firstborn Hershey. Okay, the last one is a lie, but you get the point.

This mousse was too chocolatey for me! I put in the correct amount asked for and everything!

Nevertheless, I loved the texture and how it was light yet dense at the same time. My husband made several jokes about me cooking a moose for dessert. It was funny the first 15 times he said it…. 🙂
