Lasagna with homemade noodles, Mornay sauce infused with sage, butternut and pumpkin purée with nutmeg, onions deglazed with cognac, mozzarella, olive oil drizzle, and pepper.  Lemon ginger pound cake and homemade custard style vanilla ice cream. Rioja for the wine. Everything except the wine and bread was hand-made by my wife and was a GREAT meal!

Tastier Fettuccini Alfredo

Homemade fettuccine with a Mornay sauce that included some cayenne pepper for a slight kick.  Topped with a homemade tomato purée to counter the richness of the cheesy sauce.  Happy New Year!

Traditional Bûche de Noël, also known as a Yule Log. Genoise cake imbibed with Godiva white chocolate liquor, chocolate butter cream frosting. Swiss meringue mushrooms and snowman decorated with white and dark chocolate. Since some people have been asking for the recipe, I included a picture of it below. 😉 Delicious!

Pumpkin and Butternut Squash Ravioli with a brown butter and sage sauce. This is the first time we have made ravioli and pasta entirely by hand, so we still need to work on the presentation!
